About Tim Francis

Hi, my name is Tim Francis, and I am the owner of this Blog.  I have been a passionate entrepreneur for over 10 years now.  Probably longer than that if you count all of the street hockey games I organized as a kid, ski trips and pep rallies I led in Student Council, and hole-in-the-wall venues I played in as the drummer of a touring rock band.  Suffice to say it’s been quite the ride :)

I was honoured to be named one of Edmonton’s “Sizzling 20 Under 30” up-and-coming business leaders in 2009.  I have also been very fortunate to appear on CTV, Access Television, Canadian Learning Television (CLT), and in two educational video games for Alberta Education.
