Bio

So you want to know about me. Let me think, what can I tell you about myself that will still let me run for President...er, I mean, Prime Minister? I was born and raised in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. In any crowd of over 200 there is always somebody from Moose Jaw. I have a lot of kids. Five in all, born in 1991, 1993, 1995, 1998 and 2008, and yeah, 2008 is not a typo. I am a serial entrepreneur. While still in university I started a clothing store. In the first four months we made some serious money selling those crazy "son of a beach shorts" to all types of sports teams and university organizations. We went big and opened a store in a mall and slowly went broke over the next two years. I also started two retail computer operations (Delron and Compusmart), growing each to over 12 million dollars in revenue before selling them to join Point2 and create Point2Agent. I am a physicist. Well, at least I have a degree in Physics. When my daughter Robyn (1995) was younger she used to like to tell her friends, "My dad is a rocket scientist." Not so much any more. Persistence should have been my middle name. I don't know when to quit - even when (at least in retrospect) I ought to have known. I am a dreamer. I love dreaming up ideas and putting them into action. Remember when you were a kid? Anything seemed possible and dreams were the norm. It hurts me to see so many people who used to have dreams give up on them and get beaten by the drudgery of life. I am extremely lucky. I have the greatest parents, wife, and kids. It's probably why anyone who knows me can tell if I am in a building or room. They only have to listen for my laugh.
