Chief Minion (CEO)
As an entrepreneur for the past 10 years, I’ve explored building businesses while still an employee and gone fully independent with my own communications and event planning business and now as the Founder of Spero Careers Canada in tech development.
Over the past 25 years, I’ve been building on skills gained in industries such as food and retail services, healthcare office management, volunteer management, corporate communications, entrepreneurship and tech development support services and as an instructor for medical office management
My son was diagnosed as autistic 16 years ago and is now a successful college student working towards a career in welding and fabrication. I’ve had the pleasure of working with the autism community through the Autism Job Club, CASDA, MentorAbility Ontario and membership in organizations such as CASE and CERIC.
I believe that being weird is a positive thing. I love Marvel movies, musicals and singing when it best embarrasses my kids. I’m an avid baker, reader, gardener and collector of action figures.

Chief Swissy (CTO)
I started my career in IT and while studying electronic engineering at DeVry during the day, I worked midnights programming placement machines that placed components on circuit boards.
From there, I moved into call centre and desktop support where I started developing website using MS Access, Cold Fusion, and Classic ASP (Active Server Pages). My first major project was replacing binders full of call centre routing information with a web app.
In 1999 I fell victim to the dot-com bubble when the company I was working for went under and I started my own web design and development company.
Shortly after that, I became 1 of the 3 first members of a startup that built a platform for selling ringtones and images. There, I created midi ringtones, wallpaper images, and built a backend licensing and content tracking tool with classic ASP.
