Hello, I am a journalist and news executive. For most of my life I have tried following a guiding principle by the great Chinese philosopher, Confucius: “Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” My work has taken me throughout Canada, Ireland, Chile and the United States. One thing has stuck with me over the last 45 years - everything in life is about storytelling. And I will be sharing my stories with you about my passions - art, travel, food and cooking. I live in Vancouver with my wife, Linda, and our princess, Piper, a mini-Schnauzer. Vancouver is Canada’s third-largest city with a culturally diverse population of more than three million people. It is world-renowned for its culinary culture and its abundance of fresh, local ingredients sourced from the nearby ocean, bountiful farm lands and the Okanagan Valley, an internationally acclaimed wine-producing region.
