I have been in the safety field for 18 years. I was born in Toronto, Ontario and moved to Fort McMurray, Alberta in the early 1980's before oil became huge business.

I have been on large construction projects and done maintenance work in the oil and gas industry. I have also written many safety programs for companies, recreation centers, and towns within Alberta. I am very passionate for the career path that I have chosen for myself and I still love going to work everyday.

I enjoy being a mentor and teaching people all the wonderful opportunities a safety career can give you. There are many doors that open once you become a well seasoned safety professional because no matter where you go to work, safety is always the number one subject.
