Value to Clients

I enjoy building a personal relationship with my clients through one on one meetings or conversations over the phone. I strive to find solutions that best suit the individual needs of my clients.

Outside of Work

Sports have always played a large role in Paul’s life, and he currently plays rugby for the Nor’Westers in the Alberta Senior Men’s League. Paul and his wife play slo-pitch with the firm team, Field of Dreams, while also enjoying skiing and golfing together. His love for coaching currently has him serving as an assistant coach with his wife’s junior high basketball team. For down time, Paul enjoys relaxing with a good book and traveling.
