Nathan is a recent international development graduate from the University of Guelph currently taking time between his undergraduate and graduate studies. In the past, Nathan has worked with a variety of environmental non-governmental organizations, political organizations, and government agencies. He is currently working on developing the National International Development Students Association in the hopes of connecting the wide array of international development programs and students that exist across Canada. Specializing in environmental and economic development, Nathan spent the last year of his degree crafting two cap-stone papers titled “Zones of Exclusion: Geographies of Displacement and the Neoliberal Degradation of Urban Competitiveness” and “Moving Beyond the Discourse: A Critical View of Special Economic Zones and the ‘Shenzhen Model’ in the Global South”. Having minored in Hispanic Studies, Nathan spent a semester living and studying in Antigua, Guatemala and hopes to one day return to Latin America as a development professional.
