Q: Where’s your favourite place in British Columbia?
A: This is a hard question! My favorite thing about BC is that the landscape and topography is so varied. From the ocean on the West Coast to the Rockies and the hidden mountain lakes, to Northern BC, where you can see the aurora borealis so clearly, to the semi-arid desert-like conditions in the Okanagan and the rainforest-like pockets tucked in throughout the province, it’s not possible to pick one place. I’m grateful to be here and acknowledge that I live, work and play on the beautiful and bountiful lands of the ancestral, traditional and unceded territories of the First Nation Peoples that BC resides upon.
Q: What one thing can you not live without?
A: Books! I need them around me, even if I’m not reading them. They keep me grounded. And my kids—they also keep me grounded.
