What do you do at NDSC?
I’m a Safety Consultant for NDSC and responsible for training various safety topics. I come from a safety management background in fields ranging from heavy civil/technical construction, industrial electrical construction, drilling and oil and gas.
Why is NDSC’s mission to prevent injuries and save lives important to you?
The NDSC’s mission is important to me because I feel people generally want to work safely and will do what they feel is right within the context of their knowledge and experience; so, if we can give them the knowledge to live and work more safely through value-added training and experiences, we can make a lasting difference in their lives.
What are your hobbies?
Biking, reading, curating my music collection, discovering new breweries and movie nights with my family.

I’m a cellist and have played in symphonies, orchestras and ensembles, although I’m a little out of practice!

New Zealand with my wife to visit Hobbiton and have an ale at The Green Dragon.
