As a Designated Minister my former career was as a Commisioned RCMP officer. I also had the most rewarding experience to travel to Africa and consult in the rebuilding of the Sierra Leone Police force. More recently, I enjoyed a four year term as Councillor for the Township of Greater Madawaska. Today, my wife Donna and I and our Portuguese Waterdog Mitzy, enjoy the great outdoors at home in Calabogie, and where I indulge in one of my passions; gardening. I look forward to officiating whatever type of wedding ceremony you would like for your special day.
I’ve been a long-term resident of the Carleton Place area and having raised my three sons, I am now available to help others like you, celebrate your love and commitment to each other. I’m an experienced motivational speaker and I have been told that people remember my Scottish brogue. It adds something a wee bit different to any occasion. As a happy and upbeat person, I love to read, enjoy my daily walks and visiting with friends. It would give me great pleasure to perform your ceremony and ensure it’s memorable for you and your guests
