I give back to my organization, my colleagues, and my community; I lead with or without the "C" on my jersey.

Guido's Professional Profile


When I was 15 years old, I told my parents I wanted to find a job. My mother said, "Once you start working, you'll never stop." She was right. Neither getting the job or her being right were bad things.


My first job was as a Runner & Maintenance for a women's fashion store. I cleaned windows, did bank runs on my 10-speed bike, and of course other duties. My first ever wage was for $2.50 an hour. The first two things I purchased were for my parents, which included a sweater for my mom at Christmas, from the store I worked at and a box of ice-cream for my dad.


From that moment forward, I have taken great pride in all of my work. 


Why is it important for me to start the story there? As I reflect back on my working roots, I could not categorize, name, or brand anything and everything I did, back then. Reflection yields to me that I've had these foundational building blocks to my professional DNA from a very early age:



I haver been working in Information Technology, focused on back-end service delivery and support since 1996. I have had the privilege of helping small field offices in Northern Ontario in the middle of a park and then authoring technology standards supporting best business practices, from downtown Toronto. My dedication has embraced a blended approach to ensure I could provide the best possible service I would want to receive as a citizen, while taking pride in my delivery through integrity, honesty, leadership, and a set of core organic and common sense values.

I deliberately studied and achieved University and College credentials in Sociology focused on social behaviour and welfare as well as Computer Engineering. I've continued to compliment those with additional certifications and training along the way in Business Relationship Management, Service Management, inclusion, diversity, anti-racism, mental health, acuity, and behavioural sciences. 

My journey has taken me through the multiple organizations with a goal of leaving things better than how I found them. I've made that journey through logging roads, side roads, town roads, city streets, and major highways, with my eyes wide open for appreciation of the great people I met along the way.


Some of the best life lessons that were learned from my "jobs" went on to influence and serve my career. I am thankful for the people who taught me those lessons, both from a position of strength and leadership as much as those from a position of insecurity and self-awareness. 


My "job" goal was to work in as many industries as possible to expand my knowledge, better understand people's actions, emotions, awareness, and ethics at all levels, and make a few dollars to enjoy music. My "career" goal has been to leave things better than what I have found them as a contributing and valued leader in wherever my passion and dedication takes me.
