Occupation: Senior Technical Analyst at BlackBerry
College:

Got my degree in photography from LCC in 95 before moving to Ontario. In 2000 I went back to school at Trios and got a handful of computer certifications. Ongoing tech training (400 classes in the past seven years).

Life Story & Comments:

Since high school I have had over 30 different jobs including baker, crash test photographer, day care, nuclear technician, collections officer, industrial control panel designer and currently doing senior tech support for BlackBerry.

I have two kids. The first was my son (who I didn't meet until he was 2) Andrew. His conception is its own story. My second was my daughter, Katina who was conceived in the 5th year of my first marriage.

In 2011 I remarried and gained two more children, Zach and Emily. There's lots that I could say here about how I met Vicky and how we've blended our families but those are things we can talk about at the reunion this summer.

I moved to Ontario to marry my Canadian girlfriend in '96. The marriage ended in '07 and we're back to being good friends again.

From '89 through '91 I had my own public access TV show while I was studying photography at LCC.

There are bunches more things I could write about like hobbies and travels but then what would I have to talk about at the reunion.

High School Memories:

One of the best memories was going to GLIMUN with the rest of the Model UN club and experiencing my first ever Jello bath tub.

I remember making Sev runs during break between classes and returning to class with assorted junk food.

I remember how jumpy Paraj was right before testing for each belt in karate and how much fun it was surprising him then.

I remember getting drunk exactly one time during high school and embarrassing myself so badly that I didn't drink again till my 21st birthday.

There were good times in high school but life has gotten so much better since then.
