I have 27 years experience as a professional engineer and project manager and have developed technical and business innovations for clients ranging from new business start-ups to large corporations and executive teams. I’ve helped companies save millions by designing and building projects with budgets spanning from $250,000 to $100 million.

My experience includes optimizing payment processing, manufacturing, inventory, distribution and sales processes for a broad range of market sectors including: agriculture, pharmaceuticals, natural resources, automobile manufacturing, construction, renewable energy and retail.

I’ve developed customized cloud based solutions to streamline and significantly reduce the engineering design time for complex infrastructure projects, which reduces the time to resolve engineering problems in retail distribution. As well, I’ve have developed a financial platform to tokenize assets in order to decrease the time, cost and work associated with traditional asset transfer and settlement.

I enjoy working with companies that want transformative change. I have a sincere passion to empower my clients to achieve measurable, sustainable improvements to their products and services, business processes and the technology that supports them.
