Prior to joining MPH Agency, I worked with and campaigned at all levels of government, both in Canada and internationally. I worked for the Conservative Party of Canada from 2005 to 2012 and the Ontario PC Party from 2012 to 2014. During that time, I was involved in over 60 municipal and provincial election campaigns across Canada. I have also worked on elections in Australia and the UK, and worked on the 2012 Florida Primary and played a key role on the Presidential National Support Team. In 2017, I was National Campaign Manager for the highly-publicized and groundbreaking Kevin O’Leary Leadership Campaign.
