Real Estate Driven by What You Really Need

We’re a full-service, facts-based real estate team specializing in Toronto’s East End.

The Halyard Group was formed in response to a lack of personalized real estate services in Toronto’s East End.

We believe in honest and effective business practices driven by our clients’ needs.

With no wasted time, no passive strategy, and no ineffective marketing, we’re changing the game in Toronto’s real estate industry.

​​​​​The east end is my home. It’s where I work, where I’m raising my kids, and where I’d love to help you find a home.

In my former life, I competed as a top-level athlete in sailing, eventually leading to my competing in the 2008 Beijing Olympic games.

Prior to and after 2008 I built a team of dedicated athletes, teaching many young athletes to sail and coaching others to the Olympics.

In many ways, real estate is an industry for self-starters, and sailing is the same. It takes long hours and intense focus on a singular goal to compete at a high level, and I find myself repeating many of the strategies and habits in my career as I did in competing.

Real estate has become this new source of obsession.

​​​​​Born and raised in Toronto’s East End and currently raising a young family downtown, I have developed a broad scope and authentic connection with all that our city has to offer. I love Toronto!  I love our lifestyle and culture, our parks and beaches, our restaurants and nightlife, our architecture new and old… I even love (regrettably) our Toronto Maple Leafs.

I am a hard working, self motivated go-getter who has spent most of my adult life in the music industry achieving great successes and riding out big dreams. While a large part of my previous career was independently entrepreneurial, I have always valued the importance of working with others to accomplish goals.  I truly enjoy working with people from all walks of life. 

Becoming a real estate agent was a natural progression where I can continue to collaborate with clients to achieve common objectives. I love analyzing each individual situation and coming up with unique strategies that work… So let’s get to work!

Real Estate has always been one of my biggest interests. I love my role in the team as I am involved in every aspect of the business. From getting the house ready to list for sale, to helping clients and agents at every stage of the process, my job is to make sure things get done to get the best results for our clients.

I am proud to be part of The Halyard Group because we truly care about our clients’ best interest. We are a team of hardworking people who always put their clients first. All my previous work experience has been in industries in which customer service skills are the most important.

With a Bachelors degree in Economics, and my Real Estate License, I have truly found a career with The Halyard Group where I can feel professionally fulfilled and achieve continued growth.

I've called Toronto home for more than 30 years. I grew up in the west end of Ottawa and moved to Toronto for university, studying Image Arts at Toronto Metropolitan University.  I fell in love with the diversity, energy and heartbeat of the city and have remained a Torontonian ever since.


I've lived downtown, central Toronto and have called the east end home for more than two decades. I live in a connected community in the Woodbine Corridor situated between the Beach and Leslieville with my wife and two kids.


Before real estate, I ran my own digital design and animation business for over 25 years and created an app called, At School Today™, that improved teacher to parent communication and parent to child engagement offering fast payment and autofill permission forms on a smartphone.


I love everything design. With a background in graphics and 3D modeling, I enjoy designing and reimagining a space to transform it into a more usable and visually appealing experience. Custom design and builds are a passion of mine and have led me to my focus in real estate.  My background in graphics and design are what help me visualize how to personalize a house into a home.  I enjoy working with people, connecting, finding investment opportunities, working with a talented team and having a good laugh.
