I was raised in Waterloo, Ontario, and in 1996 discovered Sahaja Yoga in Toronto. Since then my life has been full of adventure and fun. 2014 was an especially memorable year, serving as Principal to an amazing group of students at ISPS. I am a qualified teacher, and love working with children and teens. Marcel and I are excited to be helping establish a Sahaj school here in Nova Scotia. Together we've lived in many places, but now we look forward to sharing the deep peace and beauty of this, our home, with the world!
Since finding Sahaja Yoga in 1992 in Switzerland, I have incorporated this meditative practice into all aspects of my life. I am very excited about this latest venture into Sahaja education, as I immensely enjoyed my time as General Manager of ISPS. Together with my wife Mary, I have been loving life on the South Shore of Nova Scotia for the last decade. As a volunteer for the DEVI school I look forward to putting my business and real estate expertise to good use.

I bring to the project my experience in business & finance, and of the day-to-day running of the schools in Vancouver and Borotin.
