It’s been famously said, “The world needs more Canada.” So, as a native Canadian, I like to think I’m doing my part by sharing my culture down south. And obviously, after 23 years in the US – from Boston to Dallas to Seattle and back to Dallas again – I’ve fallen in love with my adopted country and made it my mission to see as many states as possible (39 states and counting). In fact, just the other weekend, I checked off Indiana and Ohio, which are both stunningly beautiful in the fall and have some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met.
Here’s a little bit more about me:
Favorite beer or wine? I’m not really into drinking much anymore, but once in a while I love having La Fin du Monde.
Favorite vacation spot? I love to travel and could do it 24/7, 365 days a year. My favorite destination is almost anywhere that requires an airplane.
Best TV show of all time? When I’m not traveling, I love to spend my time outside – preferably skiing or hiking in the mountains. But if you force me to watch TV, I’m always up for The Amazing Race. I think I’ve been a die-hard fan of the show for 20 years, and I haven’t missed a season.
Favorite movie? The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
I need a restaurant recommendation, where should I go? I’m most likely not the person to ask…but I’m always up for healthy organic food.
You’ve committed a serious crime like putting dirty dishes in the sink and are sentenced to death. What would your last meal be? I’m a huge fan of Greek salad. Although I’d probably make one at home, the best one I’ve ever had was at Seasons of Bowness Park in Calgary, Alberta.
If you could have dinner with 3 people, living or dead, who would you dine with? I’d love to dine with my favorite artists – Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, and Frida Kahlo.
How do you drink your coffee? Double Espresso, preferably with Lavazza gold selection whole beans.
If you could do one thing other than work for Redonk, what would it be? Own a kitchie 1970’s themed ski resort in Montana (and obviously spend a lot of time skiing).
