I decided a long time ago that I want to leave the world a better place than the way it was when I came into it.
I'm always looking to learn something new, and enjoy finding innovative and creative ways to share that information with others.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Winning The Publishers Association of Ontario (IPAO) award for the best new publication in 2011.
How do you define cool?
Something that is on the cutting edge and is either a reworking of something from the past in an effort to make it better, or a completely new innovation. It's all about improvement and advancement.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
I have my eyes and ears open at all times. It's amazing what you can learn when you aren't even expecting it.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
The variety of different content that it covers and the way in which you have the opportunity to read about a myriad of different topics in the span of a few minutes.
How do you reset to be creative?
I try to do something creative but in a different capacity from what I'm doing already. If I'm having writers block, I like to paint. If I'm having trouble coming up with a way to fill a canvas, I listen to music. It keeps the juices flowing while allowing my brain to recharge.
What inspires or excites you?
Other inspiring people. When I hear about someone doing something that I really admire, it gives me the motivation to get out there and do something great myself.
