I studied at NAIT and I am a Journeyman Machinist by trade.

History in the industry and as a WCW member

I have worked in the HDPE industry for almost 10 years; this is the second year I have spent as an outside sales rep for the company.

Typical day

As a sales rep, I spend a lot of time on the road meeting with established clients in both Alberta and Saskatchewan and looking for potential clients and following up on leads.

Job Satisfaction

I enjoy meeting people and establishing relationships with clients and potential clients, you never know when you will meet someone that you can provide product for. Networking is a huge part of the business and can provide limitless possibilities.

Main challenges

It is always challenging to find and establish a new business, Everyone wants the best product and the best price and there are always lots of options – the real work comes in assisting the client and through a high level of product knowledge and understanding showing them that your product is the best product for them.


Always think positively, you and only you can control your actions, always strive to be the best version of you at all times, give a 100% and enjoy what you do; but remember that work is not everything and that it is important to balance all areas of your life equally.

Time away from work

Time away from work is spent working out, being as active as I can be –skiing, soccer and spending time with family and friends.
