Where were you born?
I'm from Saint John,?growing up in the North End.
How long have you been a part of the Uptown Scene?
I've worked in the City Market for 8 years and previously lived in the uptown core.
I would have to say my favorite season is spring as the winter fishing grounds of the North Atlantic are closing bringing on the start of the Bay of Fundy lobster season with the Shad and Gaspereaux seasons getting in to full swing in the Saint John Harbour in May.
Favorite culinary pleasure?
My seasonal culinary favorite is to have multiple feeds,?in?the month of May, when the harbour shad roe becomes available with our locally picked fiddle heads.
What?s your uptown ?insider tip?'
I have 2 insider tips for the Uptown of Saint John.? First is to sample everything.? Local shops are working hard to promote their unique products,?take interest because there is a gold mine to discover.? My second tip food wise is to ask questions?of the local food vendors.? The knowledge that is available is almost endless with staff that are more than willing to help you?find the best shopping experience out there.
