Toronto, On

I am a businessman-environmentalist-change-maker, who aspires to make a positive difference in the world.

I am currently a student pursuing a dual degree in Environmental Sciences at Western University and Business Administration through the Richard Ivey School of Business. I am also completing a thesis on the creation of and promoting local food economies.Upon graduation, I hope to become involved in the clean tech space, as it relates to renewable energies, waste reduction or urban agriculture.

I have a great interest in international development, which reflects my major extracurricular involvement. I am the executive director of the Ivey LEADER Project. I facilitate teams of HBA and MBA students from Ivey, which travel internationally to teach business education and entrepreneurial fundamental skills to individuals. Our goal is to promote economic development by empowering aspiring business owners and entrepeneurs, and giving them the tools to start their own businesses. If you are a business professional or experienced entrepreneur and you would like to travel with us and make a difference in emerging economies, please connect with me!

I am a huge biking fanatic, and spend my spare time being active and outdoors. I also have a passion for music, whether that is singing outloud, playing in a marching band, or jamming on the guitar with friends.

If you are a adrenaline junkie, want to collaborate on a new venture, or chat about world-changing ideas, let's connect!
