The coolest things I've done in my career are:
I got to “direct” the Governor of the Bank of Canada playing himself in a skit as the host of a jeopardy style game-show centered on understanding his metaphors of the economy
I developed a monitoring system for Canadian intra-city transportation prices that helped reduce forecast error for Canadian inflation
I helped organize a year of an undergraduate case competition focusing on macroeconomic policy recommendations
If I could have a super power it would be:
Super speed. It would make sure I have plenty of time to relax.
I'm a "closet" fan of:
Watching speedrunners on Twitch
The nerdiest thing I do in my spare time is:
Watch bad movies then listen to podcasts about the bad movies.
Three things still on my bucket list are:
Watch a Patriots game live
Get a Wikipedia page
Be able to answer a question with “don’t worry, I know a guy"
My past experience includes:
I worked in the oil field in Alberta before going to university where I completed a BA Honors in economics at the University of Alberta. I then worked at The Bank of Canada for 2 years as a research assistant where I was responsible for monitoring Canadian macro data, mainly inflation, labour markets and the housing market. I also assisted in research on global value chains and their impact on Canadian prices, minimum wage in Canada, labour market churn and impacts of the trade war on inflation.
I then attended Queen’s University to earn a master’s degree in economics. I joined the team here as a data engineer in the spring of 2020.
