EV Instructor, Motive Power, BCIT

Hi everyone, I'm an Automotive Instructor working for the School of Transportation here at BCIT.

Since 2012, I've been involved in teaching local and international students using my industry skills to contribute to their learning that happens every day here.

I'm also a former student of BCIT where I earned my Red Seal in 1993. Working as a technician for Mazda for 22 years, I've witnessed many technological changes leading up to this point in the automotive industry where we are now living what is, potentially, the largest transformation ever.

I've been with the Electric Vehicle program since 2019 and look forward to its trending rapid advances, all the buzz it encompasses and its progression at an unprecedented rate.
