Cristian graduated from the University of Toronto with high-distinction as a double major in Environmental Management and Criminology and Socio-Legal Studies in May of 2016. During his studies, Cristian developed an interest in sustainability because he believes it provides a unique opportunity to create positive global change that will forever influence the lives of millions across the world.

In addition to his studies, Cristian assumed an intern position with the Town of Halton Hills in their Office of Sustainability. During his internship, Cristian worked on initiatives such as the Mayor’s Community Energy Plan and the Halton Hills State of Sustainability 2017 to help document the progress made by the Town of Halton Hills in terms of their sustainable progress. 

Cristian aspires to one day become a chief sustainability officer of a Fortune 500 corporation. This position would afford him the opportunity to implement sustainable business practices at a large company. This position would facilitate the opportunity to collaborate with representatives from influential companies with the ambition to champion superior sustainable business practices on a global scale. The MScSM program will afford him the opportunity to collaborate with future leaders in the sustainability management field while at the same time, providing him with a strong foundation of management and sustainable business principles. Cristian believes that as large corporations continue to provide increased public advocacy for the implementation of widespread sustainable business practices, they will inspire bottom-up change from communities that will discover the positive transformation that sustainable practices can provide within their community.

Outside of the academic sphere, Cristian enjoys playing team-based sports specifically, soccer and football. In addition to participating in sports, Cristian is huge European soccer and Toronto sports fan with the Maple Leafs and Raptors holding a special place in his heart.
