Chicago's Cloud Gate

Look at where a year took us! At the start of 2017, it seemed like 2016 was going to be hard to top. In 2016 I visited Hong Kong, L.A. for Hamilton Watch's Behind the Camera Awards, and I had a lot of really incredible interviews. But 2017 topped all of my expectations.

SickKids VS Limits

Stranger Things is back! I have a pretty short list of shows that I truly adore, and Stranger Things is right near the top, so I was thrilled when the second season debuted last Friday on Netflix. Now Aisha and I just need to find enough time to watch the rest of it, but I kind of appreciate taking a few weeks to see it all. I'm all for binging now and then, but for some shows it's also nice to take a little time to let a show sink in.

Hand me a new cell phone to try, and I'll probably end up playing with the camera within a few minutes--it's my go-to feature because first and foremost I love taking pictures. The technology on mobile devices has also come a long way in the last five years, and they now offer impressive options compared to a standard camera. So when I had the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to play with for a month, I ended up shooting a lot of photos and videos--over 1300 photos, and close to an hour of video.

Summer is around the corner, I just got back from a Canada 150 road trip with Ford, and there are only 85 days until the Toronto International Film Festival. There is a lot going on, but the festival is front of mind since I'm prepping The GATE's Interview Lounge at TIFF, and my accreditation application came in Monday too.

Samsung gave me an early look at the Galaxy S8 last week, two days after their Samsung Unpacked event in New York City. Demoing the new devices to media last Friday, Samsung showed off some of the big changes, including one of the big new ways you can use the S8.

March is almost over and it's been a fun month, and just a tad more relaxed than I expect in April. A little down time is welcome, and it's certainly easy to hibernate when the weather is not so hot out. There has still been a lot to do though, and this weekend would have been a lot busier if I'd been able to make the Juno Awards, but I'll be watching the festivities from Toronto.

Billy Campbell and Karine Vanasse from Cardinal

Canadian television has been very strong for well over a decade now, but the last couple of years have definitely been a peak, and 2017 starts with no less than four great new series: Pure on CBC, Mary Kills People and Ransom on Global, and Cardinal on CTV.

The Beaches

Welcome to September, and wow, is it busy. I've certainly noticed that I'm busier than usual, but you really know you're especially busy when publicists start responding to your schedule by telling you, 'Wow, you're busy'. There's busy, and then there's a level of busy that even a publicist can appreciate.
