I have been fortunate to have experienced many character developing opportunities.
A family downhill skiing 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 process management which I brought to the construction tool rental space where I led and grew a twelve person company to over thirty.
Today my focus is on helping businesses improve their operations with an edge toward the technological side. All of the business processes are examined and iterated on for continuous improvement.
My world travels and analytical background have allowed me to succeed at the challenges that have come my way.
