Board of Directors 2018-2019
"I am a student. More specifically, I am a Film Student in the Bachelor's of Film and Television Program here at the Trafalgar campus, and I love it! Being in this program and at Sheridan has exposed me to a plethora of creative opportunities and remarkable, genuinely wonderful individuals. Meeting, working, and collaborating with all of these cool people is an experience I want everybody at Sheridan to share. This is why one of my primary goals, and reasons for being a board director in the first place, is to inspire, encourage, and contribute to bringing people from different programs and different mediums together to collaborate on projects, ideas, and foster friendships. In doing this, I also want to raise school spirit; help us get out of our studios and study halls and come together for some shared experiences. What I love most about Sheridan is its ability to attract so many diverse and creative talents in one place. This is why I can wait to be a part of fostering a more collaborative and safe environment for such awesome people to work and learn in together."
Tell us a fun fact about you: Like many of my peers, I do a lot of side gigs to pay for school and living expenses in general, from composing music, editing sound for small films, or graphic design. However, one of the most surprising is that I am a licensed pyrotechnician. So come Canada Day, New years, and any other special occasion, you'll find me shooting off fireworks somewhere in Ontario (usually to music).
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?: If I could go anywhere in the world... it would be the world. I want to see all of it someday if possible. Suffice to say, I am the "throw a dart at a map and see where it lands" type of person.
If you had to watch one (and ONLY one) series on Netflix for the rest of your life, what would it be? Sure, ask the film student if he could only watch one Netflix series for the rest of his life; what torture. Regardless, I'd have to say Stranger Things (if we're sticking to true Netflix originals here). The reasoning being that it is such a well rounded, nostalgic coming of age story with an excellent narrative and great music. It also pays homage to many Sci-Fi movies and tropes from the 80's and 90's, making it a bit of an education in Film itself. I know I already mentioned the music, but as a music person I also love the retro digital, and analog synthesis present in the score similar to Vangelis and Blade Runner. So if I all I could watch on Netflix is that; I wouldn't mind too much."
