If you were not a lawyer, what career would you have chosen?

I would have liked to work for a hedge fund. I am fascinated by that kind of entrepreneurial environment where innovation, analytical thinking and risk management drive performance.

Is there something about you that we would be surprised to learn?

During my spare time as an undergrad, I taught myself how to code, data-scrape and complete statistical analysis. I used these skills to develop a system for sports analytics.

Is there an organization that means a lot to you?

I am very involved with local Jewish organizations. Supporting my local Jewish community and fighting antisemitism are very important to me. At Osgoode Hall, I lead our Jewish Law Students’ Association. At Western University, I was very involved with our Hillel chapter and the Chabad house.
