About Mike D

I am an avid amateur photographer and beside my family, I have an eclectic set of interests including local history, architecture, cemeteries, heraldry, vexillology, genealogy, community theatre, military, agriculture, etc.

I am married to the love of my life, Bill, and between us, in our blended family, we have a daughter, four sons, a granddaughter and two grandsons.

I work in local government for a neighbouring City.

I am a country boy at heart and a “once & future” farmer. I was previously the co-owner of a blueberry farm where we also raised swine, goats, chickens and turkeys. My ultimate dream is to do that again but on a larger scale.

I was born in Ontario but have lived in the west since I was a toddler and consider myself a “Western Canadian”.
