In September 2012, after accumulating over 25 years of industry experience, I decided to offer services as an independent consultant in the fields of building envelope engineering, science, design and software. During my career I worked for the largest suppliers of architectural metal and glass in Canada in project and product engineering, technical support and engineering management functions. This allowed me to develop an expert knowledge of all the offerings competing in the North American market. I am an associate member of the Canadian Standards Association A440 Windows and A500 Building Guards Committees.
