Biography

I was born and raised in Sault Ste. Marie. Locally, I attended Notre-Dame-des-Écoles elementary school, St. Mary’s College high school, then obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and History at Algoma University. At Algoma U, I was elected to the Student Union and was proud to participate in the pursuit of independence for Algoma University from Laurentian University.

After my undergrad, I attended the University of Ottawa where I obtained my law degree. While at uOttawa I was fortunate enough to be published in the Summer 2012 edition of the Canadian Parliamentary Review and the July 2013 edition of the Journal of Parliamentary and Political Law for my essay ‘Bilingualism and Bijuralism at the Supreme Court of Canada’.

Despite having gone away for school, I was intent on returning to Sault Ste. Marie upon completing my legal studies. Fortunately, I was able to do so when I was offered a position at the Wishart Law Firm, where I’ve worked since 2012. I am committed to giving back to my community, and I ran for City Council so that more people can return home to serve the Sault in whatever capacity they are able to. Thanks to the residents of Ward 3, I was sent to the Council table, having been elected in Ward 3 with 2,705 votes. I am grateful for this opportunity and will work hard every day to satisfy the concerns of Ward 3 and the City at large.

My wife Jenna and I were married in October 2015; we live in the Sault with our West Highland Terrier pup named Maple.
