I am 42 years old, the son of immigrant parents, born in Toronto, raised in the GTA and, after finishing school, continued to live and work in Toronto.  My wife Teresa and I have been married 4 years and have been residents of Ward 7 for 3 years (our first home).  Presently self-employed as an equities trader, my work experience centres around Banking & Investments, useful tools in understanding the "numbers" behind large organizations (even the City of Toronto).  I hold an MBA in Finance and a BA in Political Science & Economics, which, combined with my work experience, will be effective in asking the right questions at City Hall.
