We are delighted to welcome Gilbert da Silva as EFMF’s new Site Manager.

An Edmontonian, Gilbert graduated with a Degree in English Literature from the U of A. Working at the Citadel Theatre, he rose to the position of Manager of Operations. He then transitioned into sports and worked with the Oilers at the Rexall Place and Rogers Place arenas as their day-to-day Operations Manager.

For the past two years he has been working on cooperative housing development.

A playwright in his own time, Gilbert also volunteered for several years on our Party crew.

Please join me in giving him a warm welcome at the EFMF.
