01Your first job.

Walking dogs.

Talking with a mouth full, or a lack of basic manners in general.

…in a fun game called “truth or dare”.

06Your biggest indulgence.


07The one word your best friend would use to describe you.


08Three things you would want with you on a deserted island.

A thick blanket, a good book, and a swiss army knife with more features than anyone would ever need.

09 One thing no one knows about you.

I’m half Kiwi (a New Zealand citizen).

10 The one thing you are most proud of.

If it’s nice out, Lighthouse Park and if it’s not then come see a Ballet BC performance.
