Gord’s television roots were planted as a volunteer, producing programs for the community station in Courtenay while he was still in high school. After graduation, he was appointed as the station’s Programming Manager, becoming the youngest person in Canada to hold such a position.
After several years he moved to Vancouver and worked in various media roles, including owning his own business creating commercials and corporate videos, before immersing himself in television news. Gord jumped at the opportunity to return to the Comox Valley in December of 2005 to become our North Island videographer. His regular travels take him to every corner and backroad of Vancouver Island, and he wouldn’t have it any other way.
