Nominated by George Armstrong

R.R. 1 Wolfville, NS

I'm a third year Computer Engineering student interested in applying my analytical and probelm solving skills in the financial industry. I have completed a summer internship with the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board in Financing, Collateral and Trading under Capital Markets and will be completing my final summer internship with the British Columbia Investment Management Corporation in Quantitative Strategies under Capital Markets. 

A fun fact about me is that I believe that the five people you surround yourself with are the best representation of yourself. Those five people around me allow me to pursue academic excellence, make revolutionary contributions to society, and seek motivational challenges to continue to better myself. I think I make a great Schulich Leader because I possess these traits, with enormous amounts of help from my network of superb individuals. I am where I am today because of the people I chose to surround myself with on the journey I’ve embarked on. Now as a Schulich Leader, I’m surrounded by my generation’s top talent. What better network could you ask for?
