After his own divorce in 2008, Don experienced the pitfalls of the traditional divorce process.  With his deep financial background and dedication to ensuring the best models to ensure your Fresh Start, Don will work with you to provide the information you need to make the financial decisions you want during this transition.

His background working 15 years in the Financial District of Toronto, as well as his negotiation, mediation and training skills have combined to provide proven results for his clients.  

Don has also pledged himself to many charitable organizations in the local community, working with Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Peer Mediation and Skills Training as well as Businesses For Calgary Kids. 


Staying true to his desire to grow the world of ADR, Don also works with ADRIA, is a Board Member with Alberta Family Mediation Society and acts as Executive Director for the Alberta Arbitration and Mediation Society.

Don's background, tireless commitment and knowledge will help you in achieving the agreement you deserve.
