I am a 36-year-old family man with three children under 10 and an amazing partner in life. After graduating from my Electrical Engineering Technologist program, I began my career with BC Hydro in Cranbrook.
Our family moved to Kamloops three years ago to pursue a distribution design management opportunity and we liked the idea of living in Kamloops. It was a temporary job and, luckily, the opportunity to become the Interior Express Connect Manager out of Kamloops came up and that is what I do now.
I manage a portion of the department that gets work orders to the crew to power your new home or upgrade the electrical service to an older one, and a lot more that I won't go into detail about. I believe my experience at BC Hydro translates directly to municipal politics. I have to run a budget, respect the ratepayers, manage employees, collaborate between various departments plus external contractors, and deliver excellent customer service while doing so.
I would bring integrity and unbiased representation to council, plus a commitment to listen to the people and all sides of issues. My goal as a councillor would be to focus on fostering a collaborative environment at the table to move forward on issues that matter to the people for the greater good. Also, I am a realist — there are lots of improvements I would like to see, but we need to find ways to afford them first.
