Adrien Friesen

Toronto, Canada

An ambitious, bilingual, and motivated young professional, passionate about GIS, international development policy, and leveraging transit and tourism for local economic development. I believe we can further build a sustainable and equitable world with the promotion and harnessing of unique local strengths and market connections. Advancing economic development means understanding context and conditions, distinct to each and every place on our globe. Working in two countries abroad has given me a perpetual flow of fresh perspectives that feed me with new ideas and insights regarding transit, economic development, and GIS applications. I strive to leverage my varied experiences in positively influencing the future of our global communities and the quality of life for those within them.
