A lawyer, he was first elected to city council in the 1947 municipal election, and served for three years as councillor for Ward 2 (Cabbagetown and Rosedale). He was elected to the provincial legislature in the 1951 election, representing the district of St. David as a member of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party. He served until 1955, and did not stand for re-election in the 1955 election.
