Cameron received his B.A.Sc. in Engineering Science (Aerospace Option) at the University of Toronto in 2008, and his M.A.Sc. in Aerospace Science and Engineering from the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies in 2009. From 2006-2010, Cameron was Chief Structural Engineer on the Human-Powered Ornithopter Project, responsible for the design and testing of the composite structure of the Snowbird. On August 2nd, 2010, Project Manager Todd Reichert flew the Snowbird for a duration of 19.3 seconds and length of 145 metres, making it the world's first successful human-powered (and piloted) ornithopter.

Cameron is currently still involved with the Engine-Powered Ornithopter Project at UTIAS, as well as the U of T  Human-Powered Vehicles Design Team as composites/structural consultant (the team currently holds the collegiate human-powered land speed record and took 1st place overall in the 2011 ASME Human-Powered Vehicle Challenge).
