Artur has been actively involved in promotional projects with professional associations, including Downtown Merchants and Downtown BIA; he has worked on a multitude of successful advertising projects with City of Courtenay, North Island College and Crown Isle.
Artur has also taken leadership positions in local networking organizations such as President for BNI Olympic Gold, where his team became one of the most successful chapters on Vancouver Island.
Artur graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and continued his passion for theatre by directing and acting in productions with several Calgary theatre companies.

Artur’s door is always open so pop by and say ‘hello’.
