Moira and I were born and brought up in Africa (Zimbabwe), and moved to Canada in 1987. We have been married for 37 years (Yes, I KNOW we don't look old enough :), and we have 3 amazing grown-up kids. We love to travel to far-flung places, usually on humanitarian missions. These have taken us to rural Cambodia, Northern Thailand/Myanmar, Africa, and the slums of Mumbai where we support slum schools which give kids a chance to get out of poverty. We count ourselves SO fortunate to be able to work with people like this, and learn from their incredible strength and resilience. We always come back feeling that we have received far more than we have given!
