I have been a proud part of the Grande Prairie community since I was four years old, back when Grande Prairie only had 15,000 people. Throughout my life I have been privileged to have grown up around parents who taught me to work hard and ensure that family is always well supported and well loved. It was instilled in me that in order to do this fully I must be confident in accepting knowledge from others where I may lack. That lesson resulted in me surrounding myself with business people at a younger age that I could learn and grow from. I was always intrigued by the way they conducted not only their business but also themselves. I made a choice to conduct whatever business I chose over the years whether it be in retail, as a Realtor, as a home builder or developer; in a way that reflects the high morals my parents and various mentors have taught me. I am fortunate to be a part of an incredibly supportive, compassionate, loyal family at home with my wife Dalene and two amazing daughters Priya and Saige, as well as my extended Unique Family.
I started Unique Home Concepts Inc. in 2004 with just an idea of hiring a few contractors to build a single house, to a few napkin style blueprints that worked their way into digital designs to where we are today. As proud as I am about the building growth that we have accomplished, my real pride lies in my team and the culture that we have created together. Our culture at Unique Home Concepts is one that many businesses conceptualize about on paper but don’t always achieve in reality. The core values of quality, integrity and loyalty that this team exemplifies is what makes us a family and not just an office. As owners we believe in being transparent with our team while encouraging and implementing their ideas for growth, supporting them in their passions to support our local community and rewarding them for their dedication because our success is a reflection of our team as a whole. Having such an amazing team has allowed me the time to be on City Council for the 2017-2021 term, creating an opportunity to help ensure that Grande Prairie continues to be the best community it can be.
