10 Questions for Kurtis Lesick

10 Questions for Kurtis Lesick 1. What part of the city do you live in and what do you love about it Capital Hill. I live in a house that was first owned by my great grandaunt.

I can be mowing the lawn and suddenly be transported back to the exact same spot and activity when I was six. The difference is that I would get a quarter for mowing the lawn when I was six…. 2. Who inspires you? I’ve been lucky to have a lot of...

Curious to Know Why, Not Just HowWritten by : amery Calvelli // @amerycal 1. Born in Calgary or from somewhere else? Both.

The Dumbest Person in the Room

The Dumbest Person in the Roomor 10 Things You Don't Know About Ken CameronWritten by : Ken Cameron // @productiveobsession 1. What part of Calgary do you live in and what do you love about it? I live in Ramsay, that quiet neighbourhood nestled between the railroad tracks and the Stampede Grounds that everyone thinks of as an extension of Inglewood. It’s one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in Calgary. If I walk two blocks east of my house I encounter an abattoir and a condemned biker bar; if I walk two blocks west I find million-dollar homes cresting Scotsman’s Hill. To the north, one of the best breakfast joints in the city; to the south, the original Café Rosso location and roasterie. This egalitarian...
