He has been a presenter during numerous conferences and gatherings covering various environmental subjects and has established himself as a thought-leader and innovator within the development, implementation and operation of complex environmental management plans, programs and policies (e.g. strategic plans, standard operating procedures, environmental health and safety plans, financial and implementation plans) for such clients as the University of BC, Metro Vancouver, City of Vancouver, Capital Region and the Cayman Islands Government.

He has also developed customized reporting frameworks as well as working with established frameworks such as the ISO 14000 group of standards and the UN SDGs and has utilized GHG emission models such as US EPA WARM and the University of Waterloo’s IWM model to assess climate change impacts.


He has worked for over twenty-five years as a Registered Professional Engineer and planner locally, nationally and internationally.

This experience provides him with a broad knowledge of the engineering, environmental and leadership areas allowing him to see the big picture to ensure priorities are always in mind.  He has personally developed hundreds of strategies, policies and programs of which he has provided what is needed to implement and operate them.

Executive – Local and Global Leadership

Having significant experience in leadership and operations ensures that all decision-making includes consideration of the impacts to front-line workers, stakeholders and customers.  Developing interdisciplinary strategic and implementation plans cross-departmentally while having to directly supervise their implementation on the ground and measure their performance has afforded him a special kind of experience rarely found. This experience can optimize program efficiencies while drawing out the inspirational energy of the workers involved with its implementation and operation.

In addition to working internationally for an extended time in a senior leadership position developing national strategic plans and leading operations, he has also enrolled in the Royal Roads Masters of Global Leadership program to refine these skills further and contribute to international leadership community. These additional skills are offered to our clients and/or organizations that work locally and/or globally.
