George originally joined Make A Change Canada in 2010. Besides teaching in our online programs and designing workshops on emerging and innovative technology topics, George helps guide the development of our web and digital training content, ensuring its currency and relevancy to industry and employer needs. With a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Simon Fraser University, George has a keen interest in organizational governance and international relations. George has travelled far and wide to many corners of the world where he has enjoyed sipping a coffee in Lviv, Ukraine, delivering coding workshops in Yerevan, Armenia, and finding his way out of a labyrinth of heat-soaked ruins in Pafos, Cyprus. Closer to home, George can be found partaking in the odd anthropological observation on the humans of Vancouver or riding his bike from point A to point B.
