Details of experience:

My experience with event management and encouraging sustainability has been a growing process throughout the passed 10 years. My wife and I started Girl On Wax Entertainment and wanted to focus on female DJ’s, musicians and performers to even the playing field and create equality in the work place. This field of work is dominated by males and we are changing that. Our company is now one of the leading events company in Vancouver. GirlOnWax has 15 female DJ's and many  musicians and performers apart of the team. We are spreading across Canada and have done events internationally. GirlOnWax Entertainment is also a paperless company with a very low consumption load, we do this by using our home as our office and have limited our vehicles to one work vehicle to do over 350 events a year. GirlOnWax Events also supports local charities including The Union Gospel Mission, Vancouver Canucks Autism Network The Decoda Literacy Foundation, several animal charities and organizations. 2015 we were first runner up for best wedding entertainment company in B.C.

What inspires me is solving problems and producing events and projects as well as inspiring others around me to make there own sustainable choices. 

I have expanded my knowledge into energy management systems and I am working with corporate businesses in technology and agriculter to be sustainable in everyday business practice as well as thinking of new innovative ways to lower there consumption, while saving money for there business. Currently I am working on a few of my own projects in Solar and Agriculture.
