Nuit Blanche 2012 Video

I experienced Nuit Blanche last night. The Hip put on an AWESOME show. The Drambuie event at Camera Parts was awesome. Will post some photos from those tomorrow.


For today, check out this rad video by my Jon Simonassi from The Biz Media digital video agency. There was SO MUCH to see last night. Were you out? What did YOU see? LMK!


For one night each year, Toronto’s streets become an outdoor interactive art gallery. Last year our goal was to beat the press and release a video before sunrise the next morning. This year our goal was no different. The crowds were huge, the art was amazing and we were up all night making this video so you can experience it all over again – the very next day.

Nuit Blanche 2012 – My Plan for the Night

Tonight is Nuit Blanche and the city is alive with art installaions, music, and culture. It’s one of my fvaourite Toronto events and I’ve taken part since it started back in 2008. Tonight I’m starting with The Tragically Hip and Molson Canadian at Sound Academy. The show isn’t a Nuit Blache event but those are tickets I won’t pass up!

My portrait is featured in an installation called Life Lessons at Funding Matters Gallery  (Zone C 29).  Life Lessons features 311 portraits of community figures who have helped shape the city of Toronto. Other notables ar Margaret Atwood, David Miller, Douglas Coupland, Justin Bieber, Atom Egoyan, George Strombo, David Mirvish, Susur Lee, and Karen Kain. I am extremely honoured to be in this amazing group! The project will be exhibited using Sony HD TV screens displaying life-sized images of each subject at print-quality resolution.

  • When:     September 29th, 2012
  • Time:       7:03 PM
  • Location:  FUNDING matters GALLERY – 33 DUNDAS ST E, TORONTO ON   M5A 2A2 (East of Sherbourne, South side) 

See the event page on Facebook to view portraits of other notable people in the Toronto community. 


 One of my fav years was 2009 when I went to U of T then ran into my sister on Queen Street at 3am. Another fav was 2010 when we filmed the video that won me the Virgin America Provocateur title. Here’s a little art history on my Nuit Blanche adventures.

After the Hip and Life Lesson’s exhibit, I’ll be heading to Camera Parts on Queen Street for Drambuie’s Extraordinary Night pop-up installation. It’s definitely something you want to check out as you’re cruising around. We posted about it on the Pulp&Fiber blog at work. Come by to discover your extraordinary side! I should be there about midnight.


I wish you a fun filled night of artistic exploration. If you see me make sure to say HI.



THIS on Coral TV: Interview w/ Steve Carty

Earlier this week I sat down with Toronto photographer Steve Carty to talk tips for taking great photos for the internet. He’s the awesome photog who took the shots of me with the ice cream and did my intro video.





Early Riser, Morning Sunshine

Woke up early after a super long day. Dance was great last night. Routine to Rack City, no joke. Filmed an episode of Coral TV, comes out tomorrow. Arrived first at the office. Sunshine halo at my desk. I’m so slow leaving the house.  I have a taxi problem. Wore a hat. It’s getting colder. Can’t wait to buy a new bike. Don’t have a case on my iPhone just screen protector. Work is going good. Going the to Casby awards tonight. Seeing the Hip on Saturday. Ready for the weekend. Working full time is tiring but so is freelance. I’ve been drinking less. It’s really sunny today. Maybe I’ll go for a walk at lunch.

You will never be younger than you are today, do something special, do something fun, tell someone you love them.

Have an awesome day,


Shad & Grand Analog Music Video: The Great Rhyme Dropper


This weekend Brock, Lauren, my sister, and I were hired to be in the new Shad & Grand Analog video. It should be out before the holidays on MuchMusic. It was so much fun. I love working with the team at 1188 Films. Here’s some pix from behind the scenes. It was hilarious doing green screen. The guys in the band were awesome to work with.

It’s gonna be funny when it arrives on the tele! Woo hoo 🙂
