Hi, I’m Cam. I’m a Director here at Streets Alive Mission. I am responsible for staffing, programs, building maintenance, etc. The most important things I do are running the facility and all programs within. I’m in charge of basically anything and everything related to the “people” side of the mission.
I have always known more than most when it comes to Streets Alive due to the relationship with my parents, who are the co-founders. I worked for the organization for 3 years, from 99-02. Over the last 5 years or so, I have had a pull in my heart to get back to making a difference in the lives of those within the Mission.
I am a CPI certified instructor on non-violent crisis intervention, as well as a Red Seal ticketed journeyman in the trades. I ran my own company for over a decade. But my most important accomplishment would be my beautiful daughter Isabella.
I have a wide range of passions, but most of all it’s family. They are my passion and my hope. To see what my parents have been able to achieve, and look into the potential in my daughter’s eyes, has me smiling ear to ear.
My favourite winter activity is hockey. I’m a proud season ticket holder with the Lethbridge Hurricanes, and a die-hard Oilers fan. I also play rec hockey around the city.
Truth be told, I can be a bit of a shut in with my X-Box when it gets too cold outside. Games-wise I am a FPS guy. I have some friends I never see and we all seem to get together (online at least) come Oct-March for Call of Duty. We are not good at it, but we get to hang out and catch up with each other while we get destroyed by other much better players.
In the summer, I play a lot of golf and softball. I sit on the board of directors for Lethbridge Mixed SlowPitch Association.
I’d have to say that I am a Marvel guy when it comes to Superheroes. Spiderman probably my favorite, and a close second would be Batman from the DC universe.
As for quirks… My wife says I have the uncanny ability to always get my dishes to the sink, yet be completely oblivious to the dishwasher a foot away. I also have whatever the opposite of a green thumb is; Gardens are not my friends. Thankfully there’s no gardening involved in what I do at the Mission!
