My refereeing career has spanned more than 36 years in Western Canada and is still going strong. I had the honor of learning my craft from top referees such as Werner Winseman, Dante Maglio, Bob Allen, Gord Rogers and John Meachin who were all FIFA Referees. With hard work and dedication I achieved my highest rank in 1991-1995 as a National Referee. With this achievement, I had the privilege of meeting such players as Beckenbauer, Giorgio Chinaglia, and Mr. Soccer himself (PELE). I have done Nelson summer games, Kamloops Canada Games, Final of Vancouver Metro League, Final of Burnaby Men's League, Semi Final Pacific Coast League, Sun Tournament Final, the Final of Metro Woman Soccer League, and Assistant Referee for CSL (Whitecaps).
With BC Soccer, I have been a Certified Instructor and Assessor since 1985; and spent time as President, Vice President, and Director of Vancouver Soccer Referee Association. I enjoy giving back to the soccer community, so if you have questions, please feel free to ask. I speak 4 languages for those who are more comfortable speaking their native tongue; French, Italian, Spanish and English.
