What is your perfect meal?
Ideally something homemade enjoyed amongst close friends and family.
What is your deepest obsession outside of work?
Sports. I am both an avid hockey and soccer fan suffering diligently alongside all other Canucks and Liverpool fans. I also love playing golf and hockey in my spare time.
What is your favorite location to travel in BC?
Tofino. I have yet to find a place that posses all of the same breathtaking qualities as Tofino. Whether it is exploring the old growth forests, fishing the coastal waters, or watching the waves roll in during a storm, there is always something to ignite your inner sense of awe.
