  • Favorite quote
    “If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.” – George McFly, Back to the Future
  • What attracted you to Slalom?
    Slalom is full of smart, fun, ambitious people focused on delivering business outcomes for their clients. I’m excited to be a part of this team and bringing Slalom to Canada!
  • What’s the best piece of professional advice you’ve ever gotten?
    “7 Habits” is a classic for so many reasons, including the key insight that there’s plenty of time to accomplish the important things in life … and don’t sweat the rest. I’ve tried hard to apply that principle to all aspects of my personal and professional life.
  • What was your first job?
    I had a great summer in high school working for a landscaping company. The days were long and exhausting, but a summer spent outside with a great team was fantastic!
  • People would be surprised to hear that I...
    Rode a motorcycle from Vancouver to Las Vegas with my brother and a great friend. People would not be surprised to hear that I sold that motorcycle and used the money for a down-payment on a minivan when our children were born.
  • Education
    I have a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Queen’s University (Kingston, ON).
  • Hobbies and Volunteering
    I really enjoy being a volunteer coach for my sons’ hockey and baseball teams. I love “reading” books on Audible, my weekly Economist, skiing as a family in the winter and taking time off to travel or visit the family cottage in the summer.
