What I’m reading right now – March 2019

Reading has always played a really important role in my life. When I was younger, it was a tool to learn, a tool to imagine and a tool to get lost in worlds that people more brilliant than me constructed. As I’ve gotten older, I appreciate it for different reasons. At this stage of my life, I use books as … Read More

How I got into modelling

In the grocery business it is referred to as ‘facing up’. The process is simple. You work aisle to aisle moving a couple of rows of product from the back of the shelf to the front, labels forward.

Justin Trudeau and more

It’s incredible to see such a celebration of love and joy. Our prime minister walked the streets and he was genuinely overjoyed. He … Read More
