My Work

I am a life long learner and enjoy problem solving either for work or just for fun. My career started in the IT department doing Network Adminstration and I moved through Technical Sales and eventually ended up in Product Management. When the chance to learn how to code was available, I jumped at the chance to learn the one thing I felt I had been missing for so long.

Spartan Racing

Spartan and OCR races

I recently started running in Spartan races, because, why not? Miles and miles of hilly terrain with obstacles that feel like they were designed to break you. It's been a fun way to get back in shape and set a fitness goal. By the end of 2018 I completeed my first Spartan Trifecta (a Sprint, Super and Beast race of 7, 14 and 21km length). Aroo!

I once built a couch from scratch

I like to solve problems, so when I moved into my new house and the basement stairs weren't big enough for a larger couch, I built one. From learning wood work to build the frame, upholstery to afix the webbing, all the way to learning to sew for the cushions as well. It took a while, but the result was great :)

I Rebuilt a Motorcycle

I used to own a GSXR 600 race bike, I had way too much fun on it. One day while riding on the "twisties", my inherant love of going fast was cut short by my lack of skill. I was unlucky enough to hit a little gravel on a sharp turn, and lucky enough to walk away from an insurance write off of my bike, with a sprained thumb. You win some you lose some. What do you do with a wrecked bike? You rebuild it. Thankfully the engine and frame were good, so I didn't have to get my hands too dirty. I got two more seasons out of it before I decided to quit while I was ahead. Now I get around on four wheels.

I Used to be a Bartender

In a previous life I used to bartend downtown in Montreal, it turns out that not only is it a lot of fun, but talking to all kinds of people about all kinds of subjects helped a lot in learning how to best understand peoples problems when it came to product management. I also do a fair amount of public speaking on Digital Signage and Programmatic, and being able to talk to complete strangers like we're old friends just makes things easier.
