Prior to working at Shaw Sabey I was an Account Executive at two other Vancouver brokerages.

I just finished two. I read the biography of Dieter Brock who was a quarterback for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers when I was a kid and playing Pee Wee football at the time. I also just finished the biography of Lenoardo da Vinci.

3. What is the culture like for the team you work with?

I’d say it’s very good! Everyone is happy to collaborate and share information.

Managing time.

Mexico because I have my wife’s family and friends to take me around safely.

Good family life, maintaining a curiosity about everything and making enough money to experience everything with my family and what I want to do.

8. What’s your favourite show that you’re currently watching?

I don’t watch much TV at all so it’s mostly sports.

9. What has been the highlight of your career working at Shaw Sabey so far?

There have been a lot of great highlights which is good but I’ve really enjoyed seeing everyone more together in the same building within the past year and becoming such a large independent brokerage.

Bon Jovi.
