An Economic Policy Advisor, Office of Small & Medium Enterprises at Public Services, Government of canada 

He is an An avid community leader, I volunteer in advisory, consultant, and council roles in a variety of initiatives.
I have passion for experimentation and collaborative impact that has led me to become involved in several national/global initiatives that align my interests in innovation, future of work and disruptive tech solutions . Most notably, I was recently selected as a Canadian delegate (partnership with World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Microsoft, Dalberg Consulting and Deloitte) to attend a UN Global Innovation Lab: UNLEASH, Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) for emerging leaders in Copenhagen, Denmark.

A key leadership trait that I practice is active listening. Easier said than done, engaging in genuine listening creates a safe space for dialogue and openness.

I enjoy my work with the Government of Canada, and my input into a high performing organization that is committed to strengthening innovation in the market and fostering a collaborative socio-economic impact in government and business for transformational solutions to emerging issues.
