After spending a couple of years on the east coast of Canada in Halifax, I've recently made the move to Toronto. In the summer you can find me in northern Ontario leading canoe trips surrounded by spectacular scenery where I shoot white water on some amazing rivers and portage lake to lake. As soon as it gets cold again, I'm back to the city. I can't get enough of the NBA or anything related to it, obviously I root for my Toronto Raptors. Now I'm taking on the internship here at Trend Hunter where I plan to find and share as much innovative awesome stuff as I can.
