Harold Pliszka, B.H.Ecol.

As an entrepreneur and "wannabe" philanthropist, Harold first came up with the idea for HYTES during a trip to Tanzania and Kenya in 2004. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in Human Ecology from the University of Manitoba, and owns and operates Iron Lava Corp, a graphic design and web development firm. Harold also sits on the Boards of Calgary Keys to Recovery Society and Marda Loop Communities Association.

In September 2013, Harold begins full time studies toward a Master of Social Work specializing in International and Community Development.

Harold enjoys summer the most when he heads out to the Canadian Rocky Mountains in pursuit of whitewater canoeing.
