I was born and raised in Okotoks, Alberta. At the age of 12 I started working out with weights, and have continued working out 4 or 5 times a week for over 30 years. After graduating from Foothills Composite High School in Okotoks I moved to Calgary and enrolled in the Business Administration Program at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. I tried my hand at professional wrestling for a couple years then I followed in my fathers footsteps, building homes. In 1994 I started my own home building company. After 10 years of home building I moved my focus to working online. I became passionate about the opportunities available online. One of those online passions included trading stocks and futures. The other passion was internet marketing. It is this online marketing passion that drove him to start Ngage Media Group (R Services Ltd.), a Calgary marketing firm.
