My home base is Vancouver (Canada) but Winnipeg is starting to feel like my second home.

Through 2017, I visited Winnipeg more than any other city. TV segments, videos and photo shoots were my focus but recently I started exploring the growing tech scene. Tech and Innovation can happen anywhere in the world, and quite often in places you might not expect.

Indigenous Language apps, environmental solutions and leading-edge IT services to help farmers meet their goals are just some of the innovations I discovered in Winnipeg. Located in the centre of North America, with unique global talent, cost effective housing, opportunities for growth and a burgeoning Start Up Scene, Winnipeg is at the perfect crossroads of creativity and innovative solutions.
