If you had to describe what you do for work in a hashtag (#), what would that be?


Years of service at Chrysalis:

4 years

What do you like/love about Chrysalis and your role?

The people. Every person, partner and friend of Chrysalis make up an incredible community where we challenge, support and help each other to be our best.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working (i.e. what’s your perfect day):

I’m a sports enthusiast so when I’m not playing organized hockey I’m doing something else like golf, running, recreational softball or watching sports. I also like true crime or other suspenseful documentaries. My most enjoyment comes from spending time with family; my wife Michelle, daughter Brooke-Lyn and son Jacob.

What are your top strengths/talents?

I think I’m positive and optimistic, someone who brings hope. I also love to laugh and I think I have a pretty good sense of humour but I know not everyone agrees (i.e. puns and dad jokes), which makes it even funnier!

When are you at your best?

When I’m having meaningful conversations.

Who is a leader you look up to/why?

Marcus Buckingham. He inspires me, challenges my mindset and his lessons make me better.

Anything else you’d like to share?
