Personal Finance Writer + Trainer + eLearning content developer
I am a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA, CA), and a personal finance writer, trainer and eLearning content developer. I am also author of five books on personal financial issues including three national bestsellers. I was a columnist for CPA Magazine from 2014 to 2018.
I am a straight shooter able to explain the often confusing world of personal finance in plain English. I have a no-nonsense style and my views are totally independent. I do not work in the financial services industry and do not sell any financial products. There are no sponsors behind the scenes shaping what I say - I say and write what I want - providing unfiltered advice for the hard-working Canadian.
I currently operate my own personal finance training and eLearning content development firm and give in-class and on-line seminars to CPAs in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador and Nova Scotia.
I have made many television appearances including CITY TV Breakfast Television, BNN, CBC NewsWorld, CTV and CFTO News, Rogers TV, CBC Venture and CHTV. I have also been featured on many local and national radio programs including CBC Radio One.
I am a member of CPA Canada and CPA Ontario. I am a frequent speaker, often appear in the media and contribute regularly to financial publications. I am also a past-director of Credit Canada, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people deal with credit problems.
