I was recently contracted by Canadian Sport Centre Pacific to cover their Lift off to London event in Vancouver. The event started with a private media mingler at the Creekside Community Recreation Centre followed by a public celebration at the Salt Building with some autograph signing by the many athletes there.

Scott Dickens was a great speaker and had a great speech that revolved around the phrase “Why not me?”. It’s a great perspective that I’ll take forward with me for business and sports in my future.
