I grew up in Vancouver, BC, and am a content creator at heart. I enjoy creating other types of video content on my personal YouTube channel and through my podcast. I also love riding my electric longboard during the summer months. I appreciate good food, good people, and sunshine!

Travel style: relaxing or adventure? Relaxing. I want to sit back, relax, and take it easy. However, I don’t want to lie on the beach all day. A nice blend of a relaxing and laid-back pace would be ideal.

Favourite digital tool:
I am a big fan of Adobe Illustrator as a creative tool. I appreciate that it is meant to create vector graphics but can be used for other tasks, such as layouts and design. None of the other Adobe programs offer this balance within their tools. When it comes to marketing, I am a big fan of HubSpot! It’s an excellent tool for marketers and companies, but also great for sales teams and customer service.
If I had to eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be: Sushi! I can’t get enough of it. I ate so much sushi that a sushi restaurant I would frequent named a sushi combo after me.
Favourite movie: Inglorious Basterds, written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. When it was first released, I watched the movie six times in one week! It’s the only movie to this day that I can watch on repeat.
A cause I’m passionate about: I appreciate community events and have a strong passion for bringing people together. One of my favourite events is Creative Mornings, a free monthly lecture and breakfast event. For over eight years, I volunteered with Creative Mornings Vancouver and am thankful for the experience and the people I connected with. Creative Mornings events take place in most major cities around the world. Be sure to check and see if there is a chapter in your area!
