Personal Statement: Over the years, I have become acutely aware of the importance of facilitating conversations in our society. The theatre provides a unique environment for these discussions through the interaction of the stage and the audience. As an intellectual property lawyer, I understand that intellectual and intangible capital – all the wonderful stuff that we can’t see but can make us feel – is critical to cultivate, as well as the environment in which we do so. As an entrepreneur and venturer with a long term perspective, I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the stewardship of Shaw’s dynamic community and its longevity. And as an Indo-Canadian born and raised on the East Coast, ensuring that the communities I call my own are enhanced through the participation of diverse views and perspectives is a core value – one I share with The Shaw. I wholly embrace our tradition of rebellious rabblerousing and revelry.
