"Making a difference, one person/project at a time" – This is my personal mission statement that guides me through my life.

My journey began with a Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Toronto in 1992, leading me through pivotal roles in the consumer and automotive industries. I've been privileged to contribute to industry leaders like Procter & Gamble and Multimatic Inc., where I honed my values of being positive, considerate, and knowledgeable, and learned the importance of understanding customer needs and the strength of technology.

Lake Harbour stands as a testament to these experiences, offering comprehensive engineering services that span from mechanical to electro-mechanical design, backed by a global supplier base for manufacturing solutions.
