Wellness, family, and meaningful friendships are what I value most in life. I have two primary goals: have fun and be successful. For me having fun is doing meaningful work. I define success as making a positive difference in society while building meaningful relationships.
Wellness, inclusion and clean technology are three areas I am passionate about. Enjoying life is more valuable than giving up my own agency for a meaningless cause. The future will be so much more pleasant for myself and my children if we take care of the world we live in.
Starting, building and investing in businesses is fun for me. My goal is to create meaningful work that provides opportunities to make positive changes in the world we live in. I value authenticity and inclusion.
My current focus is to execute the vision, continuously improve the strategies, and ensure the leadership is aligned with the company’s primary objectives. My teams have successfully navigated a very fast changing industry.
Kaspi Films was another one of my ventures several years ago. It was one the first Canadian drone companies to legally fly (within Canada) a full sized cinema camera. Our first contract was for a car commercial and shortly after a beer commercial. Those two contracts quickly established Kaspi Films as the go-to UAV video service company for large scale film projects in both the entertainment and advertising spaces. We also landed contracts working with large scale real estate developments, tourism boards, documentaries, Olympians, popular TV shows, and a sports car commercial for the NFL Super Bowl.
My career of starting businesses started in 2000. The first business I started was a sole proprietorship in construction. Then in 2001 I registered Family Guidance Services in Nebraska. In 2002 I joined the US Navy and became a Helicopter Search and Rescue Swimmer with collateral duties as an Aviation Warfare Systems Operator. For work I jumped out of helicopters into the open ocean, fired machine guns out the helicopter door, and tracked ships and submarines with radar and sonar.
