I have been an Entrepreneur and a Startup evangelist for many years. Currently I am a co-founder of Zora Inc. I was the first Executive Director of Volta, a Halifax startup house and a Co-Founder and former CEO of TitanFile, a secure document-sharing and collaboration software company based in Halifax and Waterloo, Ont.

Previously, I was the owner of Mojo Labs Co. and I also brought DemoCamp to Halifax from Toronto to provide a forum that allows young companies from around Atlantic Canada to present their products and get direct feedback from their peers. I am also a Policy Adviser to the Dalhousie University Faculty of Computer Science and the Entrepreneur in Residence at the Centre for Entrepreneurship Education and Development.

I was named one of the 20 winners of the 2012 FuEL Awards, which recognize Canada’s Future Entrepreneurial Leaders. TitanFile under my leadership was named: runner-up in the 2012 Alpha Exchange Innovation Campaign Live Pitch-Off Competition; one of the Top 25 Canadian Up and Coming ICT companies by the Branham300; a finalist for the 2012 Manning Innovation Award; winner of the Canada-U.S. Innovation Award; and a Cloudy Award in the category of People’s Choice: Best Cloud Newcomer, presented at SXSW.
