Having demonstrated leadership through a multitude of projects and renowned experiences, he has distinguished himself in many countries both during his academic years and in the business world.
Having successfully completed his bachelor's degree in computer science, he established his first commercial mission to Germany with the help of the MCUL. This three-week mission for the Montreal startup Vrvana was a success. The contacts are numerous, and the establishment of business partnerships are present. It is two years later, in November 2017 that Apple acquired the start up.

He also began his participation in numerous strategy case competitions and decided to continue his studies by starting a second MBA in Global Business. He took the opportunity to win several titles in strategic case competition. This includes a place, among more than 98 teams, in the GBC 2017 finals in Australia, a third position at the BFBW 2018 at the World Economic Forum in Davos, a first position for university outside Asia at the HKUST Global MBA Challenge 2017 in Hong Kong, a semi-final place at JMSB 2018 in Montreal, Entrepreneur’s Choice award at VCIC 2018 in Halifax and Analytical Awards at DGMC 2018 in Montreal.
