Space, the final frontier..... my favourite TV show got me interested in science and engineering as a kid. My career path has taken me into RF/microwaves, telecommunications and satellite engineering, but I still keep related hobbies such as amateur astronomy and remote controlled aircraft. Always wanting to better myself, I am currently pursuing a graduate diploma in Engineering Management from the University of Ottawa I have extensive SATCOM industry experience in many engineering roles.
