et a grandi à Barrie (Ontario).
Il s’est enrôlé dans les Forces
canadiennes en 2003 en tant
qu’opérateur de sonar immé-

miné ses études secondaires.
Dès le plus jeune âge, il a
découvert en quoi consistait
la vie militaire, car son beau-
père et son père servaient
dans les FC.
   À           bord          du
NCSM  Vancouver,              le

superviseur du contrôle

bâbord pendant la croisière
d’endurance du navire et
l’exercice SOUTHPLOY. Il a
réussi à accomplir toutes les
fonctions opérationnelles et
administratives, et les fonc-
tions de supervision bien
qu’il n’ait pas suivi la forma-
tion officielle du NQ6A. En
