Personal Profile

I have been fortunate 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 twelve person company to over thirty.

Today my interests are in Services, Data, Software Solutions, Consulting, and of course Excel.

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