Past President President

I am honoured to bring my experience as a business leader, nonprofit board member, athlete, coach and father to the Alberta Snowboard Association as your President.

About Me: I am a dad, a husband, relentlessly working to make the world a better place and the SMB Business Head for California based Smart Energy Water, a member of the Board of Cleantek, a member of the advisory board for PillarFour Capital, and a former member of the Boards for the Fifth Quarter Association and River Valley School.

Relevant Experience: A business leader and builder, I have worked in ecommerce technology, software, strategic operations consulting, sustainable energy development, smart energy, smart cities, energy marketing and custom foods businesses, so I have worked with many communities! I am an alumni of the University of Calgary where I competed for the University of Calgary Dinos football program as a four year starter, playing in two national championship games and winning the Vanier Cup in 1995. I played for the Calgary Stampeders and the BC Lions of the CFL, so I get high performance sport … I am a certified professional coach for the sport of football and a Level 3 official for snowboarding, showing I love building athletes through experiences.

My Inspiration: The father of two winter sport athletes (snowboarding and mogul skiing) I have built a passion for the sports that define Canada and are the most amazing legacy of the ’88 games.
