Read my blog

I've spent my entire life in media - with over 53 years as Program Director or VP/GM of top radio stations in Vancouver, Toronto, Edmonton and Calgary.

Currently I'm 'semi retired' and operate a consulting company called RADIOWISE INC. specializing in media; social media; and marketing. I also do a great deal of work in public service including Jerry Forbes Centre; Santas Anonymous, the Edmonton Singing Christmas Tree; Crescendo, and the John Cameron Changing Lives Foundation.

I am also a senior consultant with Ian Murray Projects. I was proudly awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for Community service category.

I love world travel - especially river cruises in Europe - and our lake home at Lac Ste Anne

I'm the proud Father of a couple of great daughters - Lauren and Rayanne - Grandfather to Liam - Husband to Kim.
