What do you enjoy about working at Concordia?
I enjoy the diversity of projects and personalities I come in contact with every day. Everyone seems to care for the university and the well being of its students. I’m passionate about shedding light on all of the different people, places, and activities associated with CUNE and constructing stories using a visual medium that can grab one’s attention and evoke emotion. I’m also passionate about seeing students succeed in the classroom and being able to pass some of my knowledge that I’ve gained over the years to an eager student body.
Anything else you think readers should know about you?
When possible, I prefer to skateboard to work. I’m that guy.
