Think back to when you were a child. Was there role or occupation that you dreamed of doing when you grew up?

As an young man, I always wanted to end up as an investment banker. While watching investment TV shows, I was amazed at how the stock exchange worked and what all the tickers meant. The immense wealth of knowledge investment bankers posses pertaining to different industries was just mind blowing to me, this passion drove me to teach myself how to invest in stock markets on a much smaller scale and Investing is now one of my hobbies.


There are many compelling reasons to undertake an Executive MBA Program. What is your goal for the Telfer Executive MBA Program?

My goal in the Telfer Executive MBA program is improve by business competencies and enhance my managerial skills. The program has immensely increased my marketability in my current organization as I continue to implement what I learn at work.


Is there any not-for-profit organizations or clubs which you support? What draws you to this cause?

I participate in fund raising activities for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). As a father, I believe every child deserves good health and JDRF strives make this a reality. 

The Telfer Executive MBA opens doors, but it’s the maturity and growth from it that lets you walk through that door.
