Reflections on my five years as a podcast host! +The Conversation Hub 
I seem to lose track of time.There are days when I think I'm still in my late twenties until my body sends me a gentle reminder that I'm actually in my mid-forties. We just celebrated my youngest daughter's 9th birthday but it really feels like we just brought her home last month. My middle daughter is becoming the most amazing young woman I know but it seems like it was just yesterday when I saw her get airlifted to Children's Hospital on the da...

Story
Tagline
Musician || Host of The Conversation Hub || Catalyst
Introduction
First and foremost I am Canadian and French is my first language. I am very proud of my heritage and it’s a big part of who I am. I tend to describe myself as follows: Husband and father of 3, change agent, catalyst, composer, worship leader, independent recording artist, God follower, hockey fan and social media evangelist.

I love to engage people in meaningful conversation and to help others think about the possibilities. There is nothing more rewarding to me than helping make a difference in someone’s life. For that reason, my current work (development officer for a health care foundation) aligns perfectly with that philosophy.

I am always thinking about the next opportunity. For me the possibilities are endless and my goal in life is to live an abundant life.

The best thing that has ever happened to me is Up With People. UWP gave me the chance to travel the world, experience new cultures and, most importantly, introduced me to Heather – my wife of 17 years. She brings joy to my life and together we are blessed with three amazing children.

I've released 2 cds of original music: Until Tomorrow Comes (2009) and Simple Things (2011).

I am also the host of The Conversation Hub weekly podcast
Bragging rights
Since September of 2010, I've completed 4 half-marathons, a full marathon and a handful of other races shorter races! I feel great and have lost 60+ pounds!
