CPA, CA

Senior Accountant

What are you surprisingly good at?

Quidditch. I used to play at the University of Waterloo and my position was Chaser. If you don’t know what Quidditch is, it is a sport invented by the author J.K Rowling in her award-winning series, Harry Potter. The game consists of two teams of seven players each mounted on a broomstick. There are various types of balls (dodgeball, volleyball, tennis ball) to try and score with various face values.

 

What are you most passionate about?

I love watching football, and I’m always stoked to see my team, the New England Patriots, dominate every Sunday.

 

What’s important inside your community? Are you part of any organizations?

Presently, no I’m not involved in any not-for-profit organizations. However, I have volunteered at various organizations in the past:

  • University of Waterloo Orientation Day
  • Heart & Stroke Foundation (Big Bike)
  • Helped organize a badminton tournament with all proceeds going to the Heart & Stroke Foundation

 

What do you feel have been the most important successes in your life?

As most accountants will probably say, obtaining my CFE and getting my designation has been a big accomplishment for me. I’m very satisfied with the path I chose to get where I am today.

 

If you could be a superhero or have a superpower, what would it be?

I want to be able to control time. I really need more sleep…

 

What are your favourite hobbies, sports team, and/or food?

I like going to the gym. I also enjoy playing sports, such as football, quidditch, soccer, and basketball. I always like challenging myself and trying out new sports and activities so I tried Muay Thai for a bit – that was fun!
