I’ve been active 20-plus years in the play-industry with the last 10 as a third-party playspace compliance inspector and risk-management consultant, through my own company Playchek Services Inc., London ON. My website www.playchek.com will provide you a full list of my accreditations as play-related references and business background.
Through personal and family involvement living with “special needs”, I’ve always been particularly compassionate towards inclusive rights for all. This background, as well as my extensive play-experience, then led me towards becoming involved with the OPA initiative to help promote and understand the Ontario Regulations and technical requirements for Accessibility as they relate to play environments.
Personally, I am an amateur photographer, an avid runner, and I enjoy endurance challenges such as marathon-canoe paddling. As for personal success, I must give credit to my family having raised two strong and successful daughters alongside my wife of 34 years. Together we travel often, and always looking forward to the next adventure!
