Where were you born/Where are you from?
I’m from Kennebecasis Valley
How long have you been a part of the uptown scene?
I’ve been going Uptown my whole life but have only started truly experiencing the best of Uptown since turning 19.
Name one or two people who you look to for inspiration?
Some people I look up to for inspiration are Christopher Nolan, Steven Spielberg, and Ron Howard who are all movie directors which I aspire to be one day. I also am inspired every day by my mother and father and everything they have done to give me the best life they could.
What is your favorite season, and why?
My favourite season is summer because I get to hang out with my friends the most, have bonfires and enjoy patio season!
What is your ultimate favorite snack food?
My favourite snack food is BBQ chips (even though I feel terrible after I eat them every time).
I have two cats named Pepper and Newt. They are extremely adorable and devilish. Mostly Pepper is the devilish one.
My worst habit is procrastination, I am occasionally way too laid back.
What is your Uptown Insider Tip?
$3.50 highballs at Port City Royal on Saturday nights are the best!
