Years ago I was modelling at a photo shoot with MTD Products and Gemini Modelling Agency… trimmers, lawn mowers… it was a glamorous shoot! One of the leads at the photo shoot was Stephen Young, the National Marketing Manager at the time for MTD. I was out of school and working but needed to grow …

I say it every year, but I love New Year’s Eve–not for the high expectations placed on one night of the year, but because of the fresh start welcomed in at midnight. We say goodbye to a year of memories, adventure, ups and downs, and welcome in 365 new opportunities. This January marks 8 years …

I love airports. I love watching the big hugs, the hellos and goodbyes. I love the way a person’s eyes light up when they are reconnected with someone they love, or are boarding a plane for their next adventure.

I’m driving down the highway, Florida Georgia Line is playing in the background, the heat from my sunroof keeping me warm, but I’m taking in the fresh autumn breeze.

I remember that day in grade seven like it was yesterday: about 75% of our class had glasses, and I was finally getting a pair too! I didn’t have to worry about sitting at the front of the class any more to see… I had my cool blue frames with squiggly lines alone the arms. …

Last week I took the train down to Toronto for the OpenText Innovation Tour. As I stepped onto the platform in the ‘big city’ I immediately recognized the main difference between Torontonians and Waterloo residents: the rush to get to your destination. I got off the train and followed the herd down the stairs to …
