Powtown Post guest post on Vancouver is Awesome

Published 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

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

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

Happy Mother’s Day, Momsie

In honour of Mother's day, I wanted to share some of my favourite moments I've had with my Mom. This photo was taken in October of 2006, when my mother and I went on a backpacking trip through France and Italy. I still can't believe she went backpacking, and neither can my Dad. Above, we … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day, Momsie

My Olympics Project: The Olys

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 … Continue reading My Olympics Project: The Olys

My 2010 Olympic Experience

I can't believe it taken me so long to write about this. Mind you, every single 17 days of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics has been a whirlwind, and life seems comparably dull now that it has come and gone. It would have been much easier if I did a few posts throughout the Olympics, … Continue reading My 2010 Olympic Experience

Shaking things up

Some of you may have already heard that I recently started working part-time for my older brother Wesley, who is a real estate agent for RE/MAX Crest Realty Westside. I am assisting with his marketing efforts, including everything from social networking sites, e-mail newsletters, and design projects like postcards and other direct mail pieces. My … Continue reading Shaking things up
