Were you born in PEI or are you an Islander by choice? 

Born on the Island, raised at home and across the country, always called PEI home though!

How long have you been living in PEI?

See above – forever!

Where do you live in PEI?

I spend my time between Mount Stewart and Charlottetown

Describe what an average day looks like for you?

There are no average days in the life of an Island photographer and videographer. Some days it’s working in kitchens with local and celebrity chefs, other days it’s in the water alongside a dory capturing the oyster harvest.

What is your favourite thing about life in PEI?

Life is at a slower pace here than the rest of the world. It spawns creativity.

What is something people wouldn't know if they're not from the Island?

That the word “slippy” exists and that we all use it extensively.

What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy? What can’t you stop talking about?

Food, music and the great outdoors. All necessary for living and all equal. 

If you had to choose one spot on the Island to take someone who has never been here, where would it be?

Easy. Cape Tryon.

Any funny facts about yourself or factoids about the Island that you think people should know?

My dog has more followers on Instagram than I do. 

Don't be Shy...
