Steven Paolasini grew up in Grimsby, Ontario; a small town in the Niagara region. Upon graduating from high school, Steven attended McGill University to complete a bachelor of chemical engineering. It was the diverse and cosmopolitan environment of Montreal which helped Steven become a libertarian supporter and realize the need to embrace diversity by protecting individual rights and freedoms.
Steven was heavily involved in student government during his time at McGill and found his passion to be serving and helping people. He is also an active volunteer with several animal rescue organizations and groups that advocate against Breed Specific Legislation. After graduation, Steven moved to Calgary, Alberta to pursue a career in the oil & gas industry. Recently, Steven co-founded QuadRipple Tech, the first marketing agency of its kind which provides marketing services exclusively for technical and engineering companies.
“The world’s a big place, and everyone is an individual with unique preferences. Embracing diversity instead of opposing it is the only fair and sustainable option. Everyone has the right to choose how to live and it’s absolutely nobody’s business to stop them, so long as they are not infringing on the rights’ of others in the process.”
