About Derek

I have lived in Middlesex County almost my whole life. I was born and raised in Strathroy, went to high school in London, then moved to London to attend Fanshawe College. I worked throughout most of high school and college, and entered the workforce full-time after graduation. I have been fortunate enough to spend a lot of time in cities like Hamilton, Kitchener, Waterloo, Toronto, and the island of São Miguel in the Azores thanks to work and family.

My wife and I moved to Kilworth in 2009, shortly after the birth of our first son, and we adore the village. We have since moved to a new home, also in Kilworth, and are very happy we stayed. The more we reach out, the more great neighbours we find living in both Kilworth and Komoka.

I work in the web hosting industry, and am currently Chair of the Emerging Leaders Advocacy Committee. I also previously served as the Financial Secretary at the Portuguese Canadian Club of Strathroy. Now I want to be your Councillor to bring your voice to Middlesex Centre Council, and ensure the concerns of Ward 4’s citizens are heard loud and clear, and to ensure that the decisions made work for you and your family.
