  Michael Andres    VP Finance   Mike is a fourth year operations in the BSF program. He grew up in Truro, Nova Scotia, the home of Stanfield’s. After high school he went to McGill University and obtained a Bachelor of Commerce. Perhaps it is this experience that made him think he was suitable to be VP Finance. During his summers while attending McGill, Mike started planting trees in Nova Scotia. After graduating he continued to plant trees but made the move out west to BC to make the big bucks. Planting gave him the opportunity to see almost every corner of this massive province and to meet a wonderful group of people, it also showed him that he wanted to work in the woods but maybe not as a labourer picking up dimes and quarters several thousand times a day. Fortunately for UBC’s Faculty of Forestry these thoughts led him to where he is now, taking up his favorite seat in the computer lab and dominating action in the ping pong room.   fustreasurer@gmail.com
