I have a background in engineering, management consulting, and communications. I was a founder of Western Management Consultants and Go Direct Marketing, contributed to the founding of the Vancouver Enterprise Forum and Canadian Business for Social Responsibility, and facilitated the creation of Tourism Vancouver.
My work has involved creating new enterprises, managing companies out of difficulty, and redirecting businesses, community organizations, and public bodies. I have worked with all of the City of Vancouver departments, the Vancouver Park Board, the Pacific National Exhibition and many other public, business, and community organizations facilitating conversation around their role and contribution.
I represent the interests of the Arts and Culture Forum of the Downtown Vancouver Association, I am on the Board of the Community Arts Council of Vancouver, and support the idea of a Downtown Eastside Community Arts Network.
