A thirty year career that took me to the four corners of the world provides the backdrop for some powerful stories of leadership and empowerment. I have met with the Senior Vice President of Exploration for Russia’s largest energy company and have made presentations to Dick Cheney when he was the CEO at Halliburton.
My school years were spent in Dallas, Texas. I played football for the Austin College Kangaroos and graduated from this small liberal arts college in Sherman, Tx. with a BA in Economics. I continued my football career with the McMaster University Marauders while receiving my MBA from this fine university in Hamilton, Ontario. I spent the better part of my career working in Houston, Texas.
I am currently living in Vernon, British Columbia where I have continued my lifelong passion for sports and youth leadership. I coach football at a local Vernon high school, and I am the director for the youth leadership program for the 60 Rotary clubs in District 5060. I have served as the Santa Claus for a local home for disadvantaged youth. I am also an avid photographer having covered NBA, NFL, Division I college football, basketball and baseball and the 2011 Vanier Cup where my alma mater won the National Championship in Canadian University football.
