I'm a seasoned entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience in software engineering and start-up technology ventures. My latest start-up, Equals6 , is the professional social network for students. Equals6 connects students with the three things they need most; funding, career opportunities and mentoring.
Prior to co-founding Equals6 I was CEO and CTO at Diaphonics, a voice biometric technology company. I previously served as an officer in the Royal Canadian Navy and occupied various technical and operational roles, primarily in the area of combat control systems. I hold a (website hidden). from McMaster University, a (website hidden). in acoustics from Royal Roads Military College and a MBA from Saint Mary’s University. I am also a Certified Information Systems Security Professional, a Certified Information Systems Auditor and is certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT. I've competed in a number of marathons and triathlons including Ironman Canada and Ironman Florida.
I enjoy meeting and staying with Airbnb hosts and much prefer the opportunity to do so in the cities where I travel on business rather then stay at hotels.
