A Bit About Myself

I am an entrepreneurial and energetic person with a passion for telling stories that invoke emotion and creating products that people love to use. I am particularly driven to pursue  technology education for it's ever growing importance, video games for their ability to bring joy and tell incredibly intricate visual stories, and writing for its importance in my life personally. In my spare time I have started a technology education organization called the Interdisciplinary Entrepreneurship Association ( that brings hardware technology education to students to equip them for new and emerging industries. The remaining time I have I spend playing videogames (Mass Effect, NHL and FIFA being my favourites) and rock climbing.
