I have always wanted to work and I am not satisfied when a job is complete.

It started with shoes. In the summer of Grade 7, I wanted a job. So I opened up Microsoft Word, typed up a resume with the guidance of my parents and I walked into town, determined to get a job.

I was hired.  Gould’s Shoes. Handed a dusting cloth, I was often tasked with cleaning the front room, and the back. I wanted more. I dusted hard, and cleaned well, so they gave me a shot at selling shoes. I did not want to sell a pair, I wanted to sell them all.  By the end of the summer I had sold 22 pairs in one day. I wanted more.

Fast forward to university. I immersed myself within startup ecosystems in both London, Ontario and Toronto. I earned an internship in management consulting, working with leading national brands, hustling to earn everyone’s respect. But I wanted more.

I leveraged my experience working with startups, in management consulting and as a student, I launched Amplify Solutions, a full-service marketing firm which connects brands to students on university and college campuses. I built the brand from a one man shop to a national organization with over 60 employees, in 7 months, learning exactly what drove student consumers to make a purchase. Amplify quickly became one of Canada’s fastest growing marketing firms.

I wanted more. I left school, because I was learning far more running a business than with my head in the books; practical experience. I became a leading youth marketer, whose insights are now featured in Forbes, Inc, Entrepreneur, Thrive Global, Prsuit and more.
