I launched the junior program at Kelowna Crows and established the TORA rugby society.

I thrive on finding straightforward, practical solutions to IT issues and am passionate about helping people maximize their use of technology.When I'm not immersed in IT work, you'll often find me involved in the rugby community. Volunteering is a significant part of my life, and Turtle Bay IT Services embodies this commitment by providing no-cost IT support to non-profits in Lake Country. It's incredibly fulfilling to know that I'm not just building a business but also making a meaningful impact in my community.
