Occupation: Community Manager/Promoter & Marketer/Student
What do you like most about your job? The people and the perks! Working alongside breweries and restaurants definitely has its bonuses! I get to meet tons of awesome people and our meetings tend to be over a beer or two.
A notable moment on Twitter? When I got my first beer thanks to my twitter handle!
Your best tweet: “The best part about coming home is de-pantsing”
What did you want to be growing up? Much like George Costanza I wanted to be a marine biologist when I grew up. I loved the aquarium and wanted to work with all of the cool animals. My favourite animals were the belugas.
If you could have dinner with 1 person (live or dead) who would it be? Zane Lamprey from Drinking Made Easy. Drinks are on him!
Your claim to fame: Being co-creator of @YVRBeerTweetup.
Do you know of a hidden gem in our city? Thanks to twitter there aren’t many hidden gems in our city anymore. However, if I was going to choose one place, I’d choose Jimmy’s Taphouse – @JimmysTaphouse. They’ve got the best wings in the city! Try the Maple garlic wings. Goes great with a sleeve of Blue Buck!
If you were a superhero, who would you be and why? I’d be Wolverine. He’s Canadian and he kicks ass; enough said!
Recommend a Twitter account that deserves some recognition?
@VancityHeather – Of course I’m going to give a shout out to my amazing girlfriend!
@FiveHoleForFood – An incredible non-profit that plays hockey for food! Last year they raised and donated 40,000 pounds worth of food to food banks across Canada.
Describe yourself in 3 words: Fun, Friendly and Sociable! Cheers!
