Director, Isotopes & Site Energy Development
Bruce Power

    I was born and raised in Port Elgin, Ontario (20 minutes from Bruce Power). I hold a Bachelors of Business Administration from Wilfrid Laurier University and a Masters of Industrial Relations from Queen's University.

    After school and prior to Bruce Power I worked in a few different industries; Telecom (TELUS), Pharmaceuticals (McKesson Canada) and Mining (Independent Researcher).

    I joined Bruce Power in 2017 (came home) and have held multiple roles; Reporting Analyst and then Cost Lead on MCR6, Financial Analyst supporting Equipment Performance Division, Program Manager of Cost on MCR6 and then my current role Director, Isotopes & Site Energy Development.
    I have been in my current role since the end of 2020; supporting three key areas for Bruce Power: (1) Cobalt-60 production, (2) Lutetium-177 production and (3) Project 2030. It has been a privilege to work on these programs and we have experienced some significant accomplishments; first commercial reactor to produce Lutetium-177 and a new net site peak capability of 6,550MW.

    I am an avid golfer (9.2 cap but looking to drop two strokes this summer) and I love playing video games.

    I owe any career success to my supportive wife Megan and I am a proud father of two; Ellis (5) and Wilson (2).
