How long have you been working with ABAA?

I started working with ABAA before ABAA was formed. My job was to replicate the National Air Barrier Association in the US so I filed for incorporation of the association, did all the paperwork required and as my company (Building Professionals) was hired to administer ABAA, we organized everything from day one

What's your role in helping the Association?

I act as the Executive Director and spend a lot of time in the standards, building codes and product evaluation areas

Where's the farthest place you've travelled to?

The farthest place I have traveled to is Bali.

What were your favorite TV Show or Movie and Band while you were growing up?

My favorite TV show growing up was "Get Smart" and my favorite musical group was "The Monkeys".

What is one of the least intelligent things you have done and then wondered "What was I thinking?!"

I built a house with 24 inch thick walls. The Basement had R40, the walls R80 and the Ceiling R80

What are you most excited about with regards to ABAA's future?

Being the center of excellence for air barriers and setting the standards for performance
