I literally have no time for life, so my hobby game is weak. But when I do find myself procrastinating with what humans refer to as “hobbies”, I love to cook and try out new recipes. It’s a tangible, creative outlet. I also enjoy perusing MLS for properties that I have no intention of buying at the moment. Also, I’m a current affairs junkie. And since I make TV, I also watch TV (usually super late). OMG "Chef’s Table" people. Superb. I also like online window shopping at Nordstrom.
What did you have for breakfast this morning? What's for lunch? What's for dinner?
This morning I had left over Thanksgiving din din for lunch from my fam. Had no time for breakfast. Dinner tonight was a very strange Polish dish from my mama that I won’t bother sharing the name of because it’s pretty unconventional (read: gross).
Which superhero would you be and why?
I know she’s not exactly a super hero, but I feel like Penny from Inspector Gadget is my spirit animal. Blonde, stubborn, smart and never without her laptop. I always admired her tenacity and resourcefulness, and who wouldn’t want a dog with a human IQ?
What's your favourite colour?
I have a hard time choosing anything (FOMO), so I like to think all colours are my favourite at different times. I pretty much can find a shade I like in every colour. But if you put me on the spot, I’d say I’m attracted to anything shiny and metallic (gold, silver), and pink, purple, and bright shades of green. Red. I also like red.
When's your birthday?
May 21st. Cuspian represent! I’m born on the first day of Gemini, or the last day of Taurus depending on the source. I’m definitely multifaceted, like your typical Gemini, but stubborn as a Taurus.
How did we meet?
We met at the annual King West Christmas party—although let’s just say, my memories of that night are hazy ;-) I found a text from you in my phone, and the rest is history.
Currently, I’m wearing a bunch of hats, probably too many than is healthy/ recommended/ normal. I’m a PhD Candidate, researcher and instructor at Ryerson University. I work with an amazing team of people who challenge and expand my thinking everyday. In January, I’ll be teaching a course called “Entrepreneurship in the Creative Industries”. I’m also co-founder of a new start-up media production company based in the 6, and we’re busy finishing up the pilot for our first series (coming to a screen near you). I’m also a member of the board of directors and President of the Independent Web Creators of Canada, an awesome upstart org aimed at advocating on behalf of Canadian digital creators. Also, I’m a ferrent—which means I’m a ferret parent. I love what I do!
Ummm…am I Polish, or am I Polish? What’s not to like? Sweet….GOOD. Sour….GOOD. Crunch…GOOD. Green…GOOD. Love pickles. They’re my friends. A nice low cal snack that’s delish.
