I grew up in a small hamlet in central Manitoba where we had a store and sold supplies to the community of fishermen and trappers. I spent the last 25 years as a market researcher and my wife and I have traveled fairly extensively around the world. We have three children who are now young adults. They enjoy traveling with us when they are not in University.
We love adventure and exploring new places. My oldest daughter is a scuba instructor so we enjoy diving when we have the opportunity.
