I previously worked at the largest local distribution company in Canada to deliver asset management solutions, including development of risk-based asset management analytics solutions, introduction and integration of automation strategies to introduce organizational efficiencies, development of long-term investment plans and regulatory documents and participation as part of regulatory hearings. As Director of Asset Management & Analytics at METSCO, I lead the major asset management analytics solutions that allow utilities to make the right decisions to the right assets at the right time, as well as derive quantitative business cases to defend their investment strategies.  I am a Professional Engineer in the Province of Ontario and a Member of the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES).

To develop solutions for new problems and challenges facing the industry, such that asset management continues to be innovated upon.

I have spent a major portion of my life creating and editing photos and videos. Photographs are the universal language of our era. Everyone has hundreds to thousands in their pockets. Images don’t age or warp. I shoot because I want to show people the best things about themselves and to show the world in a different way that makes people think deeper.
