I started off attending Algonquin College for Computer Science. As much as I enjoyed it, it wasn't quite the right fit for me. So I decided to pursue my other passion, Political Science, at Carleton University
I graduated from Carleton University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science.
I am an avid computer gamer. I enjoy playing strategy and RPG games. I also have an amateur youtube channel dedicated to gaming.
I have an interest in sailing, but my sailboat lies dormant in my garage for the time being.
I met my wife in 2007 on an online dating website. It took a little persuasion to win her over. We married in 2012. She works as a corporate travel agent. She is my equal part and my rock.
We have a wonderful all black cat that we adopted in 2013 from the Ottawa Humane Society.
My Parents moved to Portland when I was 5 years old. My Mother worked for The Federal Government as a Liaison Officer for the Official Languages Program for the Public Service Commission before I was born. My Father was an Electrical Engineer Manager for The Department of Energy Mines and Resouces.
My father, who passed away in 2015, was a member of The Rideau Lakes Township council in the 90s. It is partially because of him that I am encouraged and inspired to run.
I have enjoyed many of the sights and sounds that Ottawa has such as The Tulip Festival, and my wife's all time favourite La Machine.
