    Manager, Municipal Bridges

    • I have always been interested in the construction of bridges in remote locations and developing solutions with the contractors that build them. I've been privileged to lead projects in remote sections of western and northern Canada.
    • Outside of work, I enjoy being a father to three young girls and for exercise I love running ultra-marathons. Together, my time spent on those activities usually more than fill the remaining hours of my off-days.
