Executive Director, Marketing and Service Strategy, Innovation Canada, Government of Canada

As Executive Director of Marketing and Service Strategy for Innovation Canada, I’m working to help innovators and entrepreneurs save time answering a question they are often afraid to ask: “What can government do for me?” I bring to this challenge the experiences I’ve gained serving as Senior Director, Marketing for Innovation, Science, and Economic Development; Director of New Media for the Privy Council Office where I drove the adoption social media and digital solutions; as well as executive positions at Citizenship and Immigration and Service Canada where I learned a great deal about the importance of empathy and service design. I’m a father of three and an enthusiastic, but terrible, gardener.
