Place of Birth: Halifax, NS

Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a coffee?

I'll go with Coffee and Company. It's a nice place and friendly to filmmakers; I've shot twice there.

Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a pint?

The Duke of Duckworth. It isn't just popular on TV, it's a friendly relaxed alternative for those looking for something a little more low key than what George Street has to offer. Stop in and say hi to Rick the Bartender.

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Newfoundland & Labrador?

I really like just wandering around the downtown shops in general rather than just one spot. The city's landscape is wonderful and spending the day ducking into little shops and pubs along the way is always a fun time.

What's the one meal you miss the most when you're away?

It's gotta be anything late night at “The Hearth”. The Celtic Hearth is the all-nighter's best friend, and I've seen many sunrises walking out of that place.

Where in Newfoundland & Labrador would we stand to see your favourite view?

I love the view out the window of the plane when I spot St. Johns, or the one from Cape Spear, but I'll go classic with Signal Hill. At night you can choose to look out across the ocean reflected in the moonlight with the wind in your face, or turn around and see the harbour's outline lit up with the city as it rolls back across the rock. It never gets old.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit Newfoundland & Labrador:

1. See the view of the city from the South Side Hills, it's what all the postcards look like. 😉

2. Check out some theatre. If we're talking summer then go out around the bay to Trinity or Gros Morne or elsewhere and explore some of the island. If we're talking winter than the LSPU Hall, Majestic, Arts and Culture Centre; all part of semi-central St. Johns.

3. Check out George Street. Its legend precedes it, and come on are you really gonna come to Newfoundland for the first time and not try it once?

What makes Newfoundland & Labrador such a special place on earth for you?

The People. I've lived all across Canada and I keep coming back to the Rock. I've built some of the best memories of my life in this place with these people. It will always be a very special place for me.
