About

Some would say that I’m a hockey loving, curling watching, caffeine addicted, beer drinking, book devouring, music cranking, baseball throwing, bat swinging, country music listening, oar paddling, Converse wearing, motorbike obsessing, crossword doing, quiver nocking, fire hydrant collecting, film watching, TV show following, art creating, trailer cutting Canuck living in the Great White North.

But I would just classify that as being me. 

I work primarily in art and photography, dabbling lately in film editing. This blog is for my own personal work, rants & thoughts, while my primary work is located elsewhere in the ether. If you were looking to 'learn' a little more about me, you’ve hit the right place. If you were just looking for the work I do, well then, you might want to head here instead:

Hi Sam!

Thanks for taking the time to read this letter. As fellow YouTubers, we have much respect for others who put so much hard work into building their channel. It’s not easy, and you should be proud! That said, we’ve noticed that in your success, there has been a lack of respect in…

There are a lot of blurry lines in the world, but this isn’t one of them. I’m very pleased the our community has come together to discuss this openly and rationally. Five stars to Laci for binding people together in that, with an open and clear message.

I hope (expect even) that Sam will be taking the video down soon, because every moment it’s up is another moment where he’s normalizing assault and societal dominance of women. 

I further hope that Sam makes a considerable contribution to shelters that provide services for women who are victims of sexual assault.
