He held this position until February 1997 and in March 1997 was elected to Parliament. He served as a Member of Parliament until 2002 and in May 2002, he was again appointed to the Senate by Prime Minister Perry G. Christie.

He is a former lecturer in Accounting at the College of St. Benedict (Nassau Campus) and has served as a member of the Board of Directors of several organizations, including St. Augustine's College Board (1990-1992), the Financial Advisory Services Board, The Bahamas Electricity Corporation Board (1991-1992) and Global Life Insurance Company Ltd.
