I'm flattered and honored that you clicked into this page to learn more about who I am.
In my career, I've had the privilege of working with, consulting, and advising hundreds of founders, marketing, sales, and revenue leaders. I truly enjoy working in B2B, building, scaling, and coaching championship teams that are aligned to growing revenue.
My career story starts early on, but I'll spare you tales of being a paperboy or telemarketing long hours trying to sell carpet cleaning services. I launched and successfully exited my first startup, a multimedia search engine (Dustcloud Media) during the original 'dot-com boom.'
Since then, I've been constantly keeping my sword sharp by starting my own projects, working tours of duty "in house", consulting and advising others, and taking sabbaticals to learn and grow.
My last two roles were at Refine Labs, recently as the senior Enterprise Account Executive, where I crafted solutions to help B2B companies accelerate their revenue growth, and prior as a Senior Director of Demand Generation, where I managed the largest account book by ad spend, consulting clients and helping to scale their growth.
Prior to this role, I led the digital marketing team at ThoughtExchange, where I helped organizations lead challenging conversations about the things that matter.
Before joining ThoughtExchange, I served as Chief Marketing Officer at Blockmason, after a year working as a paid media and digital strategy consultant to SAP, the world's premier enterprise software company.
In 2012, I founded Gravytrain, a boutique content marketing and digital advertising agency, where I served as the Chief Executive Officer until 2017, when the company closed its doors.
From 2009 to 2014 as a "mature student," I completed a five-year Pharmaceutical Sciences degree at the University of British Columbia while managing my entrepreneurial ventures. During my time at UBC, I chaired the Alma Mater Society's Business and Administration Governance Board and served as a two-term member of the AMS Budget Committee.
I was also named the 2013 British Columbia Student Entrepreneur of the Year by Enactus Canada and was an active Phi Gamma Delta fraternity brother.
Prior to my studies, I spent five years working with Entrepreneurs' Organization as Emerging Programs Manager, where I played a key role in the rapid growth of the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards and the EO Accelerator program.
And, before that as I mentioned above, I founded an early startup that was acquired.
Outside of entrepreneurship, I actively contribute to the local community and have served multi-year terms as board member of Kitsilano Neighbourhood House and Finance Committee member of the Association of Neighbourhood Houses of BC.
I currently live in Victoria with my wife and children, where I stay well-caffeinated and enjoy long walks along the ocean and around our local lakes.
