What’s your favourite thing about doing business out of Toronto?

I have three favourite things: 1) Openness to new ideas; 2) Diversity of people, thought and experience; 3) The pure intellectual capital and curiosity driving innovation and experimentation

 
What is the one thing you’d like to see the City of Toronto accomplish for businesses in 2018?

A meaningful and clear investment in and plan for transit that has clear and adhered to timelines. Without it, this city simply cannot evolve, grow or compete – we’ll be strangled.

 
What is the one buzzword or trend you’d like to see die in 2018?

“Influencers” Fuck off.

 
What is your favourite curse word?

See above response, and variations thereof

 
Where do you go in Toronto when you need to focus and allow your mind to work through complex business challenges?

The 50m pool at the U of T athletic centre or a bike ride along the Leslie Street Spit, the Waterfront/Beaches and/or the Don trail
