Terry, who is currently completing a major research project for the grant of a doctoral degree in law at the University of Alberta, epitomizes what the PEIF Fund organization is about. Focused on art, invention, and knowledge transfer, Terry hopes to inspire Canadians and internationals to do more than the confines of their day jobs allow them.

Terry's decision to join the organization in its goal of mentoring Canadian and international professionals who have exhibited a passion for social justice flows from his recognition of the importance of commitment to service and professional diversity among up and coming professionals. In Terry's words, "I decided to join the PEIF Fund because it is an initiative which celebrates talents and provides educational and other support to young individuals on their journeys to becoming fully realized professionals in their chosen fields. What attracted me most to the PEIF Fund is that it celebrates skills and talents and embraces creativity. As a professional myself who has embraced and nurtured his artistic talents, I look forward to sharing by experiences with others and providing knowledge, advice, motivation and support when needed."
Terry is looking forward to working with individuals who are passionate about the art of baking, who are invested in creativity, and are looking to grow and expand on their knowledge base. The PEIF Fund organization is pleased to welcome Terry into its fold, and looks forward to working with him towards encouraging more diversity and creativity in career choices.
