The world of business is complex and full of opportunities. In my spare time I enjoy analyzing case studies of both successful and failed corporations to see why things played out the way they did. My three favourite business magazines are: The Economist, Harvard Business Review, and Canadian Business. My three favourite business books of all time are: In Search of Excellence, Blue Ocean Strategy, and McKinsey’s Marvin Bower.
I’ve been interested in the study of celestial objects since I was little. Space is nature’s laboratory, and we get to see all the fundamental forces of the universe play out on the grandest scale. I’m not a physics major, but feel that everyone should try to get at least a basic understanding of the universe we live in. Make sure you google these three images if you haven’t seen them: The Orion Nebula, The Hubble Deep Field, and the E42 in the Eagle Nebula.
Basketball is my favourite sport to play. I was the captain of my high school team, and have continued to play for fun to this day. My natural position is shooting guard, but can play point or small forward as well. My favourite player is Michael Jordan, and my favourite team is the Los Angeles Lakers – even when MJ was playing.
I first became a fan of the Vancouver Canucks during the West Coast Express era, and have been hooked ever since. My favourite player was Ryan Kesler (until he got traded to Anaheim). As of this season my new favourite player is Henrik Sedin. Now all I have to do is convince him to shoot more!
