Travel Advisor and Tour Guide

Three words you'd use to describe your area:

Capital, Charasmatic, Charming!

What's your favorite local cafe or coffee shop and why?

The Sconewitch for the amazing scones and the quant, relaxed vibe

You've got a dog lover visiting, where do you go?

The Capital grounds - while your best friend walks you can enjoy all the history and scenery surrounding Canada's capital!

You need a get-away-from it all escape, where do you go and why?

I stay right here in Ottawa - grab a suite at one of the impressive modern highrises and enjoy the city from far above the crowd. You'll never need to leave your room - although that would be hard with so much to do!

A foodie fanatic is visiting, where do you take them and what will you order?

Nandos Peruvian Chicken - and order, surprise, the peruvian chicken! Grab extra napkins because things will get messy.

You're filling a gift bag that showcases 3 - 5 of your favorite local goods, what do you include?

A tiny Canadian Flag from the Capital Building, a beaver tail pastry, maple syrup and a pair of skates to encourage them to come to Ottawa to skate the canal!

City explorers unite! Where would you take a visitor if you only had 3 hours to show off your area and why?

The canal to see the skaters in winter and the peaceful boats in summer. The Capital building and grounds and of course, I'd rent bikes and enjoy a peaceful pedal around the city!

Sporting teams can bring a community together - what teams do you love to cheer for?

Ottawa Senators - Go Sens!

How long have you lived in this incredible place? What brought you here and why you suggest someone else consider moving here?

I came to Ottawa from Montreal - just an hour or two away. I came for work and have stayed for 10 years.

The neighborhood you call home and what you love about it:

The Brux area - it's got everything I need including my favourite coffee shop a few steps from my front door!
