I recently returned to Ottawa, where I haven't lived since 1995, when I graduated high school. I am lucky enough to have lived on both of Canada's coasts. I went to university at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick. I recently completed an MBA at the Robert H. Lee graduate school at UBC.
I am also fairly active in terms of volunteering. Right now, I donate my time as and member of the Board of Directors and also as the Partnership Coordinator for Computers for Communities, an Ottawa-based non-profit that refurbishes computers, installs Open Source software and donates them back to lower income families. I am also on the Alumni Executive for my former high-school, Ashbury College.
If you want to learn more about my experience or connect with me on a professional level, please view my profile on LinkedIn.
Outside of work, I enjoy listening to and playing all types of music, however I traded my guitar for turntables in about 2001 and have never looked back. I like to spend my spare time hunting down new tracks to use in my DJ mixes. I also enjoy going to see live shows by bands such as The Allman Brothers Band and when I can, Phish. I enjoy a good meal, especially if it involves fire in the form of a BBQ. When it comes to sports, I grew up skiing and playing tennis. In fact, my earliest jobs were being a ski coach and tennis instructor. I also ran a field-sports program for youth at my cottage and was a counselor at a children's camp.
I also have the distinction of having done two of the WORST summer jobs in the history of summer jobs but you can ask me about that some other time...
