Biography

I was born into the Auction world at a very young age. I grew up watching my father sell Vehicles and i wanted to achieve that same dream. I was hired as a bid spotter for my father at the family owned Auto Auction at the age of 7 years old. I then went on to teaching myself the Auctioneers chant. I spent my summer holidays at the family Auto Auction practicing my auction chant. This lend to my first time experience as an auctioneer, which was at a staff Christmas party. As i stood on the Auction block nervous, I sold Christmas presents for 25 and 30 dollars. This event seemed to be “for fun” at the moment but increased my passion to be an auctioneer. A couple of years later, My father had a farm auction. I was asked by the auctioneer as well as my father to sell the first item and I agree to do so. I sold a pair of Texas longhorn bull horns for $50. Since that day, Ive worked at as many auctions as I possibly can to gather experience. In the year 2010, I went to Adesa Auctions in Ottawa to do my high school Co-op program. I take a strong passion in the Automotive Auction business, which lead to me continuing the Co-op program the following year back at Adesa. In these two years of Co-op, Ive experienced a high level of auctions & auctioneering. As i finished the Co-op at Adesa Ottawa & Adesa Montreal as well as my high school career. The follow week after high school was complete i was hired at Adesa Ottawa & Adesa Montreal as a full time Auctioneer/ Bid spotter. I have been working there ever since. This past September, I participated in the first every International Plowing Match Auctioneers Challenge. Being as this event was in the same village I live in, Finch I couldn’t help but enter. The morning of the challenge soon showed up and 17 auctioneers from across the counties were present. I eventually found myself 3rd place out of the 17. As my Team Cornwall card reads “He is a young ambitious auctioneer.” this is the story explaining the statement.
