I am a results-oriented leader with a breadth of knowledge in both business intelligence and IT management. With a career spanning over 35 years, I understand a wide range of business practices and effectively translate them into robust business models. I have a unique appreciation for the needs of clients and effectively drive services and strategy to exceed expectations.

Prior to joining Avantage as the Data Practice Lead, I co-founded multiple IT consulting service companies and worked with multi-national organizations including Rogers Media, Nestle Purina and Toronto’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. I am an expert in data warehousing, business intelligence and business analytics, and have extensive familiarity with each phase in the dimensional lifecycle.

In addition to data warehousing and business intelligence, I am well-versed in strategy formulation, project management, business development and sales. I know how to quickly and efficiently transform a challenging project into a success.

An avid sportsman, I enjoy both following and participating in various team sports. I enjoy warm summer nights in cottage country watching the sunset over the horizon.
