Thanks for stopping by.

Raised on theRay Head shot2 prairies, I was fortunate, as a young man, to sign on with an innovative company called Scepter Mfg., who were extruding PVC pipe for municipal infrastructure. After a short time, they offered me a transfer to Winnipeg, MB.  That prompted a “Go With GUSTO” decision: Propose to the Brown Eyed Girl. WOW! She said yes! That was easily the best move I have ever made. I took the transfer.

While in Winnipeg, Chuck, my manager, invited me out to his cabin, and took me sailing on his Laser dinghy. I was hooked. The sailing passion has prompted many “Go With GUSTO” decisions since that weekend.

A number of years later, it was time for another “Go With GUSTO” moment. I took a leap to become self employed as an independent manufacturer’s representative, and helped my brother to build a profitable and sustaining sales and marketing company.

Most recently, I have earned a Certificate in Executive Coaching from Royal Roads University, and am looking forward to assisting others to “Go With GUSTO”. I hold an ISPA Offshore Skipper designation. A Dana 24, s/v Go with GUST-O is our current, and awesome boat.

I am curious, fast paced, and assertive by nature. As you will see here, I love my God, my Brown Eyed Girl, my family, sailing, and a bit of photography.
