Hobbies & Interests

As a well-rounded individual, I have diverse interests that keep me engaged outside of work. One of my passions is dancing, and I am proud to be part of a men's pre-competitive dance team. We recently achieved top awards at a competition, showcasing our skills and leaving judges in awe. Music also holds a special place in my heart, as I have been playing various instruments for over 20 years. Additionally, I dedicate my time to volunteering with Scouts Canada, fostering leadership skills and a love for the outdoors among young people. When I'm not dancing or making music, you can find me exploring nature through hiking and camping. These activities have shaped my discipline, teamwork, and personal responsibility, qualities that I bring to my professional pursuits.
