I am a compulsive Entrepreneur with over 30 years experience creating and operating technology, finance and real estate related ventures.   I founded my first company while still at University of Alberta to import and distribute cellular telephone equipment in Alberta before the cellular system was launched in Canada.  I did my first public company deal when I was 27 years old - Optical Data Systems Inc - a high technology data storage service company targeting the oil and gas industry.  Successful sale in 1992.   Got excited about the World Wide Web in 1995 and dived in with online cash funding and lead generation businesses.  Registered Cashadvance.com in early 1997 and built it into one of the largest online lead generation sites in the payday loan space.  Sold in 2010.  Now working on new startups in mobile apps and seeking angel investment opportunities.
