IT BEGINS WITH LIFE CHOICES.
I am an entrepreneur by DNA. Growing up one set of grandparents owned a real estate brokerage called Oakridge Realty and Insurance. It was located at 39th and Cambie in Vancouver. My other set of grandparents owned an electrical contracting company called Acme Electric. At the age of 16 I had options and made a choice - I started a catering company called Mark of Excellence Catering. I went to cooking school at age 18 and at age 21 I bought a deli in Granville Island Public Market and named it The Almost Kosher Deli. After four years I sold that, went back to school for Hospitality Management and worked for the worlds largest contract food service corporation. I ran the catering department at Simon Fraser University and many other local colleges. I learned how a global corporation runs - all the ups and downs - all the pitfalls.
