A man with many hats

I'm sure you've heard the saying “Jack of all trades, Master of none”
Here’s how Wikipedia defines the expression:
“Jack of all trades, Master of none” is a figure of speech used in reference to a person that is competent with many skills but is not outstanding in any particular one.

Master of none? I don’t see how being competent in many skills entails not having mastery of any. Sure, one person can’t master everything in the world. But only master one skill? Are you serious? This doesn’t make sense...at least not in my world. With almost 20 years of experience, I have mastered all of the roles outlined below with great accolades from my peers, and clients alike while doing them. I am able to not only master excellent results for you and your business, but will also stay on time, and on budget every time!

Originally the T-shaped “Pump and Screen House” which is now the Cibo Waterfront Café was built in 1951 to provide water coolant to the expanded Amy Street, Steam Heating Plant.

The steam plant occupied the site across from the adjacent mere hotel from 1923 to 1990 and steam produced there was the primary source of heat for much of downtown Winnipeg. This was created while employed as a Marketing Specialist with FWS.

The Pump and Screen House featured a unique engineering solution to draw water from the Red River, filter out impurities and transport the cooling fluid, under what was then rail lines, to the Steam Heat Plant. After the steam plant ceased operation in 1990, the pump house equipment was sold and removed, and the premises were converted to office, workshop and storage space for the City’s Harbourmaster. It has now been transformed to Winnipeg's newest and hippest cafe's in all of downtown, as it showcases its venue with modern signage throughout.
