About Me

I am a husband and a father of two little boys. I am an eternal optimist who believes in treating all people with the utmost respect regardless of who they are or where they come from.  Everyone has something to contribute if you take the time to listen and understand their point of view.

I am proud of the fact that I grew up on a farm and learned countless things from my family.  My parents have given me an excellent foundation both in character and in confidence and continue to teach and support me throughout my life.

I graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor of Science Honours Health Studies with a minor in Gerontology.

I always enjoy learning new things and challenging myself to find innovated solutions to a variety of problems.  I am a self taught IT professional always looking for ways to improve myself and to improve the efficiency and capacity of existing and new processes.  Collaboration, cooperation and standardization are important for projects and people to realize the potential that they carry.
