From London Ontario, with a background in Musical Theatre and Film and Television acting. Travel, fashion and lifestyle are my favorite but I love finding a hot new tech trend.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Driving all the way across Canada, and back.
How do you define cool?
Effortlessly inspiring, and if someone or something passes the "I need to tell someone about this!" test.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
The amazing environment! Working somewhere that knows the perfect balance between work and play makes you want to put forward your best work.
How do you reset to be creative?
I put on some music that makes me want to dance, really, really loud.
