I am a retired geophysicist. I live in Calgary with my wife, Sandy, in the Dalhousie community, where we have lived for the last 30 years. This is in the Calgary-Varsity electoral district.
I was born in Corby, England; my family emigrated to Canada in 1957. I have two daughters who live elsewhere in Canada and a son who lives in Calgary.
I have been a member of the Green Party of Alberta since 2014. I am also a member of the Green Party of Canada. I hold the positions of Member at Large in the GPA, president of the Calgary-Varsity CA of the GPA, and member at large in the Calgary-Confederation EDA of GPC.
I have two key interests besides politics: singing and hiking. I am a member of Calgary Renaissance Singers & Players Society; I have been the Business Manager since 1988. I have also served as President of the Society, and served on the Board from 1988 to 2014.
I also serve on the Board of the Skyline Hikers of the Canadian Rockies (I recently stepped down after 11 years as the Equipment Manager).
