I’m an ex-touring musician turned marketing and success guy, originally from the cold and desolate (not really, but still) prairies of Alberta, now living in paradise on Vancouver Island. When I’m not working, I’m chasing my kids around, going for runs, exploring VI’s incredible lakes and mountains, playing video games, or watching hockey (go Oilers!).

Mass Effect: The trilogy and yes, even Andromeda. A sprawling space opera that blends an incredible story with fun RPG and third-person shooter mechanics, where you choose your own story.

? Adventures in Solitude: What Not to Wear to a Nude Potluck and Other Stories from Desolation Sound: a hilarious and insightful look into the CBC Grant Lawrence’s upbringing in coastal BC.

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency:  a 2-season wild ride featuring Elijah Wood. Hard to describe, but inspired by a series of Douglas Adams novels. Did you like the movie The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? If yes, then watch this.

Three by Joel Plaskett: National treasure, Joel Plaskett, serves up three solid albums of east-coast Canadiana from the shoe-gaze-y to the foot stomp-y. A wonderful road trip companion.
