Career Experience

After joining the utility and having lived through the 80's recession where many jobs were cut, i began to take night school courses in the Civil/Structural program with a view to expanding my career horizons. I have been a Draftsman, Surveyor, Planner, a Planning workleader and Planning Manager. My current title is Manager: Engineering Support Services where I manage three departments with a total of 40 technical and clerical employees responsible for GIS mapping of all gas assets and providing BC One Call responses to requesting parties through the BC One Call process.

Why I Became A Technology Professional

  • When I began my career with the gas utillity in 1976 there were few credentials necessary for your career to progress. Experience alone would carry you through. In today's world certification validates and documents your ability to learn and perform.

Career Highlights

  • Introduction of GIS mapping to the gas utility
  • Assisting in the development of a commercially available software product in a joint venture with GE.
  • Obtaining C.Tech designation and being recognized with the ASTTBC Professional Achievement Award in 2012
  • Being selected from a Union position to a key managing role
  • Being in a position to positively affect the careers of so many people

Professional & Community Activities

  • I have had the good fortune to have been involved with several major technology implementations and business process redesigns. I am now in a position to help people fill technical positions and develop their careers. I believe a heathly company is the byproduct of successful and engaged employees.
