Questions & Answers

What is one of your favourite cities and why? I’m drawn towards cities where live, work, play and learn are closely integrated. I love living in Vancouver but Barcelona, New York and Paris are favourites to travel to!

What do you wish you had learned earlier? The compounding investment returns provided by cash flowing real estate.

What Charitable Project has your attention right now? I’ve always been interested in providing opportunities to those who have been dealt a poor hand. I like Opportunity International which provides loans, primarily to entrepreneurial women in 3rd world countries.

What are your favourite travel adventures? Combining charitable work with overseas travel is always a favourite. Trips to Africa which included safaris are at the top with cycling adventures in Europe close behind!

Best advice you received early in your career? I used to seek out mentors, buy them lunch and ask them questions about life, business and how they got to where they were now. Don’t ever compromise your integrity. Let your word stand and stand on your word.
