I am the president of CM Canada holdings Inc. I have had the privilege of being been part of this Creative Memories comeback story with Caleb and our remarkable St. Cloud team from the very beginning. As a proud Canadian, it warms my heart to see the Canadian Advisers and Customers embracing the new Creative Memories. It is a pleasure to work with you every day to grow your businesses and spread our Mission in Canada.
I spend my time interacting with our Canadian Advisors, helping with photo or video shoots in Canada, meeting customers & helping organize events here at the office, liaising with Head Office on matters relating to our Canadian business and helping with any legal matters that come up: the most recent being the rules for our Where In The World Photo Contest. At the beginning of August our Canadian team doubled in size when we welcomed Marja Deeth. Marja has a background in scrapbooking, card making and social media as well as a passion for our Mission. I am thrilled to have her onboard.
I have been married to my wife Rhonda for 26 years and I am the proud father of four daughters ranging in ages from 14 to 22. All are hail and healthy and embracing life which, as their father, is all I can possibly hope for.
Our lives are a fabric woven over time with the threads of experiences and journeys with faith, family, friends. Every fabric is unique and colorful. A new thread entered the fabric of my life a few months ago when I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I have chosen to share this for several reasons. Firstly, it is now part of who and what I am. Secondly, I know that many of you are experiencing things much more challenging then early stage Parkinson’s and I want you to know that you are not alone. It sounds like a cliché, but when you join the CM Community, you become part of a family. Two years in, I’m still finding it quite remarkable.
Our Mission is all about celebrating the vibrant and colorful threads of life…be it the joy of a wedding or a beautifully lucid moment with a parent or spouse suffering with dementia. All are worth sharing, remembering, cherishing. What we do matters. A lot!

Great intro. What a beautiful family.
Thanks for sharing so much with all of us. You have a beautiful family and now an even bigger family with CM!
Thank you for sharing John. I’m a survivor of breast cancer and know the importance of balance in our lives. Scrapbooking means so much to me as i capture memories of my family and travels. I’m glad to have met you and have you head up our CM family in Canada!
Wishing you well on your journey with Parkinson’s. I really enjoyed reading your heartfelt story.
Thanks for sharing, like everything in life, knowing where we come from (business or personal) gives us the confidence to be successful going forward.
Welcome to the family, John. It was good to read of all the strengths you bring to us. One of those strengths is your passion for your family and for the CM mission of sharing and strengthening relationships. Looking forward to learning more under your direction.
Thanks for sharing, John. It has been great getting to know you. It is wonderful to have a Canadian office and a proud Canadian at the helm!
