Please check out my Professional Profile here. This is where you can see all the other content I've written.

I moved from Saskatoon to Edmonton in 1997 for an education and what I thought would be a quick pit stop on route to a life golfing in Kelowna. Priorities changed when I met my beautiful wife of 16 years, and proceeded to have 2 incredible children.

What also changed is my desire to succeed in the business world. I now have over 13 years in the very dynamic industry of outside sales. I have learned both in my personal and professional life that honesty, integrity, and patience are extremely important to have sustained success. I am a consultant who is focused primarily on making my clients job as painless as possible by helping them find solutions that best fits their organization.

I am now the Business Development Manager for Western Canada with Concept Controls with almost 5 years experience in the Safety Instrumentation industry, specializing in gas detection and Industrial Hygiene solutions. I have trained on many leading manufacturers such as Honeywell, MSA, Blackline, 3M, SKC, Rae Systems, RKI, and more. I am a member of the AIHA with strong relationships with many professionals within the group.
