I grew up in North Battleford
, Saskatchewan. At the age of ten, I began playing chess competitively and, at fifteen, became the youngest ever National Master from the province.
Chess would not become my profession, however. In 2011, having always been interested in science and technology, I moved to Montreal to pursue an engineering degree at McGill. I completed four different internships during the course of my studies and graduated with a Bachelor of Software Engineering
in May 2016.
It's been a great experience living in such a diverse city as Montreal, but, after nearly five years here, I will be returning west in order to begin an exciting new job in Edmonton this July.
