Havana

Cuba 2016

Photography

Recently, I visited the socialist paradise that is Cuba. Instead of squirrels they have these little scurrying lizards. There’s a guy in Havana that serves coconut ice cream in a coconut. Good times.

Fan V Fan: Game of Thrones

Video

You remember Fan V Fan: it’s the television review show that I created with Dorkshelf. We’ve been covering The Flash for two seasons and we begin covering GoT last year. This season, I step out from behind the camera and join co-host Joel Minty in many loud and enthusiastic conversations about crushing skulls.

Here’s episode three because in this one we finally, mostly got the lighting right.

WalrusTalks B

Walrus Talks

Video

Noah Taylor and I filmed last month’s Walrus Talks. This session, themed ‘Healthy Cities’, took place in Hamilton on a snowy evening. Seven speakers pitched their ideas for what makes good cities and what could make them better.

That Time I Went Through Nine Bags Of Morphine

Blog, Writing

“That Time I…” posts are true stories that am I retiring from my social repertoire. To honour them, I am committing them to text for the first time. Read stories about sound torture, abortion, my awesome tattoo, and the infamous Tragic Hand Button.

I awoke at one o’clock in the morning with a sharp and intense pain in my abdomen. Guessing that I had food poisoning, I sat on the toilet for a while expecting something to come out of either end. Nothing did. But I had dealt with this kind of thing before and, in my experience, it operates on its own schedule. I went back to bed to wait for instructions from my body.

Raconteurs: Big Ideas

Storytelling

Come see me tell a story at this month’s Raconteurs, Toronto’s premier story-telling show. The theme this month is ‘Big Ideas’ and I’ll be recounting my famous freckle tattoo story. The cover is only 10$ which is a lot less than what I normally charge for my company.
