I am a seasoned and well respected financial industry heavyweight. I have over 35 years of hands on financial experience both in the public and private sectors.

I have worked in the income tax industry since 2007. I worked for Liberty Tax Services as well as ran my own Tax Preparation and Bookkeeping business.

I was employed by the Department of National revenue, now the Canada Revenue Agency from July 15, 1956 to July 15, 1993. During that time I worked in all sections of the Department, including enforcement (getting delinquent taxpayers to file returns) collections, appeals, special investigations and audit.
