In 2005 I completed the intensive two year program with Honors from University of Toronto.

I love to stay active and have a need for speed. Over the years I have raced NASCARS, Laborghinis, and Ferraris. For a time I also enjoyed motorcycling until a minor accident in 2009 made me decide to take a leave of absence from the sport.
