I am thrilled to be re-joining the team at McMillan as an articling student.

Advocacy has been the highpoint of my experiences. At Western Law, I have competed in 16 moots, with numerous placings. Most notably, I was honoured to be selected for two external competitions. I competed in the Arnup Cup Trial Advocacy Competition, and also for Western Law’s inaugural Julius Alexander Isaac Moot team where we ranked second out of 22 teams in our oral arguments. My time as a competitor concluded with the Warren K. Winkler Class Actions Moot, where I coached Western Law’s team through a rigorous certification motion.

Further, my work as a caseworker at Community Legal Services, Western’s legal clinic, has prepared me for my career. I represented low-income members of the London community in Small Claims Court, the Landlord and Tenant Board, and Family Court. Additionally, I worked at a boutique law firm in London during my 1L summer where I first gained litigation experience.

Lastly, due to the challenges that the pandemic posed for small businesses, I founded a club at Western called “Foodies” comprised of 50+ members. The club supports local businesses in London by designating a restaurant of the week, where members then visit the restaurant socially distanced (or order delivery) and provide the restaurant social media exposure.

I am grateful to have graduated with the Law Society of Ontario Award, awarded to the top 15 students in Western Law’s graduating class based on academic standing, and the Douglas May Memorial Award, awarded by faculty to a student who has made significant contributions to the community and law school.

Prior to law school, I attained a Bachelor of Arts from York University. I graduated Magna Cum Laude, and as a member of the Dean’s Honour Roll.

Outside of law, I enjoy exercising, basketball, being a dog dad, and eating at hole in the wall restaurants.
