Born in Germany, raised on a farm in Bolton, Ontario I moved to the west coast in 1997 from Toronto leaving behind a legal career. Wanting to do something fresh on the west coast I co-founded an IT College, and 2 IT related companies in Victoria, BC of which today I am the CEO. My passion is traveling and boating. I am a big kid always looking for the next adventure. My wife Paphada and I own & operate Birds of a Feather Victoria, and Birds of a Feather Thailand B&Bs as a lifestyle choice. While both facilities are open year-round we ourselves enjoy Victoria from April through October, and Thailand the November through March. We compliment our B&B lifestyle with having fun operating land and marine EcoTours in BC, and escorted cultural and historical vacation packages in Thailand. We are fortunate to get to know a lot of fascinating people.
