I was born in Ontario a fairly long time ago and began my working years in institutional food sales. I left that to become a police officer with the Ontario Provincial Police Force where I served in various locals in the Province and on special duty in Quebec over a 7 1/2 year period. I then went to the University of Toronto in the Commerce Program and then to law school at the University of Windsor. After graduation I began to teach at both the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Business Administration at Windsor (19 years) while practicing law (25 years civil litigation and appellate litigation). While practicing and teaching I completed a Masters degree in Law as well at Wayne State University in Detroit. I then went into consulting and ultimately became the President & CEO of the TMTA (formerly the Michigan Tooling Assoc.).
