Team chevron background.
1. What community do you call home, and how long have you been in the North?

I have lived in Yellowknife for over 40 years. It is my home.

2. Before, during or after your project – what’s your favourite moment, the one that makes it all worth it?

I have trouble picking a single favourite moment. It’s been a fascinating project. I think moving the piano onto a frozen Great Slave Lake then cutting the hole and freezing it into the lake was one favourite moment. The other was standing beside Great Bear Lake as Leela Gilday and the drummers from Deline created their song together.

3. Give us your top 3 bucket list must do’s in life:

Learn enough French to be fully bilingual, learn to play a musical instrument, get my pilots license.

4. Please tell us why you wanted to get involved with the Northern Sights Project?

I was interested in learning more about using 360 degree cameras as a story telling tool.

5. What kind of art would you like to see more of in the Northwest Territories?

Film & TV Production

Learn the reason for each rule or guideline in your chosen field or passion before you break it.

7. What would you like the future to hold for the artists in Northwest Territories?

I would like more artists to be able to make a living from their work.

8. What’s your most favourite project you have worked on so far up North?

I couldn’t pick a single favourite. The projects that have given me the most satisfaction is those that have taken me out the lands of the north with people were willing to share their love and knowledge of those ands

9. If you could partner with anyone in the world living or passed who would it be and why?

Leonardo Da Vinci, He was a wide-ranging thinker, who wanted to know how and why things worked. He was a builder, painter, inventor, sculptor & architect. HIs interests covered, science, mathematics, literature, astronomy, botany, anatomy, geology, cartography and almost every field of human endeavour. What a privilege it would be to work beside a mind like that.
