Currently, I am in my third year of Communications and media studies and Political Science and I am extremely excited to be part of the amazing CUSS team! I have always wanted to join CUSS but finally found the courage to join this year! A bit about myself: I am very passionate about photography, videography, music, traveling and learning new languages but most importantly connecting with people in any way or form. I am looking forward to working with the team itself and communicating with not only the third years but everyone who is interested to know what CUSS has to offer!

I am a student in the Communications and Media Studies program with a minor in French. In my first year at Carleton, I joined CUSS as a general member. I went to each event all year and I eventually became a Second Year Representative. I am super excited to represent my fellow students one again as a Third Year Representative! In my spare time I enjoy; exploring our beautiful city, going to concerts, walking around downtown and attending hockey games. I LOVE food, photography shopping, as well as watching classic movies, 90’s sitcoms and musicals. During my spare time on campus, you’ll find me at Ollie’s or at the Page Break in MacOdrum. If you see me around campus, feel free to approach me or feel free to add/message me on social media! I chose Carleton and CoMS because of their excellent reputation for the Communications and Journalism programs. I also chose to study CoMs at Carleton because it was geared towards my interests. In the future I would love to work in the communications section of my government department. I look forward to meeting you all! I encourage you to come out to the events and join us this year.

Joining CUSS was an amazing way for me to get involved with Communications and Media Studies. Over the past couple of years, I immediately fell in love with my program and contemplated how I would incorporate COMS in a professional work environment. My growing passion for competitive gaming governed my decision and cements my present work in eSports. My work experience began with building the foundation of communications and marketing strategies for Tespa Carleton (Carleton’s gaming club). Branching off Tespa Carleton, I shifted my expertise to marketing in eSports broadcasting. I currently run all communications for a local broadcasting organization in Ottawa called Streamland. I am thankful to be apart of an amazing program and an amazing team which has provided me the advantages and ambition which has assisted in making me the hard working and ethically driven man I am to this day. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I look forward to meeting all the new faces in COMS.
