My career in the parks and playground industry started in 1989 where I evolved to handling the sales of all plastic components for the majority of primary manufacturers in North America. I then turned my efforts to launching Recreation Playsystems in 2000, where I spent a large part of my career. In 2012 I launched Openspace; it is where I invest my passions, time and efforts, while leveraging my knowledge and skills to provide improved outdoor play to people and communities across Ontario.
With nearly three decades working in sales and management, I have a broad range of experience. In 2013, After 5 years as a GM of a multi-national company I finally made my move to Openspace where I function in a similar capacity, and assists the team and working with partners to ensure quality and results.
A graduate of Wilfred Laurier University in 2015 I have been a part of the Openspace team since. An OPA playground Practitioner with AODA, I enjoy working with customers to make their park visions a reality, while covering details to ensure the best possible experience through exceptional pre to post sales services.
An OPA playground and OPA accessibility practitioner, I studied Marketing and have been working within the industry for almost a decade. I joined Openspace in 2012 where I dedicate myself to applying creative solutions to help bring play to communities all across Ontario.
