Powtown Post guest post on Vancouver is Awesome

Wow, I have not written anything on here in a long time. Where did the last four years go? I hate to use the word "busy," but it's most likely because I have been far too busy writing for about three or four other websites. One of them is my day job, the others are my side jobs, and … Continue reading Published on Vancouver Is Awesome

2012: Onward and Upward

Instead of jumping right into resolutions for 2012, I am first going to take a look back at 2011. Not in hindsight, mind you, but rather to reflect on the things I was proud of in 2011, and to set goals on what I can think about improving on for the year to come. Hat … Continue reading 2012: Onward and Upward

Urbandig’s Locavore Tour with Anthony Nicalo, CEO of Foodtree

On Friday, August 19 (on Day 3 of Grow Conference), I joined Anthony Nicalo, the CEO of Foodtree, on his "Locavore" tour for the Urbandig iPhone App, along with about 10 other hungry individuals, to experience some unpretentious, but gourmet food, in and around Gastown, Chinatown, and Railtown. I must disclose that I am a … Continue reading Urbandig’s Locavore Tour with Anthony Nicalo, CEO of Foodtree

Why I Love HootSuite (And Why I Want to Work There)

I love HootSuite. And if you use social media and don't already love them too, you WILL. I use HootSuite, along with many of the "geeks" I know, to manage my different social media accounts, but I mainly use it for Twitter and Facebook Pages. So, I thought I'd throw together a totally unordered, no-ulterior-motives-at-all … Continue reading Why I Love HootSuite (And Why I Want to Work There)

Public Speaking Isn’t So Bad After All

It's been a very long time since I last had to do a presentation in front of people, either at school, or at work. I used to have to do them all the time, not that I enjoyed it one bit. I go to a lot of conferences, or "unconferences" in Vancouver, but I have … Continue reading Public Speaking Isn’t So Bad After All

Weekend Photography Workshop at VPW

This weekend I took part in an intensive weekend photography workshop at Vancouver Photo Workshops (VPW). Key word - Intensive. Our classes were Saturday and Sunday from 10am-5pm with an hour break for lunch, and not a moment was spared to pack our brains full of photography knowledge. I signed up for the course with … Continue reading Weekend Photography Workshop at VPW

Contiki Holidays VIP Euro Bash

Last night I attended the Contiki Holidays VIP Euro Bash at V Lounge in Yaletown. What. A. Party! And I'm not just saying that because one of my best girlfriends, Sheralyn, was a huge factor in making it the success that it was. (And she did happen to be the one that invited me!) Contiki … Continue reading Contiki Holidays VIP Euro Bash

Best of 2010

It's a little late, but what the heck. I've never done a full year recap on my blog - only a summer recap in photos - probably because it's very time-consuming. But this year was pretty special, with a lot of news-worthy items to share, so... let's get started. January I did a contract gig … Continue reading Best of 2010

Riot Fashion Theatre

A few weeks ago, I attended the Riot fashion show at Guilt & Co. My good friend (and hairdresser) Stacey, and her co-worker Amber were a couple of the models, so I brought along my camera to take a few shots for them. I didn't really care at first about getting the traditional "runway shots," … Continue reading Riot Fashion Theatre
