Program Coordinator, BIM Lifecycle Management Program, Algonquin College
As a young professional, my goal has been very simple from the outset. I want to contribute to changing the industry; help it grow and evolve with the emerging technologies and processes of the 21st Century; help it develop smarter and more interoperable data and interfaces; help it to improve the quality and efficiency of work done by all trades. However, recently a new goal has developed for me in light of my travels and experiences; to achieve those goals above but in the best interests of the Canadian context.
