Biography

I chose to work in a skilled trade because I want to be more active than just sitting in an office. I have always had a passion for machines and mechanics and I want to build a career in that field. My ambition is to start my own business with a mobile diesel mechanics unit to repair different machines on site.

I heard about the skills competitions at my training centre and decided to find out more. When I learned that there was not only a Skills Canada National Competition but also a WorldSkills Competition, I knew that I wanted to be part of this great adventure.

Interesting Fact

The person who has inspired me the most is my father. I have learned so much from him. When I was growing up, I spent a lot of time working with him and asking lots of questions. My father always took time to explain things to me and I truly believe his advice has helped me get to where I am today.

Essential Skills

In heavy equipment service, one of the Essential Skills is working with others. Communicating and helping one another can greatly improve the quality of team work and help to avoid mistakes.
