Tell us about your past experience (where did you go to school, previous jobs, volunteer work, etc.)
I moved around a lot so I actually went to 10 schools. For the past 16 years I've worked in the hospitality industry. The majority of that time as a Chef for restaurants like Patria and Pure Spirits in Toronto. Although I did spend a few years outside the kitchen as a event promoter on King Street. I volunteered and went to build an all girls school in a remote village in Kenya when I was 16.
What is your favourite thing about your industry/job?
My favourite thing about real estate is how dynamic it is. Deals are intricate and there is constant change so you have to stay on top of your game.
Who stands out to you / do you most admire?
I admire a lot of military veterans turned entrepreneurs as I think it's really admirable to see people take the same level of dedication and intensity they put towards serving their country and apply it towards business. People like Jocko Willink, Tim Kennedy, David Goggins.
