He frequently shares his thoughts on creativity and innovation with everyone from university students to technology thought leaders, and is particularly interested in what makes a good idea successful. His impressive list of accomplishments and credentials include a BSc in computer science from the University of Calgary as well as a PhD in computer science from Carnegie-Mellon University.
