For more than three decades, Don has been dedicated to helping his clients achieve their financial and life goals. In addition to his regular practice, Don’s team offers a special Emeritus Retirement Service for retiring UBC faculty.

Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Don attended the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce Degree in 1980. After two years in the commercial real estate industry, he decided financial planning was his vocation and joined a national firm in 1982. In 1987, he and his partners opened their own office in downtown Vancouver. Since then, working mainly by referral, Don has built his practice on earned trust and consistent service as his clients’ lives evolve. With his busy geologist wife, Kim, he pursues life adventures. Recreational activities also include long distance rides on his BMW motorcycle, playing hockey, skiing and the occasional game of golf.
