I believe that Vancouver can become a global center for technology excellence. Because of that, my goal is to do everything I can to contribute to that community, including learning how to build technology companies, developing our technology community, and working with the greater non-tech community to ensure that the entire fabric of the community is strong and functional.

I am pleased to let everybody know that effective January 4, 2005, I will begin working with Business Objects in their Enterprise Sales group. Thanks to everybody for the leads, contacts, and suggestions. I’m totally excited about starting with these guys for the beginning of the year. Business Objects not only leads globally in the Business Intelligence software business but is very active socially and is well-respected as one of the best companies in Vancouver. I’m looking forward to contributing to their continued growth as well as learning from the people who work there.
