He was born in a rural, agricultural town of Southwestern Ontario. He attended McMaster University for biochemistry and University College Dublin for medicine. He completed the Rural Family Medicine residency in Memorial University Newfoundland. He then worked in a remote outport of coastal Newfoundland, in an oceanside hospital, where together with 1-4 other family physicians, he shared running the 24-hour emergency room, office-based family medicine, acute inpatient service, cardiac care unit, and long term care.

Finally, he used the knowledge gleaned thus far to set up the current medical practice on the West Coast here in Metchosin.
