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 bit biased in thinking that Urbandig is ridiculously awesome (you … Continue reading Urbandig’s Locavore Tour with Anthony Nicalo, CEO of Foodtree
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 list of what makes them awesome, and why I love … Continue reading Why I Love HootSuite (And Why I Want to Work There)
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 never built up the courage to stand up in front … Continue reading Public Speaking Isn’t So Bad After All
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 my friend Jerra. She received a DSLR camera as a … Continue reading Weekend Photography Workshop at VPW
I’m your girl. This is my dream job. I want it so bad I can taste it. Choose me. You won’t be disappointed. See Flickr for the full list of locations in the above photo. Continue reading Hey, Flight Centre.
A few years ago, I won a Pentax K100D, my first DSLR (like Mother, like Daughter!), and that is when I started to fall in love with photography. I didn’t know a thing at first, except for maybe the rule of thirds, but I happened to take decent pictures now and again without even really trying. I taught myself, along with a little help from … Continue reading The Switch from Pentax K100D to Nikon D90
For the past few weeks, I have been doing some contract work at AdHack. It started out as an internship, and I was to write some case studies on the results of past clients who had used AdHack’s services, but it turned into something more. The Olys When the case studies were almost finished, James suggested doing an Olympic ad contest over the course of … Continue reading My Olympics Project: The Olys
In honour of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games coming to Vancouver, I thought I should do a blog post somewhat dedicated to the event. I’m getting pretty amped for the Games to start in February, and I thought this might help some of those people who maybe aren’t that excited about the Olympics (yet). I have had this version of O Canada by Classified running … Continue reading O Canada!
A little while ago I told you about working for my brother Wes, and doing his marketing, well, I’m also working with my brother Jordan at Tell Ten Friends. I know. It’s complicated. But our family makes a really great team. It’s not always a “great minds think alike” situation, but we all bring something valuable to the table and we work well together. At … Continue reading Tell Ten Friends. Do it.
After a pretty lame Saturday, I decided that I better do something productive with my Sunday. So I did. I ran 10.6km at Burnaby Lake with my good friends Liz and Di, and I went for a walk and did some shopping with my friend Sheralyn downtown, taking photos all along the way. I felt like I had been neglecting my camera lately, so I … Continue reading Granville Island Night Photowalk
