Blogger, Senior Tax Consultant, Man About Town

John is a lifetime Albertan, sometimes blogger, intermittent gym-goer, and likes that some think him to be a "man about town". He was the writer behind the MrYYC blog and still tries to remain up-to-date on all of the myriad things to do in and around the city. By day, John is employed in the property tax appeal business with AEC Property Tax Services.
