What is your favourite inspirational quote?
There are literally as many ideas as there are organisms. 
–Janine Benyus
What is a little known fact about you?
I'm a member of the Antarctic and Arctic Polar Swim Clubs.
Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
Like explorers, Schulich scholars conduct and communicate novel science research. Conducting innovative investigations, disseminating research results and applying my research to environmental and social issues all ensure I contribute to the scientific enterprise.
Like magicians, Schulich scholars transform experience into service, service into science.  Through building links with people, using creative media, and modeling positive approaches, I go beyond experience to provide service¬–frequently conducting participatory research or gathering, transforming, sharing and applying information as I go.
Like inventors, Schulich scholars innovate and improve communities. I raise awareness; engage students and adults; positively influence behaviour; and protect precious ecosystems. The contributions and inspirational-value of these involvements and projects I initiated and support has been acknowledged by local, national and international organizations. 
I'm excited to learn from and be inspired by the  explorers, magicians and inventors of the future.
