About me....

For past twenty five years I was a CEO of two hi-tech start up companies (Spyglass and Kinaxis).  Both Spyglass (Nasdaq) and Kinaxis (TSX) conducted successful IPO's and built market values in the billions. Simultaneous with the success of these companies - I continued my own life long "wrestling match" with bipolar disorder and alcoholism. This is why friends and co-workers have encouraged me to blog about "Mental Health in the Workplace". It is long past due that we eliminate the ridiculous stigmas associated with common mental health conditions. This will result in people living much better lives, and organizations enjoying greater employee loyalty and productivity.
