My Business/Community Bio:

I am currently a partner and Managing Director of ScaleUP Ventures and a board member the BC Discovery Fund.

I am a 35 year veteran of the Canadian tech space, having initially worked as a mobile products designer engineer for Motorola in their wireless data division, developing 1st generation public network mobile computing devices in the 1980s. In the 1990s I founded and ran 2 wireless tech companies, PCS Wireless (micro-cells) and Intrinsyc Software (IoT), which raised more than $200M and employed over 500 people globally. Starting in the late 1990s I also invested my efforts to help build a stronger west coast tech economy, becoming an advisor to the BC Government and the TSX Venture Exchange, as well as helping grow industry organizations such as the Vancouver Enterprise Forum, Acetech - the Academy of Tech CEOs, WinBC, DigiBC, and Wavefront - a government funded wireless tech accelerator, while also helping found the Scientist in Residence Program for Vancouver elementary schools - to give children early exposure to science and scientists. In the mid 2000s I helped build BC Advantage Funds as a board member and investment committee member, and advised Quorum Fund in Toronto and Bessemer Venture Partners in NYC on tech transactions. In the later 2000s I was CEO of a mobile app analytics company, Mobidia, which was sold to App Annie in 2015.

I have been with my spouse Cheryl for the past 37 years and together we have 3 grown children, Perry, Colin & Evan, plus 2 Burmese cats.
