Full bio
An Entrepreneurial Business and Technology executive bringing Creativity with practicality, vision with experience. The best of both worlds.
 
Took a 12-18 month sabbatical in 1999 to investigate Web 2.0, SaaS and Cloud Computing concepts etc (as they are known now), trying to understanding how they benefit SME's. Never Stopped.
 
This lead to me to:
- Working with several start-up’s involved in various sectors
- Advising SME clients in diverse industries with recommendations, installation, user training, and system/network design.
- Building a successful practice through referrals from satisfied clients.
 
Now working on new ventures in Cloud Computing/SaaS Sector and Clean (Green) Tech Sector. Plus seeking opportunities in Canada.
