I am the Program Coordinator for the Fire Inspection and Fire Safety Education at Fanshawe College in London. I have been actively involved as a professional in the field of fire and life safety for over 25 years. Over the course of those 25 years I also served as a communicator and a fire prevention officer with Ottawa Fire Services, as chief fire prevention officer with St Catharines Fire Services, a professor at Algonquin College and a Regulatory Representative with Underwriters Laboratories. I have also contributed to code changes in both National and Ontario Fire and Building Codes along with several ULC National Standards of Canada in the area of fire life safety components and systems. I continue to serve on the ULC CAN/ULC-S588 committee and the Standards Council of Canada CAC/ISO/TC 59/SC16 - Accessibility and Usability of the Built Environment and SMC ISO TC145 Graphical Symbols committees.
