"I grew up in the Greater Toronto Area and studied at McGill University for my Bachelor of Science. I started my professional career in the telecommunications sector in Montreal; providing technical support and account management for unified communication products for 8 years. I later moved back to the GTA in 2017 and worked for Rogers Communications, also in a technical support role for residential cable services for the past 4 years.
I decided earlier this year to make a career change, more in line with my studies, passions, and interests. I've always been inspired by the work of climate action leaders like David Suzuki, David Attenborough, Al Gore, Greta Thunberg, and alike. After discovering the role of an energy advisor, I started studying and passed both exams, traveled to Chicago to see the Energy Revolution exhibit at the Chicago Architecture Centre, listened to countless webinars from Efficiency Canada (Carleton University), Building Knowledge Canada, and reading publications related to our industry. Most recently, I've joined and volunteered time with a local climate change action group in my community and lobbied our government for more aggressive targets on emissions caps on the oil and gas industry.
In my personal time, I enjoy traveling, spending time in nature, and being active. That includes over two decades of camping experience around Ontario's provincial parks, the Muskoka and Kawartha regions, and have been playing golf for the past 6 years. In 2016, I went backpacking across Southeast Asia for 6 months, covering Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Taiwan and I'm currently a certified advanced open-water diver with PADI with hopes to pursue further certification in the future."
