"I'm what I might call a reluctant entrepreneur." Growing up, Alex was always finding ways to make money; starting with selling lemonade and an upsell purchase of his drawings of NHL hockey logos, followed by hustling lawnmowing jobs. His first summer job was at 12 years old and he worked for others (with a pit stop in between) until July 2017. He finally gave into his true nature of entrepreneurship and he is taking all his skills as a Chartered Accountant and applying them to entrepreneurial ventures.

CEO & Founder
Building off years of experience in financial reporting, which started with my crash course in taking Naked Brand Group public, I started an advisory firm specialized in providing Chief Financial Officer (CFO) services, financial reporting, and accounting support.
But beyond accounting services, I founded Treewalk to chart a brighter, more fulfilling career path for accountants. Listed as one of BC's best workplaces, Treewalk exists to help you get what you want out of a career; whether that be advancement, flexibility, or mastering your craft.
