Kevin's life is driven by his passion for his family, his business and his need to make a difference in the lives of others. His energy and caring have been evident since 1986 in the insurance and financial industry.

Since starting his tenure with London Life Insurance Company at age 21 he has often referred to his career as a "way of life" , and a very unique, humbling and gratifying experience.

Since 1988, he has been a life and qualifying member of the Million Dollar Round Table, the world's most prestigious financial services educational institution. He is also an active member of Advocis - The Financial Advisors Association of Canada.

With a love for sports and the outdoors Kevin spends most of his free time golfing and playing hockey. However, his keen interest lies within his deep appreciation for the outdoors and photography, exploring the Georgian Bay by foot, kayak or simply dropping a fishing line in the water in his spare time continues to provide memorable moments for him and his family and friends.

Kevin is also actively involved with his community and sponsorship of several organizations in his home town of Parry Sound, including the annual Bayshore Financial Group Inc. charity golf tournament that raises funds for cancer research every June.

Kevin has always had a fascination to grow and continues to attend industry conferences. He is passionately motivated to improving his personal and business development through coaching and mentoring. His collection of famous quotes keeps him focused, including his favorite, "An anxious heart weighs a person down, but a kind word cheers them up."
