I like reading, technology, friends, my dog, good customer service, learning how to write well, process improvement, canoeing, great digital signage, beer, picnic tables, websites without scroll jacking, patio lanterns, and my girlfriend.
Emma, if you're reading this, not necessarily in that order.
I work at Rise Vision as a Team Leader and Project Manager for our amazing Creative Services team. The team creates custom digital signage content for Fortune 1000, higher ed and SMBs. When we're not creating custom content we build products for the larger Rise Vision user base. Before this role I worked in Marketing and did a brief stint as a Support Representative.
Prior to Rise Vision I worked as a Digital Marketer at Community, an Event Coordinator for Comeback Season Kids (since closed), a Ski Coach at Craigleith Ski Club, an Ice Cream Server at Miss Nelles, and I started a clothing brand.
I attended high school at Blyth Academy and then went east, to Halifax, where I attended Dalhousie University. I was in the Bachelor of Commerce program and took courses in Marketing, Logistics, Finance, Accounting and Statistics. Two months into my fourth year of university I dropped out and have not yet finished my degree.
Outside of university I've taken courses in Web Development, Search Engine Optimization, Product Management, Sales, Computer Hardware, Scrum and Cooking.
