How long have you been in UBC Thunderbots?
Too long… Just kidding, I’ve been on the team for about a year and a half.

What made you want to join T-Bots?
Robots are cool.

What’s your favourite part about being on T-Bots?
I really enjoy all the competitions and competing with other teams all over the world. It’s fun and I don’t mind working under pressure.

What’s your most memorable moment?
I think the trip to Cyprus last year was quite memorable. I got to meet a lot of cool people and we placed Second overall in the competition. I did some on-the-spot maintenance during the competition too!

Other than UBC Thunderbots, what other hobbies do you have?
I have a lot of DIY projects that I like to work on. I’m currently working on a sustainability project. Other than that, I like to go fishing.
