Kirk began his insurance career in 2006 working in business development for New Home Warranty.  An interest in claims brought him to Vancouver Island where he grew experience in residential and commercial property claims. A move to a national firm in 2011 honed his growth gaining valuable knowledge in catastrophes such as, 2013 Calgary/ High River flood and 2016 Fort McMurray wildfire.

Holding a CIP designation, Kirk specializes in major residential and commercial losses, as well as claims in remote indigenous communities.   He also handles property liability and bodily injury claims.
