I graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Computer Science. For the last 15 years, I have been working for the University of Toronto where I am currently an Assistant Director in charge of Systems and Technical Operations for Scholarsportal. My work has revolved around supporting Ontario University Libraries with their digital resource needs. I have been living in the Grange neighbourhood for the last 10 years and I would love an opportunity to give back to the community that has given me so much over those years. I’m convinced that I can learn a lot from the current board, and it is my hope that my love for a strong community for my family coupled with my professional experience would be of benefit to my community.
