My life doesn't fit into a little box, and yet here I am trying to fit exactly what makes me unique into a literal little box on my computer screen. Let's just make a list, shall we?
- I'm Senior Editor of gamingexcellence.com
- I'm a photographer, specializing in live music and other events.
- I'm a novelist, as I've recently completed my first novel
- New to Toronto, moved here from Ottawa
- I hunt down trends like there's a bounty on their heads
That might do for now.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I'm the nerdiest guy ever to play organized ice hockey.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Finishing my first novel and still being passionate enough about storytelling and writing to start up on a sequel.
How do you define cool?
Anything that is unique, creative, and/or original. Something that attracts attention from the masses by having any of these qualities. Cool is also being yourself and not conforming yourself to what other people want from you.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Spending (wasting?) an ungodly amount of time surfing the internet.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
That it's a very organized site that is constantly updated and streaming tons of articles and data in a clear and user friendly way.
What is your favorite trend?
Anything nerdy, technological, pop culture related, or involving hockey.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
If I stumble across something that interests me, chances are there's at least one other person out there who would find it interesting too. Then I just type it up in an informal and fun sort of way.
How do you reset to be creative?
sleep, coffee, sleep, coffee, sleep, coffee, sleep, sleep, coffee, coffee. There's a trend for you!
What inspires or excites you?
Expressing myself creatively and sharing those creations with others.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
It will be the year of hindsight for the entire human race.
