About Chris

I come from a business and technology background. I have a diploma in Business Management from Dublin Institute of Technology and also have a Diploma in IT Systems. After moving to Vancouver in 2014 I fell in love with the IT industry here and started a career in technology with a local software company in Gastown.

Entrepreneurship has always been my passion, my skill set from working in the Technology and Sales Industries has now allowed me to evolve and become more well rounded. A firm believer in using modern technology to make things more efficient and easier for people I started kingpintravel.com in 2016, it's still in the development phase and we're aiming for a full re-launch in early 2018 or before.

I want to find like-minded individuals and business to help make profitable businesses and that I can:

- Start new ventures with
- Join onto their startups for equity
- Welcome them to join anything I start for equity
- Network with
- Assist in any business dealings where possible

I am willing to put in any hours needed, working with me you will see my ability to jump through hoops!

Work Experience

IT Specialist

Global Relay

September 2015 - Today

I deal with on-boarding new clients to our software, I work with the client directly and their IT team to ensure a smooth transition from a technical standpoint and making sure the project meets deadlines on-time and efficiently. Planning, project management and organizing is a big part of my role. Companies I deal with can vary in size from a 1 user firm to a thousand user+ firm so every setup and environment I deal with is different.
