I'm incredibly passionate about real estate. At 28 years old, it can be a bit surprising that I've been working in real estate for over 10 years. My entrepreneurial spirit has always guided me to the real estate industry. In high school, I founded my first business, which was a digital marketing agency for real estate professionals. My business created Youtube, Twitter, and Facebook pages for realtors, and built listing video tours for them on a subscription model. I presented that business to an incubator program for young entrepreneurs, where my business was supported by the Province of Ontario and venture capital - this made me able to increase the number of real estate professionals I worked with. Eventually, the business was purchased by a larger group who saw value in the model, and I moved to Thun, Switzerland to complete my military conscription as a Panzergrenadier.

After returning from Switzerland, I attended the University of Guelph's Lang School of Business for a Bachelor of Commerce in Real Estate. I gathered more real estate experience through various co-ops, business startups, part-time jobs, and volunteer work throughout my university career.

One of my favourite parts about working in real estate is that I can still function as an entrepreneur, working alongside my clients on colleagues on various startups and operating businesses.

I love to talk about real estate, please reach out to me on any of the following!
