my story

and what I have learned and realized along the way

1995

Our Lady of Perpetual Help

Elementary School

That I was going to the NBA

That I was good with numbers

That I was always asking why

2005

Northern Secondary School

High School

That I was not going to the NBA

That I loved being creative

That these were going to be lifelong friends 

2010

Western University

Bachelor of Health Sciences

That giving less than 100% was a waste of time

That I was intrigued by the business of healthcare

That I wasn't quite done with school

2013

MaRS Innovation Incubator

OtoSim Inc. & Bedside Clinical Systems

That "real life" was around the corner

That you need more than just a great idea 

That very few people know how to use the word innovation

2014

University of Toronto

Master of Health Informatics

That the potential of digital health gets me excited

That Toronto is the best city in the world

That I was done with school (for the foreseeable future)

2015

KPMG Management Consulting

Manager, Digital Health

That any company's greatest asset will always be its people

That consulting is equal parts rewarding and frustrating

That there are plenty of healthcare problems yet to be solved

2019

Maple (getmaple.ca)

Director, Public Sector Business Development

That virtual care is essential to any modern health system

That public sector selling is a marathon, not a sprint

That the sky is the limit for this company

 
 

mantras

and words that resonate with me

When you feel tired, you should accelerate; that's when you start winning
I'd rather regret doing something than regret not doing something
Don't forget the happy thoughts

the thoughtful rant

Ideas and perspectives on a range of topics that both interest and inspire me
