What Drives You In the Morning?
A really good breakfast sandwich? I love good eggs and cheese on a bagel. But really as soon as I wake up I think about what I want to do for the day. Look at the news, what there is to write about and how I can be inspired.
It’s how I interpret something and share it with the world that really gets me going.
What is your favourite spot in Toronto?
I really love the area around Trinity Bell Woods and Queen St W. There are so many pretty boutiques and Canadian retailers, it’s continuously changing. I especially love the Summer when everyone’s out strolling with their dogs, picnicking in the park… It’s such a community; you can really see how diverse the city is.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
