Areas of Focus and Expertise
I am a Solution Architect and strategy enabler dedicated to creating innovative, viable and sustainable technology systems. A member of Avantage’s Strategic Initiatives team, I am a skilled systems architect who is well-versed in system building; fluent in multiple architectural and design approaches. Throughout my 16 years of professional experience, I have been responsible for creating automation systems that aid client operations and leading architectural endeavors accountable to the business being transformed.
During my brief time here at Avantage one of my largest accomplishments has been helping with the client approval of a major project that required an extensive application process. Prior to working with Avantage, I was a Solution Architect for The Adaptech Group as well as Save-On-Foods before that. Prior to my architecture experience, I was a Software Developer for Squirrel Systems. In this capacity, I was responsible for writing the POS auditing system, and effectively developed a POS security layer that operated across the province of Quebec. This layer is still in operation today.
I am recognized for having excellent relationships with both clients and colleagues. I have the skills to effectively lead diverse teams and strive to hit targets and ensure all client desires are achieved.
I am a strong proponent of continual learning and I passionately pursue knowledge across both my professional and personal life. I am an active member of my community, a mentor with the BCIT mentorship program, and enjoy reading, writing, and mountain climbing.
