I was born and raised in Vancouver and heavily involved in community sports from a young age. I have always taken an interest in Law and I am greatly enjoying the opportunity I have recently had at Myers Mcmurdo Karp and Patey.
I have a diverse set of tools developed from my involvement in charitable organizations, community sports and running my own business. Those tools have been strongly transferrable to Criminal Law and helped me enjoy my articles thus far.
My unique set of principals who have diverse practices and tools for success have greatly helped my education and growth within Criminal Law.
I have recently passed my professional legal training course examinations for the purposes of being admitted to the Bar; however I will remain an articled student until my call date of May 15, 2014.
