Sooner or Later, Every Kid Gets Assertive
I found this a real key moment on the parental journey. On one hand, you can’t help but feel proud of a child who stands up for herself. On the other hand, you know that parenting is suddenly going to get more difficult and strategic.
One of the BEST Things I’ve Ever Done!
This was something I saw going around the Internet a while back. I figured I’d give it a shot, just to see if I could muster the discipline to go 100 days without alcohol. My biggest realization was how much the cost-benefit analysis tipped in favour of skipping the booze altogether!
Thoughts on Fatherhood
In this piece, I talk about my journey through fatherhood, learning as I go and the importance of being a positive role model. There’s so much to learn about being a good dad, and we all have to learn as we go along, sometimes winning, sometimes losing, but always in awe of the beauty of it all!
One Soldier’s Powerful Story
It was a real pleasure to meet and listen to Rob Martin’s story. Rob is an exceptional and inspirational human being who reminds us that, no matter how dark the night seems, there is a new morning and new life and you can make it through to embrace both to the fullest.

It’s always a great experience to shoot at this event. Lots of craft brewers, great wines and an opportunity to taste test the eclectic flavors of Leslieville. Should be a must attend on your yearly schedule of events in the hood!
My Coldest Shoot Ever
Had a blast shooting Scotiabank’s Pro-Am for Alzheimers! Kudos to producer Cameron McCleery ( who pulled the team together to contribute their services) and Richard Cerezo (he was the guy who did the skating shots:).
We are so lucky in Canada and Toronto to have so many truly world-class health facilities. Baycrest is a global leader in advancing prevention and treatment of age-related disease. Really worthy of support!
