Who am I? What do I do?
Professionally, I am a marketer, educator, writer, speaker, and entrepreneur from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. On a more personal level, I am a goofy guy who is happiest when living on my own terms and exploring esoteric or controversial subjects.
What do I think about?
I believe that the information we encounter and process throughout our lives is largely responsible for the people we become. As a result, I am fascinated by things like marketing, education, storytelling, the spreading of ideas, and epistemology (a fancy word for the philosophy of knowledge).
In many ways, knowledge transfer is my life’s work:
- I am a marketing consultant with experience in setting up and operating entire marketing departments from scratch;
- My spare time is spent studying the impact of experiential learning programs at the DeGroote School of Business (McMaster University);
- As an accomplished student leader, I have enjoyed many opportunities to speak and write about youth leadership.
