I am a Chartered Professional Accountant, Chartered Accountant based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada with over seven years of experience in the accounting field. My career began in financial reporting and the research & interpretation of accounting standards. From there I have shifted my focus to data intelligence, financial analysis, and information systems.
Outside of work my interests include creative pursuits such as photography, electronics, and web design. I also enjoy getting outdoors for some hiking, trail running, or cycling.
I like to indulge my curiosity. I savour new experiences, learning new skills, making discoveries, and getting totally lost once and a while.
Whether physical or virtual, I find great satisfaction in making things. It gives me opportunities to exercise my creativity, solve interesting problems, and learn new skills.
I enjoy finding new solutions to problems, simpler methods of accomplishing objectives, and better ways to convey information. I like to advance the status quo.
Accounting isn't just about numbers, it's about clearly explaining how and why those numbers matter. I take numbers, provide them with meaning, and then determine what actions should be taken.
In addition to experience using standard desktop software, I also have experience in web and database administration. Using a broad tool set allows me to build scalable and efficient reporting solutions.
Financial information doesn't need to be ugly and / or unintelligible. In all my work I try to convey information in a way that's accurate, understandable, and easy on the eyes.
