He then moved into industry as an energy analyst at a local utility and an Energy Consultant in an international energy consulting firm. Deciding to leave Toronto to gain experience in the U.S. he then took a leap back into an accounting role as a Financial Controller in Manhattan, New York for Tishman Speyer in the real estate sector. Lastly, he had the opportunity to get exposure to a tech based company operating in high growth mode. Leaving Manhattan he pursued an opportunity in a SaaS (Software as a Service) tech startup based in Silicon Valley (Redwood City, CA), that created financial reporting software for U.S. State & Local government. His background in these areas lets him bring both technical and management experience along with accounting expertise allowing him to be pro-active in both accounting and business consulting roles.
