Notable Achievements

2020 - Current

SIGA - Helping build better buildings and reducing the carbon foot print of our built environment

2012 - 2019

Pinwheel - import and sales of specialty building materials specific for passive house. Later started building prefabricated houses. Very innovative methods allowed us to install a house with 80% if the siding preinstalled, within one week.

2011 - 2012

Built large grid tied solar farms in Ontario, involved in building roughly 70MW of solar photovoltaics farms with some 200,000 solar panels, enough for about 84,000 homes

2000 - 2011

Audio engineer and tour management, toured across North America and some parts of the world. Some of the cool artists I got to mix were Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga and Snoop Dog. Biggest crowd to have mixed for: 92,000 people are the Rose Bowl in Pasadena CA (Kutless at Billy Graham Cruisade). Coolest location: right in front of the Sphinx and the Pyramids in Egypt with Tom Cochrane. The only time I got star struck: Marketing event with Seth Godin.
