Are you a Developer/Designer/Non-Technical Entrepreneur/Mentor/Support Services member?

On the Member Council at North Forge Fabrication Lab, I'm responsible for Community Outreach. So, I create opportunities for individuals, companies, associations, colleges, universities, governments and other organizations to discover the potential for innovation and entrepreneurship at the North Forge Fabrication Lab, and how that could benefit them.

What is your background/skill sets? (Ex. JavaScript, Sales, Photoshop)

For years, I've been involved in public relations. But, I've enjoyed developing small business plans, and participating in corporate strategic planning and execution, too. Some of those activities involved designing logos and trade marks, and helping to organize advertising campaigns for small and large companies. Also, while chairing a community association, I served on an advisory committee to an Ontario Minister of Housing, for the purpose of re-writing the Ontario Rental Housing Act, and one appointment as an advisor to an Ontario Minister of Municipal Affairs to re-write sections of the Ontario Property Standards Legislation.

In a startup, what role best suits you?

Developing a business plan and marketing strategy, including branding, promotional material and public relations strategies.

Are you working on any projects or startups currently? If so, give us a quick rundown!

Three primary activities. First, I enjoy advancing the goals of the Manitoba Electric Vehicle Association (MEVA). Second, since it first opened as AssentWorks, I have been, and continue to be, passionately helping to grow a community of innovators at the North Forge Fabrication Lab. Third, when I have the time, I like to help ramp up success in the North Forge Meetup community, "one startup at a time!"

What do you want out of North Forge Meetups?

A blazing business cosmos starring successful Manitoba product innovators and entrepreneurs!


President of the Manitoba Electric Vehicle Association, Past-Chairman of the North Forge Fabrication Lab (AssentWorks) Member Council, and ardent North Forge Meetup supporter!
