Tanner came to Toronto to study behavioural neuroscience at UTSC with Dr. Rutsuko Ito. He will begin his Ph.D. in Psychology shortly, upon successful completion of his M.A. As an undergrad, he was president of the chess club at Carleton College. He played board one on the team that took home Top Small School and Biggest Upset prizes at the 2014 Pan-American Intercollegiate Championship, but also
suffered a humbling 3.5-0.5 defeat at the hands of the University of Toronto. Now north of the border himself, Tanner is excited that the got to join forces with HHCC as a member and player last year and as an exec this year.

He appreciates how much support he had from the club and the execs last year, and he looks forward to the opportunity to give back and contribute to positive experiences for the club and its members.
