My passion is creating innovative solutions that solve problems companies face every day, and problems they don’t even realize they have.

An I.T. solutions and services company, focused in healthcare, energy, government and financial services. Accreon was created as a merger of Evention Technologies and two other local I.T. consulting practices, with a vision of creating an I.T. services company that could take on large projects with a broader and deeper expertise.
Over the following 3 years, I helped grow the business to over 140 employees, start our U.S.-based operations (Boston, MA), and incubate a new cloud-based product platform and company (iTacit).
Accreon was acquired by a U.S.-based private equity firm and continues to grow its Canadian and U.S. operations as a high-quality healthcare I.T. practice.

I am an avid guitar player, motorcyclist, and lover of competitive motorsports. I enjoy exploring new places, camping and hiking with my wife and children.
My greatest passions are writing, recording and performing music. I have played in rock and country bands since high school. I have also written, recorded and produced some of my own music.
I also have a passion for cool engineering and design – especially cars, trucks and motorcycles – and I love to build things. In 2004, I built a custom show truck with the intent of building something “as good as anything by the pros on the West Coast”. The truck went on to win Best in Class in regional and national events, was featured in Truckin’, the world’s leading truck magazine, and was voted one of the 10 Best Trucks in North America in 2011.
