Accepting Offers

I am excited to announce that I am currently open to new career opportunities.  After spending a very rewarding 5 years with Sq’ewá:lxw First Nation, I moved to the Central Coast to work with the Heiltsuk Tribal Council.  The community was wonderful but my family could not make the commitment to living in such a remote location.  That being said, I am currently accepting short term contracts or full time work that will allow the flexibility for me to complete my MBA program.  My coursework will be complete in October of 2019.

As My career journey progresses, I will update this page.  However, some of the projects that I expect to be involved in include the following sectors:

  • Cannabis
  • Tourism
  • Retail
  • Governance
  • Resource Management
  • Entrepreneurship Development
  • Comprehensive Community Planning

I had the pleasure of working with Mike at Saturn of Regina. His customer Satisfaction level was always high. He had a genuine interest in his clients. He is a fast learner and a product specialist. Mike was always motivated to learn and grow in his career. He also achieved Top Performer recognitions on several occasions. Mike would be a great asset to any company or organization.

Mike provided recommendations to SFU Career Services regarding ways in which we can offer meaningfully Career programs to our Indigenous community on campus. He shared his story in writing through blogs and as the Master of Ceremonies at our Indigenous Peoples Career Stories 2012 to help us understand what we needed to learn. Working with Mike has been educational and completely enjoyable.

Mike has demonstrated a commitment to excellence in his work and a creativity that has helped us be a better organization. Mike walks the talk, a quality that is increasingly harder to find these days. Mike is a fine teammate who always is up for a challenge.

Chris Wong-MoonOperations Manager

Mike is a very CREATIVE, skilled, experienced and knowledgeable marketing professional. He knows his role and incorporates all levels of media and marketing tools, including social media, to accomplish his task. A very responsible, on-time & on-budget, family-oriented individual, Mike wears his heart on his sleeve and calls it exactly how he sees it. I would recommend Mike to any organization without hesitation.

Crabs and Prawns from Heiltsuk Waters!

By | Family, Work | No Comments

This was an amazing day!  I asked Susanna’s high school classmate, Trav Hall, to give me a tour of his territories.  I went out on the boat with Trav and his very funny cousin, Junior.  I heard some great stories and learned some of the histories of the territory.  After it was all done, I had a feast of crab and prawn!

Ǧiáxsix̌a to Trav and Junior for their hospitality.  Next time, I’ll get the refreshments!
