I help people say YES to life.
I am dedicated to creating opportunities which enable everyone to live their life authentically, creatively, fearlessly and playfully.
I am a Certified Professional Co-active Coach with the Coach Training Institute which provides me with the skills to help people achieve their goals and live their best life. I also completed the Co-active Leadership Program towards attaining a deeper and richer expression of myself as a leader.
I help anyone wanting to live a richer and more fulfilling life: men who are looking for new ways to live their life in a modern world in which traditional notions of manhood are being expanded; and gay men who are ready to step up to their authentic selves, expand their whole life, inspire others and make a difference in the world.
I’m about helping people make every breath count and saying YES to life.
Here’s a look at what I’ve done in the past.
I am a Chartered Professional Accountant with more than 25 years of experience in the public sector, leading change, transforming teams and achieving results through collaboration. I have worked with two of Canada’s greatest Crown Corporations, the National Capital Commission and CBC/Radio-Canada. I pride myself on fostering an ethical public sector environment based on the values of honesty, integrity and fairness.
Some more personal stuff about me.
As father of two sons, and with three grandchildren, I embrace the richness of fatherhood and strive to leave them the richest inheritance – a parent that made a difference in their lives.
I am a certified professional massage therapist. I believe the body possesses wisdom that needs deep listening, that healthy touch is profoundly nourishing and can help one’s ability to live more fully in all aspects of their life.
As a Canadian, I am proud and grateful to be able to live my life openly and authentically as a gay man in a country which is a world leader in supporting the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) worldwide.
I am passionate about the people in my life. I love exploring the world (particularly road-trips), meeting new people, and embracing the richness and strength of diversity. Playing and having fun is my way of being.
I enjoy being physically active, primarily at the gym and through cycling and hiking. I value a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle.
I am a firm belier in the sentiments of science fiction writer Lois McMaster Bujold, who said ““My home is not a place, it is people.” For me, at this time in my life, my home is in the vibrant city of Montréal.
At 62 years young, I am aging with pride, purpose and pleasure – and striving to make every breath count.
Life is indeed a great adventure when you choose to say YES to it !
