I was born and raised in Calgary. I love sports - golf, hockey, cricket, squash, tennis, soccer and baseball. I'm into smooth jazz, movies, and reading philosophy.

I am an Assistant Professor of Law at the UCalgary's Faculty of Law.

This fall I will be teaching Contracts, Administrative Law, and Immigration & Refugee Law.

I have published a book entitled Renewable Energy in Canada - Building a Sustainable Future. My research interest is renewable energy, although I was raised in an oil and gas family.
