Two things come to mind; crunching formula's in the lab or hitting badminton birdies on the court with Tom.

Director of Supplier Relationships

I am an Italian native who has always had a great passion for travelling and exploring new cultures. My favourite destinations include London, New York City and, of course, Toronto. I am super curious about everything and anything, and really like to learn new things - one would not be surprised to know that I read random Wikipedia articles anytime I can. When I was a kid, my dream was to become a banker… Unfortunately I have realized this might never happen (sigh!), so I now wish to open a café instead. I am an absolute foodie – I spend hours cooking and love watching cookery programmes just as much as I like eating out and discovering new restaurants. Other passions of mine are biking, foreign languages, architecture, design and… hazelnut gelato!

You may find the things that I do strange, but I'm not weird at all, I'm just a designer! Just to name a few things, I'm that person who stops midway while walking through a mall to feel the material of store signage. I also buy products only to keep the packaging. I'm a hoarder with collections of catalogues under my bed. I even go as far as checking my pantone swatches before going clothes shopping. Can you blame me? I want to make sure my shirt and socks match!

Plant Director

I never liked taking the easy route because I believe that hard work produces the best results. I love challenges, that’s why I have never been happy with anything I've accomplished. In life, what you really want will never come easy. I get bored easily from following a routine; except when it comes to food and destroying myself at the gym. I'm a very cozy person, and my biggest happiness is when I'm at home. I love all animals, and my favorites are elephants and camels. If I could be an animal, I would choose to be a camel.

Hopped across the pond from London, England for a true Canadian experience…EH! Born and bred in the city of London, I am a true city boy at heart. You can take the boy out of the city but not the city out of the boy. I’m excited to make Toronto my new playground! A normal graphic design day for me consists of designing. Re-designing. Bang head against wall. Edit. Re-edit and edit some more, but I wouldn’t change a thing. In graphic design no day is the same. I wonder what tomorrow will bring...

Director of Web Technology

A geek at heart and an artist by trade. Or vice versa.
As a kid I loved playing with gizmos. And with cardboard boxes. I would spend my afternoons creating complicated machines – which I called clocks – using rope, broken wind up toys and lots of boxes. I loved the endless possible ways to connect them and the steam-punk aesthetics of the finished contraption. My frustrated parents, tripping over my living room sized creations, used to point out it was a waste of money to buy me toys if I just wanted to play with their boxes. Then they had a great idea: they bought me a Lego set. Best present ever, including the awesome box it came in. Nowadays I play with gizmos for a living. And with cardboard boxes.

Head of Logistics

Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the HOL at a place called Deciem.

In west Nottinghamshire born and raised
On the football pitch was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
And all shootin some football outside of the school
When a couple of friends shouted "hey what's up Ricks"
Would you like to work at Deciem as the Head of Logistics
It took one little night and my mom said carpe diem
I said "I'm movin' to join a family at a place called Deciem"

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said abnormal with dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was fun
But I thought 'Nah, forget it' - "Yo, holmes to Deciem"

I pulled up to Unit Four about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cabbie "Yo holmes smell ya later"
I looked at my family
I could finally see them
And sit on my seat as the HOL of Deciem.

INVENTORY, REGISTRATION & CUSTOMER HAPPINESS MANAGER

Born and raised in Seoul, went to school in South Dakota for a bit then moved to Kitchener-Waterloo, but ended up finishing my undergrad in Seattle as I chose rain over snow for less miserable college winter life. Love being out with friends, wandering around random places, cruising on my penny board when it's sunny and breezy out. A very, very passionate shopper and that only leaves myself with countless pjs. For now, I've planned to end my rave life at Tomorrowland before turning 31. Anyone join me?

Everytime I look outside, I see movement. Everytime I listen to the sounds of the busy city, I hear music. Everytime I converse with people, I get inspired. And everytime I open my eyes in the morning, I first think at the new day as a challenge to surpass myself. I look at life as art itself. You should try; it's surprising what you could find!

While life is what’s keeping me grounded, the heart is where I’m at home.

I naturally gravitate towards insightful conversations where learning is a constant. Apart from books, I tend to educate myself that way.

Inspired by the people I love and care about, I also make my own recipes whenever I feel creative ( some have become house favourites to this day! ). Not only does cooking create a special bond within my family, I actually find it liberating to discover something new, and a way to express my affection.

Through hard work, I aim to be a successful entrepreneur one day.

Repeat Azkaban offender, curly hair enthusiast, doughnut eater, gymnastics lover, book worm, fluent in sarcasm and a made up language called Backslang! (Think it's a British thing).

I smile a lot, I'm always happy and I talk too much. I've known this since I was a child as it was usually the parents day topic every year. If I'm unnaturally quiet it means I'm probably eating, reading or I'm sad. I love walks in the woods even though I'm a city girl. I can never decide what my favourite colour is. I've watched every episode of Big Bang Theory and Fresh Prince. David Tennant was my favourite Doctor (Doctor Who). I live in cosy knitwear and trainers. I love Disney classics!

Tiny girl with a big smile and even bigger dreams! I have three weaknesses (OR STRENGTHS), beauty, nature and dessert.

I love mixing stuff together to find new and magical things, I was mixing up polymer nanocomposites a while ago, now I am mixing cosmetics, and I love mixing up ingredients in the kitchen too (total foodie, YES!). You might find me on my desk talking to myself, scrunching my face all weird and funny. That’s ok, I’m probably concentrating with a lot of heart and mind.

Life needs to be fun and adventurous, so taking risks, and always choosing the more challenging option is my number 1 rule!

Bonjour chers lecteurs et lectrices!

I was born and raised in our nation’s capital, the city of the Parliament and beaver tails… Oh and the Rideau Canal! I decided to make the move from the medium sized city of Ottawa to the large pool that is the 6ix; one of the best decisions of my life. Musically, I chose to not remember anything past 2008 and if it was acceptable I’d dress every day like I was an extra on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I am a self-proclaimed product junkie, a The Office connoisseur, a red wine enthusiast, an amateur dancer and a foodie at heart!

On a more serious note, my life is truly fulfilled by quality time spent with my family and friends. I believe that the core of my knowledge has been acquired from listening to others and their stories. Engaging with different people is something I’m passionate about and I value human
interaction for what it is and for what it can provide in terms of self-growth. (The deep portion of my bio ��)!

Education: University of Ottawa Communications and French Literature with a certificate inBroadcast Journalism.

Lover of chocolate, desserts and all things beauty and skincare. I love traveling the world, spending time with friends and family, binge-watching Netflix and walking pointlessly through shopping malls. I have always loved working with and learning about people. I am motivated by my need to constantly learn and challenge myself. If I'm not hard at work, you’ll find me over-thinking about everything and anything.

Regulatory Guru

I make people follow the rules for a living so naturally, I'm a ton of fun at parties. I hope you laughed at that because I've been told that it's my only good regulatory affairs joke, although that's never stopped me from making them. I've worked in regulatory affairs since I finished university and every time I think I've seen it all, there is a new challenge waiting around the corner. It's probably the part of my job that I enjoy the most. Outside of work, I love science, dogs, sports, quilting, the outdoors, adventures, and compliance.

Education: University of Guelph, University of Surrey

Ambassador

Some of my favourite things are: chicken wings, binge eating salads after a late night out, writing with a hot cup of tea in one hand, writing while it's raining outside with a hot cup of tea in one hand, doing karaoke in my head, and dancing. In fact, I'm probably dancing whenever I think nobody's watching. But then I turn around and people are indeed watching.
