Who I Am

I had the opportunity to experience life in various regions across Eastern Canada, with the majority of my upbringing taking place in the Maritimes. In 2002, I made the move to Fredericton where I was fortunate enough to meet my wife several years later. We are proud parents of two exceptional daughters, who bring us constant joy with their intellect, humour, and personalities. Our family resides on a picturesque property at the edge of the city, surrounded by a few acres of serenity.

Experience

I embarked on my career in the industry in 2007, starting as an entry-level professional at a small agency. Over the next decade, I honed my skills and grew professionally as a Senior Full Stack Developer and Project Manager at a renowned boutique digital agency in Fredericton. My time at this esteemed organization spanned more than ten years, during which I made invaluable contributions to the company's success. However, I always strive for growth and new challenges, which led me to a role as the Manager of Implementation, Training, and Support at Kognitiv Spark, creators of mixed reality performance support tool, RemoteSpark. And, more recently, Technical Operations Manager at Retention.com

Curriculum Vitae

Volunteering

Since 2018, I have been dedicated to giving back to the community through my volunteer efforts with the Fredericton Youth Ringette Association and the Central Female Hockey Association. In this role, I have served as an on-ice and bench assistant coach, offering guidance and support to young athletes as they develop their skills and passion for sport. My commitment to the association was further solidified in 2021 when I was honoured to join the Board of Directors as the Director of Goaltender Development through to 2023. This role has allowed me to make an even greater impact on the lives of young athletes and help shape the future of the sport.

In the fall of 2023 I accepted a position as the Goaltending Coach and Assistant Coach for the CFHA U13AA Storm.

I am proud to have co-founded Capital City Ringette in 2021. This spring ringette development program offers young athletes the opportunity to further develop their skills and love for the sport through mentorship, coaching, and training. I have dedicated numerous hours each month to working with some of the region's most talented and driven young female athletes, helping them build their confidence and reach their full potential.

Writing

A few years ago, I made a conscious decision to embark on a personal challenge of writing "the novel that I've always wanted to write." This journey proved to be a transformative experience, filled with both excitement and humility. The process of crafting a narrative and bringing it to life on the page was incredibly fulfilling, and one that I will cherish for years to come.

Writing has since become a true passion of mine, and I am proud to have published several novels with more works in various stages of completion. This experience has taught me the importance of dedication and perseverance, and I am excited to continue to develop my craft and bring stories to life for others to enjoy.
