He has spent over 15 years developing information systems with a company he co-founded in the 1990s. His company focused on developing custom-built solutions for a variety of industries, including professional sports (National Hockey League and National Basketball Association), entertainment event services, health care, transportation, and manufacturing. His academic research has involved advancing business system analysis and design techniques by improving communication processes during the development stage. His recent research investigated decisions by NHL teams that lead to the amateur draft.
