Career Experience

Water and wastewater treatment projects throughout BC, Western Canada and locations around the world have kept me pretty busy. The projects always have unique challenges so the creative juices are always flowing. Advances in design technology and treatment technology mean my skill set is always growing.

Why I Became A Technology Professional

  • Growing up on an orchard in the Okanagan, there were always things to build and to repair. Some projects were simple while others required considerable thought, ingenuity and creativity. I enjoyed this process and turned it into a career.
