Personal Profile

From a young age I have been fortunate enough to have experienced many character developing opportunities.

A family downhill skiing pastime evolved into a decade of racing snowboards including representing Canada on the World Cup from 2008-2013. 

My engineering degree exposed me to construction, maintenance and business management which I brought to the construction tool rental space where I led and grew a 12 person company to 20+.

My world travels and analytical background have allowed me to succeed at all challenges to come my way.
