Growing up in the computer age, it’s no surprise I was raised surrounded by technology. I received my first computer by the age of four. It’s also no surprise that today you will likely find me behind my computer screen improving my web development skills or helping a client remove a virus from their computer.

I am passionate about marketing, technology, web development, bodybuilding, nutrition/cooking, and giving back to the community. I am pursuing my passions at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario by studying Business Administration.

I dedicate some time out of my week to volunteer in two student-run clubs: Startup Laurier and XLerate Laurier. I am a firm believer of giving back, because we all know you get out what you put in. Many doors have been opened for me, and they have given me a platform to improve my marketing skills.

I have experience working with WordPress, HTML5, CSS3, and Adobe Photoshop. These help me pursue my dream, to create. I’ve become so in love with creation because it takes failure to reach success, but this only makes success feel that much better.

I’ve caught the entrepreneurship bug, but there is no way I’m going to a doctor to get it checked out. I feel by doing what I love, one day it will pay off. And I’m not talking about money. I’m talking about self-fulfilment.
