He has published widely as author and editor, within government and in a personal capacity; commented in the media; and presented at academic, business and official venues, including the WTO, the World Bank, APEC, and the OECD. Recently, he participated in the industrial policy expert group in the E-15 initiative sponsored by the International Centre for Sustainable Development and the World Economic Forum developing recommendations for the upcoming WTO Ministerial Conference; was co-winner of the McKinsey Global Institute essay contest, “Opportunity for Europe”, a crowd-sourced initiative to identify ways to revitalize European growth; and is currently a participant in and contributing author to the MegaReg initiative, “Contested Megaregulation: The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)”, sponsored by the Global Institute for Advanced Study at NY University Law School, the United Nations University, and Japan’s National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS).

Prior positions with DFAIT include deputy to the Chair of the APEC Economic Committee and Finance Counsellor at Canada's Embassy in Germany. Before joining DFAIT, he worked at the Department of Finance, including from 1983-1990 with the Financial Sector Policy Branch where he served as Chief of the Financial Institutions Section and Project Director, Financial Institutions Reform Project, and chaired the Inter-Departmental Legislative Review Committee, which guided the development of the 1992 reforms that overhauled the federal financial institutions statutes (the Bank Act, the Insurance Companies Act, the Trust and Loan Companies Act and the Cooperative Credit Associations Act).
