I began working the front desk at The Drake Hotel circa spring 2007. Soon enough, I found out what made the Drake special, how it began to make its corner of the city tick. And churn. And gestate. Not unlike the many whom I’ve talked to, both on and off the record, The Drake quickly transformed from a place for a good drink, or a good night’s rest, into a building of exhilarating, enamouring experiences. The Drake was so very good to me, as it was good to the majority of people who have since abandoned it — for other cities, for other streets, for others. But, like any good lover, it spoiled us. It introduced me to many things, that took me to new places, where I was connected to, and by, new people … chief among them the best girl I know, without whom I would be lost circa 2014.
Read about the history-in-progress of a place that, for better or worse, really defined culture in a booming city. For The Grid.
Back on the job with my first piece for FASHION magazine. All black, big cats, and - what else? - music. Read ^^^
Oh + spot the cameo from the Topshop/Topman party which was, I admit, not totally awful:
InToronto magazine, October 2013. Fall accessories, from head to toe - or, well, top to bottom. Read the digital issue here.
After over 100 columns spanning two years, I present the final edition of The Night Shift.
Newly arrived art exhibits on modernist Christian Louboutin (^, the carousel of shoessss) and ancient Mesopotamia at the Royal Ontario Museum let attendees step back through time to gain insight on the art of our culture.
Yup, I also can’t believe they made me do this again. That’s Psy (^), ugh. For The Grid.
SATURDAY! DJ-ing this jam, so introducing … "#PatYourWeave: Destiny’s Child ft. Bad B*tches." The official mixtape for your pre-drink pleasure. Or whatever.
Come out on June 22 for a night of Destiny’s Child hits, Beyonce classics, and everything in between.
