I am the president of CM Canada holdings Inc. I have had the privilege of being been part of this Creative Memories comeback story with Caleb and our remarkable St. Cloud team from the very beginning. As a proud Canadian, it warms my heart to see the Canadian Advisors and customers embracing the new Creative Memories. It is a pleasure to work with you every day to grow your businesses and spread our Mission in Canada.
I spend my time interacting with our Canadian Advisors, helping with photo or video shoots in Canada, meeting customers and helping organise events here at the office, liaising with Head Office on matters relating to our Canadian business and helping with any legal matters that come up: the most recent being the rules for our Where In The World Photo Contest. At the beginning of August our Canadian team doubled in size when we welcomed Marja Deeth. Marja has a background in scrapbooking, card making and social media as well as a passion for our Mission. I am thrilled to have her onboard.
I have been married to my wife Rhonda for 26 years and I am the proud father of four daughters ranging in ages from 14 to 22. All are hail and healthy and embracing life which, as their father, is all I can possibly hope for.
Our lives are a fabric woven over time with the threads of experiences and journeys with faith, family, friends. Every fabric is unique and colourful. A new thread entered the fabric of my life a few months ago when I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I have chosen to share this for several reasons. Firstly, it is now part of who and what I am. Secondly, I know that many of you are experiencing things much more challenging then early stage Parkinson’s and I want you to know that you are not alone. It sounds like a cliché, but when you join the CM Community, you become part of a family. Two years in, I’m still finding it quite remarkable.
Our Mission is all about celebrating the vibrant and colourful threads of life…be it the joy of a wedding or a beautifully lucid moment with a parent or spouse suffering with dementia. All are worth sharing, remembering, cherishing. What we do matters. A lot!
