Michael Crook

Instead of studying something interesting, Michael graduated with a degree in Commerce from UBC before going to work as a Commercial Appraiser and Real Estate Consultant with the Altus Group. He now works full time developing business applications and subscription data products. He has also worked as a freelance consultant with start-up companies and non-profits: helping with strategic & organizational planning and systems design & improvement.

Michael has a keen interest in the theology of politics and economics, and is currently working to create opportunities for subsidized ownership of affordable housing in Vancouver where he lives with his beautiful wife, Christina and their new daughter Madeleine.
