Ok. Part Two is less about rhetoric and more about me.
This is a blog about the oil sands – an industry in which I make my living as a Human Resources Advisor.
Along with my wife, I moved to Fort McMurray from Victoria, BC, in Feb of 2006, and have had the right combination of hard work, education, attitude, luck and connections to establish a new and (so far) successful life in northern Alberta.
I have a communications degree, am currently in the process of becoming a Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP), and in a previous life I used to be an apprentice cook.
