A local, dynamic, results-oriented community leader with a broad base of experience in areas of public policy, stakeholder engagement and local advocacy. A proven ability to work with and navigating municipal, provincial, and federal governments, along with not for profit and charitable organizations to achieve strategic goals.
My story begins as a young shy boy who always hid behind his mother. Then turned into the most chatty person in the classroom. I attended Mohawk Gardens, Pineland Public School, Nelson High School, and McMaster University. Burlington has always been home, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I joined the Burlington Teen Tour Band, got to travel the world and mature quicker than I could’ve ever imagined. I began to understand the importance of community service. I have sat on organizing committees, boards and campaigns that have all benefitted the Burlington community. I’ve worked for many small businesses in town to pay for school, have gained over 10,000 volunteer hours in that time and now work in the charitable space every day. I truly believe in building bridges. I believe in looking out for your neighbour. I believe in doing good.
So, that’s me. I would love to hear from you if you ever want to get to know each other better.
