What has been your favourite day of your life, up to this point?
I'll never forget the day I shared the stage with SNL Alum Norm MacDonald at the Kelowna Community Theatre in March of 2010. Was totally a dream come true to sit back stage and talk about his career and all the things I have always wanted to do and then get out there in front of 800+ people and do what we do best, tell jokes!
What has been your proudest accomplishment?
Getting Train Wreck Comedy up and running in Kelowna. There was a noticeable need for live comedy after Yuk Yuks closed down about 3 years ago and I am happy to be filling that void for comedians and comedy fans alike.
If you were trapped in an elevator with several wealthy investors from any field, which field would you want them to be experts in? What would say to them/talk about?
I'm Claustrophobic, this question makes me uncomfortable.
Where is your favourite place to dine in Kelowna?
What is your favourite activity in Kelowna?
If I could change 1 thing about Kelowna, it would be:
COST OF LIVING!!!!
What do you think makes Kelowna great?
I think it's a combination of, the people, the golf, the weather, the lake, the wineries, the skiing, the community events, the great restaurants, the local produce, and probably a lot more things that I am forgetting! It really is a great place for too many reasons to name!
My choice for the Kelowna person of the day is:
My Girlfriend Amanda...she just did all the dishes while I filled out this questionnaire! Now that's true love!
Some general comments I would like to share are:
