Life began in the capital city of British Columbia—Victoria--where I enjoyed my first 19 years. Ever since childhood, California had always been an attraction to me, so while still young and with no ties, I applied for the “green card” and moved to the San Francisco area in the early 1960’s.
Several years later I returned to Victoria with a university degree and secured a position as a speech-language pathologist with the Greater Victoria School District. Within a handful of years I acquired a teaching degree and a Masters degree in education from the University of Victoria. In my last thirteen years with the school district I was the Regional Coordinator (Vancouver Island office) for Special Education Technology—British Columbia (SET-BC), a program that supplies specialized computer hardware and software for students with disabilities. I retired from teaching in 2001. However, having too much free time on my hands was not as enjoyable as I thought it would be.
One of my life long interests has always been real estate. What a perfect match! After acquiring my Real Estate License, I joined DFH Real Estate Ltd. and began in earnest to be a great REALTOR(r) , bringing my patience, enthusiasm, knowledge and good negotiating skills to the business. As I was born and raised in this beautiful city, I am in a unique position to sell Victoria Real Estate!
I married Alice in 1969. We have four children, six grandchildren and an Australian Shepherd, Tessa. We live in the Cordova Bay area of Victoria. My interests are golf, roadsters, gardening and animals. Below are pictures of our dog Tessa and me at Cordova Bay beach.
