Volunteer role: Communications and social media committee member

What’s the most important lesson you ever learned?
To consider a proposal on its own merit, regardless of whether or not one is getting along well with the person who has made it.

What or who makes you laugh out loud?
Some comedians and satirists (Monty Python, The Onion, etc.).

What is the best book you read in the last year?
Hard to say, because a lot of my reading consists of dipping into books, rather than reading entire books from start to finish. I love reading short stories, and for some reason I love anthologies, especially (but not exclusively) science fiction and fantasy.

What is your guilty pleasure?
Cheese and crackers.

What is your dream vacation destination?

If you were presented with a book that told the story of your entire life from start to finish, what would you do with it?
Read it and then lend it to my family and friends.

Who is your favourite poet?
Jorge Luis Borges.

What is your favourite place in Canada?

What is the last book you read?
Forward the Foundation, by Isaac Asimov.

What are your favourite book genres?
Science fiction and fantasy (including surrealism, magic realism, etc.).

Which band or singer provided the soundtrack to your teen years?
The Beatles and Cat Stevens.
