Open Up And Om – #23 – Steven Csorba. Fuck Cancer.
November Project was my first exposure to Steven Csorba, and I only wish I’d known him sooner. As someone who always has a camera with me, I’m naturally drawn to those who like to view the world around them through a different lens. Yet, as the story of Steven unfolded in front of me,...

Open Up And Om – #22 – Shay Bachelet. Sit In The Shit.
I still remember the first time I met Shay. She had introduced her self to me at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival and we started talking about capturing the beauty of our community through Instagram.

Grainworks
With my regular wheat delivery no longer in check, I needed to find somewhere new to source my wheat berries. There are a handful of options, but the cost per lb is (in my opinion) ridiculous. So I was excited to stumble onto Grainworks, which is located in Southern Alberta. Process was easy enou...

Open Up And Om – #20 – Caren Hui. Sunshine and Coffee.
Caren is one of those people in the community that I’ve followed for a long time, but rarely ever find the time or opportunity to talk to. So it’s with a great deal of happiness that we were finally able to organize a podcast date to catch up. There is something inherently special abo...

Open Up And Om – #19 – Kathleen Ritchie. The Perfect Mullet.
I bugged Kathleen the other day that it will be nice to actually meet when we sit down to talk. You see, we have crossed paths before, but it has always been at a pretty high level. The joy in these podcasts is that I (we) get to sit down and enjoy the story of … Continue reading →
