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

I love the diversity of this city and that diversity brings forth a culture of acceptance and understanding. Its this openness and willingness to share and more importantly listen that makes Toronto a hub for innovation of all sort.

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

There will always be many things that we should be looking at as a city. Investing in youth, the arts, transit all are worthy candidates for support. That said, I believe the Smart City iniative holds the key to much of this and so I say double-down on it.

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

“The Uber of…”

 
What is your favourite curse word?

GOBSHITE!

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

Evergreen Brick Works for a walk (weather permitting) or inside at Cafe Belong.
