I graduated from Ryerson University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and am a York University MBA graduate. I have served in a variety of senior positions with General Electric Canada, Enbala Power, and the Ontario Energy Board. I am currently the Federal Member of Parliament for Mississauga Centre and a Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs (Consular Affairs).
As long time community activist, I am very passionate about my involvement with local organizations and causes. I was a member of the community editorial board of the Toronto Star where I was authored columns on a wide range of provincial and federal issues. My work has also been published in the Huffington Post. Among many of my activities, I have worked tirelessly to support initiatives that empower new Canadians through social and economic integration.
Having previously served as the Member of Parliament for Mississauga—Erindale from 2006 to 2008, I offered my constituents a strong voice on both local and national issues as the Liberal Critic for Natural Resources, as well as Citizenship and Immigration.
