InfoI was raised in Oxford, Nova Scotia. Growing up I was very active in the hockey community where I played for the Oxford Colts and later took my spot as an up-and-coming referee. I was very fortunate to officiate some high levels of hockey and enjoyed my time on the Cumberland County Minor Hockey Association Executive in its early stages. Today I am an active coach for my son’s hockey teams and enjoy watching the young players go and develop into tomorrow's coaches.

Upon graduation, I started an electrical apprenticeship. I completed all the hours required and technical training right here in Nova Scotia. I have had the benefit to see both the construction side and industrial side of this trade and was very fortunate to be able to do all this right here at home. I have also worked in the fire service field as a fire technician and inspector. I have traveled all over the Maritimes and some of Quebec and Eastern USA doing work for all levels of government and the private sector.

Currently, I am production manager for Oxford Frozen Foods at the battered product facility. After working for Oxford Frozen Foods as an Industrial Electrician, this promotion came as a new challenge to my life. It was an opportunity to utilize some of the training I received at both Oxford Frozen Foods and my position as Chief at the Oxford Fire Department.

For the past 20 years I have been a proud member of the Oxford Fire Department. I served 5 consecutive years as Deputy Chief and the past 12 as Chief. I am a graduate of the Dalhousie Fire Service Leadership and Management programs and sit on different executives in the Province of Nova Scotia and in the Maritimes.

My Grandfather, George Henley was MLA of the former riding of Cumberland West. I looked up to my Grandfather and learned a lot from his actions and respect for people. Even after his retirement from politics he carried on relationships with everyone he had met, and he cherished that.

My wife Tracy and I reside in the Town of Oxford and have 3 children. We have planted our feet here in rural Nova Scotia for many reasons. The people, the landscape, recreation, work, 4 distinct seasons and much more will keep us here for years to come. I want to put myself forward to help this area grow and reach the potential it can from one end to the other. We can be great, but we can be so much more. I want this area to be appealing for young families to settle and older friends to retire back to. Together we can succeed.
