Answering the age-old question “What do you do with an arts degree?"

No Such Thing as an Unassisted Goal

Over my four years at Waterloo, one of the things that I learned about myself, that I’ll definitely remember, is that I like to be busy.

Somewhere during second year I realized that I like t​o be busy.

My Romp Through East Africa In Search Of Personal Growth

After a fulfilling 5 years at the University of Waterloo, most of my class mates found their way into full time positions and began their lives as young professionals. Whether it was in search of passion, pride, money or knowledge; we were hungry for success and needed to maximize the degrees we now held.
