My Credentials

I started my career in 1997 as a Software engineer. Since then, I have launched six tech companies, and sold one. In the last 25 years I have worked with hundreds of clients large and small from nearly all industry verticals including Government, Finance, Retail, E-commerce, Healthcare and Not-for-profit.

The highlights include:

In 2001, I led the development of one of Canada’s first online grocery delivery websites for Loblaw Companies Limited called Egrocer.
In 2005, I started my first software development company specializing in software for mobile terminals used in warehouses across Canada. Our customers included Motorola, Shoppers Drug Mart, Canadian Tire and Sobeys.
In 2009, I co-founded GSI Solutions which specializes in cloud based software solutions. Our roster of clients include Ebay, Kijiji, Microsoft, CIBC, The Toronto Star, OLG and the LCBO.
In 2011, I co-founded a digital ad agency called dial9. We worked with large brands such as The OLG, LCBO, Second Cup and H&R Block.
In 2016, I co-founded BIG Healthcare which is the healthcare industry's leading BI and bench marking platform for hospitals and long term care facilities.
