Adrien, his wife Amelia, and their two young daughters have lived in St. James for the past eight years. Amelia chairs the board of Linwood Daycare and Adrien dedicates time each year to coaching soccer at the Deer Lodge Community Centre.
Adrien's career has focused on building stronger communities. He currently works as Director of Strategy and Operations with Assiniboine Credit Union, which focuses on providing financial services that benefit people and the environment. Before joining Assiniboine Credit Union, he worked to improve the quality of social and affordable housing programming in Manitoba with the provincial department of Housing and Community Development.
After graduating from business school at the University of Manitoba, Adrien spent eight years working with community-based programs focused on preventing crime in Winnipeg's inner city and helping marginalized young people get good jobs. Adrien is also a songwriter and musician who has performed at major local venues and festivals.
Adrien believes Brian Pallister's reckless cuts have hurt schools and hospitals in our community. As the NDP candidate for St. James, he is committed to continuing his advocacy work and fighting for the needs of regular families.
