Getting Over My Fear of Eye Glasses with Polette Eyewear

Getting Over My Fear of Eye Glasses with Polette Eyewear

July 6th, 2014

I wasn’t always a confident dude, you know. For most of my life, I wore butt-ugly glasses. I’m not sure if it was like that for the rest of you 80s babies, but when I was in elementary school, eye glasses were always associated with geekery and nerdisms. In Grade 4, I used to be in big-time denial[...]

5 Things That Make the 2014 Acura MDX "POP", Plus a Super Relaxing Getaway.

June 19th, 2014

Alright, alright, alright. I'm probably little spoiled by Acura at this point. I must've test drove a slew of great vehicles on their fleet, including the TL [read this], ILX [watch this], and the RSX. All extremely legit cars that I've raved wildly about. I'm very specific about my favourite[...]

5 Favourite Things About the 2014 Volkswagen CC + Fun Test Drive Destinations

May 5th, 2014

This is my first Vee Dub I've driven, I think. Well, except for the Jetta's in the Autoshare fleet, but they typically smell like worn gym sneakers. I've always admired Volkswagen's advertising though, but I think the allure has more to do with their premier German engineering that really sets t[...]

5 Really Important Things I Learned About Mobile Wallets from PayPal

5 Really Important Things I Learned About Mobile Wallets from PayPal

April 15th, 2014

Mobile wallets. It's been on the top of my mind for the past year, mainly because I'm one of those guys that has to wear both hats. I tend to look at things from both the end-user perspective first, and from an business integration perspective second. From a customer perspective, it's a blessi[...]

PS4 Sneak Preview: Playstation 4 arrives November 15th!

November 7th, 2013

I considered starting this post with my juggernaut-like history with video games, but I feel like that'd force you to read I've got a pretty lengthy history with ye ol' trusty Playstation. Lets take a minute and highlight the crafty beginnings with Sony's fun box. I pretty much spent my enti[...]

BlackBerry Z10 Review, Best Apps, and iPhone Comparison

February 8th, 2013

It's been a week since the BlackBerry 10 launch and I'm neck deep into my new Blackberry Z10: learning the in's and out's of this fantastic little Canadian device. I think it's only fair, as a reviewer, that I do three things to simplify the learning process: (1) Post a video of myself and m[...]

Ramone?

It’s a nickname. I got it a few years back from my close friends. Apparently I have a care-free, risk taking attitude. And you guess it, it has a lot to do with my Razor Ramone / The Ramones’ bad-assery. Hey, I didn’t pick it. The best things about you come from your closest people. I just won’t claim accuracy.

What I do.

We’re in a race people. A race to remind people that hey, I’m really important. pay attention to me. You could be that 14 year old YouTube star searching for more subscribers. You could be that bombshell blonde that spends an extra 15 minutes prettying up for the boys. You could be that executive who needs a clearer message than, our penis enhancement really works. We’re in a race to grab somebody’s attention. It’s what some people want. And one reason or another, it’s what some people need.

I’ve done my time. In class. Three years of computer science to realize my passion wasn’t there. Three more years of marketing proved to me that the job market is very competitive, regardless of what Workopolis says. I’ve made websites from scratch since 1997. I even started graphic designing with Paint Shop Pro 5 in 1999. Technology changes, but the principals rarely do.

Combining my studies, my hobbies, and my hunger for everything social, it made perfect sense. Social media was where I ended up.

I’ve climbed the social ladder for over four years and currently providing social media and content marketing strategies for a slew of cool companies. I do a bunch of other stuff, but that’s all you get to know about for now. Get at me on Twitter to follow the trivial journey that is my life.
