At an early age, Lloyd developed a love for amateur radio that became a lifelong passion, communicating around the world under his various call signs: VE3 ERQ and VE3 NUU-B in Canada, 9V1ZI in Singapore, and VK3 BGW in Australia. His adventurous spirit saw him at the helm of sail boats in Canada, a sea going trawler in Singapore and eventually power catamarans in Australia.
Lloyd graduated from the University of Windsor with an Honours B.A.Sc., joined Motorola, and earned his Professional Engineer license.
At Motorola, Lloyd was instrumental in progressing many technologies used in our daily lives such as cellular phones, pagers, and commercialized satellites.
