What is a little known fact about you?


I really enjoy some bizzare things. I like my pasta undercooked, and have a facination with all things Dyson (I love their crazy passion for aerodynamics). 


Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader? 


I believe that the essence of being a Schulich Leader is refusing to suppress your aspirations—especially your academic and innovative ones. I’m not afraid to approach a problem in an unconventional manner, and am passionate about matching my talents with the complex challenges of the future. Whether it’s in academics, projects, or extracurricular activities, I thoroughly enjoy striving for excellence while finding a way to make it relevant to the world around us.
