I joined the team at the Central Okanagan Foundation after many years with CIBC followed by a development role with local start-up, Refresh Financial. Proud to be a "dance-dad" to an active 13-year old daughter, and continue to love cycling the rail trail and Kelowna's ever expanding cycle routes. During festival season you may find me behind the drums for local performing artist Barb Samuel, Sista B and the Boyz.
