Born in September of 1984 to the Nintendo generation, his schooling developed around science and continued until high school where it was traded for interest into investments, financing and business management.
An active member of the Junior Achievement program in high school for three years, he held the positions of VP of Administration, and VP of Finance for two terms. This in turn gave him the knowledge to run two successful companies, one in computer retail and repair, and the other in business consultation. Both businesses would be closed (one at a profit, the other at a loss)
Now a member of the Land Force Reserve in the Canadian Forces, employed as a combat engineer with the 31 Combat Engineer Regiment (the "Elgin’s"), he spends most of his time on Thursdays and the weekends training with the regiment on multiple courses offered by the military.
