People say that I am one of Bowen Island's outspoken ambassadors - I am constantly singing its praises. I feel incredibly fortunate to live where I do.

I moved to Bowen after nearly 30 years of visiting friends, being drawn back time and again to its stunning setting, strong sense of community, and proximity to Vancouver.

The skillset I bring to real estate is unique. I honed my technical and artistic abilities in 3D Computer Animation/Visual Effects on Academy Award winning teams for films such as Life of Pi, The Golden Compass, and The Revenant. I have collaborated with creatives, engineers, producers, and directors, from all over the world.

I now direct my attention to detail and organization and focus on the niche market of real estate on Bowen Island. My eye for visual design is perfectly suited to marketing homes in the modern world of social media.

I am approachable and authentic, reliable and trustworthy. I love my island home. I would love to share it with you.
