Communications & Digital Technology Services

I enable other businesses through my communications and IT services which provides information technology (IT), marketing, creative, and sport coaching services towards a vision of connecting people and information on the web.

I’ve worked on more than 100 successful Information and Communications Technology (ICT) projects, online services, and websites with partnerships across Ontario and Canada since starting in the IT industry in 2000.

For four of those projects, I was in IT teams that accomplished the following “firsts”:

  • ­First government service to have a money-back service guarantee in North America reducing a 20 weeks service turnaround time to 15 days guaranteed. The service combines 3 levels of government, has an 85% satisfaction rate, and makes life easier for parents to register their babies.
  • First government inter-jurisdictional messaging gateway in Canada.
  • First data center in the world to receive Uptime Institute’s Tier 4 certification for operational sustainability. The award winning data centre is the first of its kind in North America to receive both Uptime Tier IV (for operational sustainability) and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification and involved the migration of 400 applications and 829 servers.
  • First integration of portal, security public key infrastructure, and web services within the Ontario government.

I work for the Government of Ontario and volunteer with various organizations to bring a diversity of skills including communications & marketing planning, IT infrastructure & service management, security, web standards & accessibility, and systems analysis across technology platforms including Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, and open source software.
