Born in Bergen Norway
At the age of 3 my family moved to Canada. I grew up in Prince Rupert where I lived for 18 years.
I attended University and completed a degree in Economics. I worked over the years in the fishing and in the forest industry.
In 2006 moved back to this region, Port Edward, where I met my wife Dianne Wampler, we have been married for 10 years and we love living in this area.
Together we have four children and four grandchildren.
Dianne and I enjoy boating and marine activities, hiking and walking.
I have served two previous terms on Council in Port Edward.
I have been active in community organizations: the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce as well as the Rotary Club.
As the Port Edward Mayor I am now on the following committees:
- Northern Health
- Northwest Regional Advisory Committee
- Port Edward Harbour Authority
I look forward to the next four years and what I can do to support and enhance our beautiful community.
