What do you like to do outside of work?
I play touch rugby. I’ve played for my school and for clubs. I started playing in junior college after friends introduced me to it, and I started taking it more seriously in my first year of university. I’ve had some minor injuries, and it does cause an old ankle injury of mine to act up occasionally, but thankfully it’s nothing too serious.
What are some of your favourite places or spaces?
It’s probably a typical answer, but for me it has to be home. I used to stay on campus back in university, so going home on the weekends was always a special thing for me. I do still try to attend training four or five times a week even though I’m working now, so I usually get home late when my parents and dog are asleep. So it’s nice when I’m at home in the day and get to spend time with them.
If you could have a conversation with your dog, what would you talk to him about?
I’d ask him why he’s so hungry all the time! (laughs) Even though we feed him enough, he loves to eat everything, especially human food. His favourite food is probably bread; my dad gives him a lot of bread even though it consists mostly of carbohydrates and isn’t good for him.
If you could relive any moment or period in your life, what would it be?
It’d probably be secondary school—that was a less stressful time, I’d just started to take music a little more seriously, and I had many like-minded friends whom I spent a lot of time with after school.
Are there any movies you can rewatch over and over again?
Any of the classic Disney movies! Besides that, I’m a big fan of sci-fi and Star Wars thanks to my dad. Now that there are the reboots and new characters, the films are something I look forward to every year.
What’s something you’d like to be better at?
Time management. I do make a lot of sacrifices in order to pursue all my hobbies, like giving up sleep and time with friends and family.
