I'm a former Nipissing University student, who loves to read, write, and waste copious amounts of time on the inter-web.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I'm a board game nut, and a movie buff. Oh, and I have a Bruce Campbell collection on the go, which includes movies, action figures,and books such as "Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way". I'm a bit of a geek.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
I'm young, and I'm certain my greatest accomplishments are still in the works, but I do have a favourite academic accomplishment from my time at Nip. I got the opportunity to write a social commentary on George A. Romero's cult classic "Dawn of the Dead". I thought that was pretty cool.
How do you define cool?
Cool is hard to define, because people's interests are so radically different. What's cool to one person might completely bore someone else. I like things that make you think. Something cool should astonish, and surprise you. It should hold your interest.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
I uncover trends by using the resources I have all around me. The internet has no shortage of bloggers, and companies trying to make people aware of cool new ideas and trends. It's just a matter of looking.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
I like the wide range of categories, and sub-categories covered by Trend Hunter. There's something for everyone, and it's well organized and easy to find.
What is your favorite trend?
This is a tough question, but I think it's a tie between zombified teddy bears, and any trend on 3-D printers (which I'm really jazzed about!)
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Stick to what you're genuinely interested in. When you really like the topic you've selected, it shows in your work, and usually makes for a good read.
How do you reset to be creative?
I watch a good movie, read a good book.
What inspires or excites you?
I'm inspired by my favorite authors, actors, and directors. A good book can inspire me.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
I feel like almost anything is possible between now and then. I will predict however, that by that time 3-D printers will be a household item, and interactive technology (like the interactive mannequin) will be far more common.
