Compliance Officer/Guest Manager
I became involved with Extra Life after meeting several members of the team at another event that I was volunteering at, where eventually my wife (Clara) and a very close friend (Lisa) dragged me into the team. It has been nothing but a great experience since then, from playing games with other team members and fundraisers, engaging and interacting with guests, and helping fundraise for the Stollery Children’s Hospital. In addition to Extra Life, I also have experience volunteering for other non-profit organizations where I manage Guest relations, as well as create and negotiate contracts. It is through these volunteering opportunities that I was able to meet great people, create new friendships, and continue to find a passion outside of work, and continue to volunteer where I am able.
Outside of volunteering, I do enjoy playing games, such as NHL, Civilization VI, Overwatch, and Among Us. I also tend to get absorbed into gacha games like Genshin Impact and Fate Grand Order, where I simply must keep rolling for the chance to get that one character. I also enjoy many kinds of Asian food, but especially sushi and Korean fried chicken, and have started taking a liking to experimenting with food and cooking. One day, I’ll be able to make a wide range of delicious food without a recipe!
