T: 1.905.232.7300

I am an energy sector professional with over a decade of experience, spanning government, electric utilities and management consulting.

At METSCO, I lead client engagements in the areas of asset management and operations strategy consulting, Smart Grid technologies integration, productivity and performance measurement, and regulatory filing support.

My favourite projects are those that integrate deep quantitative insights with modern organizational management theory, to yield tangible and sustainable impact.

To help our utility clients unlock the latent sources of value, and take full advantage of their scale to remain the the technological progress conduits for decades to come.

At the age of 12 I took up the sport fencing – and it has been a constant in my life ever since. While my competitive days I now behind me, I am engaged in the sport as one of only 5 Canadian international Grand Prix circuit referees, and a member of the Board of Directors of Fencing Canada.

Aside from fencing, I enjoy reading fiction and learning about the drivers of shot-term fluctuations in financial markets.
