Hey! So, quick about me blurb:
I grew up on a farm in Taber, Alberta with one younger brother (he now runs a wine tour company in Toronto) and two amazing parents (they now live in Lethbridge). In November 2010 my wife, Danielle, and I got married on a beach in Cabo. My folks taught me that actions have consequences (I still chose to learn the hard way), showed me first-hand the hard work involved in running businesses, and introduced me to my favourite quote (from Zig Ziglar):
“If you help enough other people get what they want, you will get what you want.“
Call it the golden rule, karma, doing the right thing, the long game, or whatever else you want but I live to give before I receive.
I founded Alberta's #1 coworking community, a nationwide security & automation company, and an IoT fleet management service.
I founded 100 Men Who Give A Damn in Calgary. Our mission is to build an army of men who give a damn about the community and each other.
I serve as a director of AWE, founder of GenYYC & the Calgary Coworking Alliance as well as a member of the Calgary Stampede Grandstand Committee.
I'm proud to mentor with ATB X, Startup Calgary, as well as directly with various Alberta based startups and small businesses.
