What’s your ideal start to a Sunday?

My perfect Sunday start is grabbing a coffee and tackling my latest renovation project or yard work. I work with my brain all week and only want to work with my hands on the weekends.

Your current TV/Podcast/Blog or book obsession.

I am currently enjoying the Apple TV series “For All Mankind” about an alternate timeline of the US space race where the Russians beat the Americans to the moon. It combines a lot of my favourite themes: Science, Politics, Technology and epic storylines.

What's your morning drink of choice?

Easy. Second Cup Large Skinny Hazelnut Latte. I think it’s the addition of white chocolate that makes it one of a kind. Don’t judge me.

How do you take care of yourself (or your family) during the weekend?

Disconnect from work. Hang with Tamara and our two dogs Hazel and Guinness. Connect with family and friends.

What are your plans for the fall/winter?

Shovelling snow? Jokes. Travel for sure. I’m writing this on a plane heading to Mexico City with my lovely wife Tamara and will be heading to Phoenix for some golf and good times with friends shortly after.

Your soundtrack of choice for the weekend?

I have been rediscovering my grunge influences and tuning into Lithium on satellite radio. Lots of NiN, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, etc. It’s a phase I’m sure!
