Hi. This site is a work in progress.

Hi there. You came here to learn about me, well read on!

Riyaz Khair

more than just a P.Eng./PMP

My background is in engineering (mechanical) and I’ve had the pleasure of working on many projects in a design capacity, but I’ve also managed a small teams, started a design house, built a marketing presence for several companies, hired all stars, and closed clients on projects.

All that is to say, I’ve had the opportunity to make a lot of mistakes, and I’ve made them. I’ve closed down a company, let people go, and cancelled projects. I’m climbing my second mountain, continuously figuring out what I want to be doing next and loving the journey.

The eye-opener that is fatherhood

Becoming a father was the most eye-opening experience I have ever had. Hobbies and personal time take on a whole new meaning.

Tackling the WCT

The West Coast Trail is the most grueling and rugged hike I've ever done. It's also one of the most serene, gorgeous, and wild experiences I've had, ever.
