I am passionate about helping exploration and development companies evolve their discoveries in a socially responsible way. A key element to achieving this goal is access to capital. With global experience in mining and finance, as a director of AME I believe I could continue to leverage this experience to help advocate for policies and regimes that would help to attract increased capital for investment in mineral exploration in BC.
