We worked together  •  CEO and Co-founder, Giftbit and President and CEO, Kiind Inc.. University of Victoria grad.
Dick has advised my company for a year. He is smart, thoughtful, direct, and massively helpful. His advice changed the course of our company ... and moved us from a struggling business into being a more sustainable business.

They're my friends  •  Part Connector, Part Geek, A whole bunch Entrepreneur. Leading Curatio to be the world's first social health prescription.
Dick has a unique gift to see into the future in a way that most people can't and the ability to take what he sees and apply it to problems ... that need smart, mind-blowing solutions.
James Topham
We worked together  •  Member of the Board of Directors, 3 Tier Logic and Chair of the Board & Audit Committee, Epic Fusion Corp.
When I met Dick he was in his first start-up. The company was growing but investment was tight. He did a major pivot and landed in a hot s ... pace so he sold his company and did very well. His next company was a huge risk but with fantastic potential rewards. Unfortunately, it didn't work so he's now on his third start-up and it has great potential. In terms of his qualities, Dick is a very intelligent risk taker who thinks out of the box. He is always challenging himself and whoever he is talking to. I think he has learned a lot from his first two ventures that he is applying to his third venture. Dick has the drive and think out of the box intelligence that will lead to great things.
