A little more about me: I am in my fifth year of my software engineering degree. I am currently a co-op student for Deloitte as a Business Technology Analyst. I hope to take my technology skills and my passion for entrepreneurship to one day work as a consultant or manager focusing on international business development or professional sports industry. I am a strong supporter of youth leadership and entrepreneurship. This is my first time being involved in student government and I want to support initiatives that make a difference in the development of students and promote equality. I enjoy traveling, meetings new people and exploring new places.

A little bit more about me:“ I’m a fifth year computer science coop student with a diverse set of interests. Just as comfortable debugging software as I am climbing at the rock wall or debating at council meetings. In past years I’ve been the Computer Science Representative and VicePresident Internal for the UNBSU. Currently, I am in the first of two years as both a Fredericton Student Senator, and a Student Union Beverage Services Board Member. I am also on the UNB Board of Governors, the Brunswickan Publishing Board, and the SUB Board of Directors for just this year. Outside of the Student Union you can find me around Harrison House, where I’m a returning proctor with ResLife and coordinate the Healthy Active Living LLC. I’m also a member of the UNB Rock & Ice club, the Peer Support Centre, the Computer Science Association, and the Ludlow Hall Brazilian JiuJitsu club. Feel free to ask me any questions about the university, the student union, my faculty, residence, the currie center, or any of the boards I sit on. Even if you don’t know what questions to ask, or have absolutely no questions and just want to say hi, I would be more than happy to talk to you! ”

I volunteer at the Brunswickan, hospital, CHSR-FM, and Rogers TV. I also sit on a number of senate committees.

My name is actually pronounced “akay,” but its okay if you thought it was “ekey” (I get that a lot). Feel free to message me with any questions you have. I look forward to a great year representing you in the Senate. Hope to see you around!

A little more about me:
As a great 20th Century philosopher -- Popeye the Sailor Man -- once put it: "I yam what I yam."
As both a Senator and former member of the Board of Governors, I have fought for more collegial governance, better administrative transparency, and most importantly, I have fought to procure much-needed funding for the academy by making UNB's spending priorities more rational. I will continue to fight for these things in the future. If there are any other issues that you would like to see addressed as well, feel free to get in touch. I am always happy to meet with fellow students and chart a better course forward
