What do you love most about working at Rimrock & how long have you been here?
I joined Rimrock in February 2015. What I love most about working here is working with great people who are both highly intelligent and motivated. There’s definitely an entrepreneurial spirit within Rimrock that is quite energizing. What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most? What is the number one challenge you face in your role?
What I enjoy the most is getting to know our clients and understanding their businesses. I’m always learning something new with each engagement. The biggest challenge I face is having to think on my feet and change course when things don’t go according to plan during an engagement. This does go part in parcel with how we help our clients and overcoming these challenges leads to greater successes.
Where is the best place you’ve travelled to and why?
The best place I’ve travelled to is Hawaii for my honeymoon. Hawaii is just a beautiful, interesting place and it was great to spend some quality time with my wife. What TV shows/music/apps are you currently obsessed with right now?
I’m not the biggest TV guy but I absolutely cannot miss Raptor games leading up to the playoffs. I’m also a Bourdain fan so I’ll sit down and watch Parts Unknown whenever I catch it. Music wise, I’ve lately found myself listening to a lot of 70’s funk mixed in with some Disney to appease my infant daughter. I also really enjoy listening to the ‘Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe’ podcast because it’s entertaining to listen to people who seem much smarter than I am.
If you could have a drink with anyone (fictional, alive, dead, famous, non-famous) who would it be and why?
I’d honestly love to have a drink with my dad who passed away just about 10 years ago. It would be great just to have a chat with him again.
What do you like doing in your spare time? Do you have any hobbies?
I’m a big sports nut so I enjoy playing various sports. I’m also a big fan of all of the Toronto sports teams and the Buffalo Bills, so I’m sad most of the time!
