What do you enjoy most about this industry?
I have always had an interest in oil & gas and construction thanks to my Dad who dedicated “decades” to these industries. Seeing and being a part of what we can build and accomplish as a team inspires me to be the best I can be. Working with and supporting our field employees is what I enjoy most.
What or who inspires you?
Family. I come from a close-knit family, with only my immediate family living in Canada. They’re real and honest, and we know we can always fall back on each other at the end of the day. Starting my own family and seeing my little guy’s smile every day is the most fulfilling part of life and makes me want to be the best I can be.
What is your favourite restaurant in Edmonton?
Biera. It has great food and atmosphere.
Why did you choose this career?
After high school, the first career opportunity I had was with a major oil & gas shutdown/maintenance company. Having spent some time on petro-chemical facilities and visiting our own construction sites has always been fascinating.
