Alumni Spotlight
Patrick Lor, BA’90, EMBA’01

In pursuit of better educational opportunities for their children, the Lor family immigrated to Canada from Hong Kong in 1972. Hopeful that their son would become an engineer, doctor or lawyer, Patrick’s father, an independent grocery store owner, coached him to “do as I say, not as I do.” Today, Patrick Lor is a tech startup veteran leading innovations and through his newest venture, sparrow.ai, is using artificial intelligence to generate biographies.
