My Contact Information
Date I joined SET-BC
August 20, 2018
After graduating from UBC I had the opportunity to teach at Pacific Academy in Surrey for the better part of a decade. I taught drama and media in the high school. I helped produce many plays, musicals and videos while teaching there. I loved collaborating with students and helping to push students to perform at their best. I enjoyed walking people through the process of creation. I always found it important to embrace the challenges of the process instead of worrying about the finished product. At least that’s what I told myself…I always ended up worrying about the finished product!
I ventured into some uncharted territory in the world of business after teaching at Pacific Academy. I helped run a mobile technology company that focused on software for property management. The flexibility of that job allowed me to manage a small video production business where I produced educational videos for BC Women’s Hospital and a number of educational institutions. I also had the chance to do a little acting in a few commercials. It’s important when watching those commercials that you don’t blink or you might miss me.
These past experiences led me to finding SET-BC where I hope to put my varied skills to good use. I think technology can be a great tool to ignite students into learning new things in exciting and fun ways.
In the summer I find myself on the tennis court a lot. If you’re in Vancouver and you’re looking to play, then let me know. My son and I get out on the court fairly regularly. He’s quickly catching up to me in his skill level and so soon he’ll be beating me. I’m not sure how I feel about that. In the winter I’ll be snowboarding if there is fresh powder. I like to be the first on the hill. So if you’re heading to Whistler, then I’ll meet you in line around 5:45 a.m. I’m currently obsessed with my new ebike. I call it ‘the poor man’s Tesla’. Every hill is a downhill on my new bike. My wife and I have enjoyed exploring parts of the city that we’d never seen before on our ebikes.
