I was born into Thorncliffe Park. School for me was a struggle, I was a special education student for many years. Public education gave me a fighting chance (my school story).
My experiences range from being an international election monitor in Ukraine to quitting my job to co-found the startup company Expertise Finder which I currently run.
Insatiably curious. It’s why I learned to speak French, Russian and Greek. It’s why I got a master’s at Université Laval studying in French even though my parents didn’t attend university or speak French. It’s why I built this site. I’m always learning.
Ask around. I fought tooth and nail for the children of John Fisher Public School and together we got results.
It was personal, my son is a student, and it was principle, public education is a core of any strong society and the kind I want to live in.
I’ve lived on three continents. I was born and raised in Ontario and educated at public schools and universities in Ontario and Quebec.
I’m a coach, volunteer and I have worked at a TV producer as well as an international election observer across the former USSR. I currently run a startup I co-founded.
I’m a native English speaker who speaks French fluently and I hold my own in Russian and Greek.
