My Experience



As the past president of the University of Victoria’s Vancouver Island Technology Park and the Marine Technology Centre, I was accountable for the vision, master planning, development, and day to day management of 50 acres of land and over 240,000 sq ft of 2 specialized high tech spaces. Recognized as a pioneer of the Victoria technology community, I was instrumental towards establishing a ‘critical mass’ of technology based companies that create $358M in annual economic impact in Greater Victoria.

With over 18 year’s executive experience in North America’s high technology sector, I have long been recognized for building relationships with industry, academia, government and media. I have achieved significant success in public relations campaigns and economic development initiatives.
