About

Can you imagine a better world than where everyone lived their strengths and unique vision, where people were excited to wake up and start the day? That's the kind of world I hope to help create.

This website is dedicated to all the people I've met who've confided to me how much they hate, and feel trapped in, their jobs. In dedicating my life to my passions—life improvement, teaching, technology, and innovation—I hope to lead by example to show that there are alternatives and to inspire others to discover and follow their dreams.

You are welcome to join me on this journey and comment pointing out landmarks along the way. We accomplish much more together than alone and so I appreciate you reading my posts and any insights you choose to share.



Life Improvement

Karate: I'm currently an orange belt in Goju Ryu karate and an orange belt in Weapons (Kobudo and Escrima are great fun!). Of course, I wouldn't be me unless I also aimed to coach, motivate, and inspire my training mates as we learn together.


Education/Teaching

2017-Feb-01: I've officially started a new degree: Athabasca's Bachelor of Science Major in Computer Information Systems (BSc CIS). The last time I was in school for computer programming was in 1996; I'm looking forward to seeing what's changed.

Teaching continues to be a passion whether through video tutorials (e.g., 30+ video course about Google Drive), webinars (five years' guest speaking at Conestoga College), or in person (meeting my life goal of teaching as a College Professor, e.g., Educational Planning Seminar at Humber College - 3 sections/92 students - Fall 2013). 

It's been awhile since I've formerly taken a course as a student and I'm starting to feel that itch again. 


Innovation

One of my greatest accomplishments was helping create a provincial certification model for Career Development Practitioners in Ontario, Canada and then working with the CDPCBO to help them implement/market it. As it was a five year initiative, it's hard to imagine how to personally top that, but I remain open to ideas.
