Best known for | My interesting and interchangeable hairstyles, it’s the one thing I get complimented on the most.
Favourite “at work” memory | Most of my favourite “at work” memories involve making sad people leave with happy smiles. It’s my favourite thing to do. Usually angry or upset folks who come into my bar and treat me relatively badly are just looking for someone to ask them what’s wrong. I’m a great listener. I’m always there to chat, and I love doing it. One time a customer came in and did just that (treat me pretty badly) and I gave her a reason to smile. She looked up at me and said “thank you for being the kind of person I needed today” and she gave me the warmest hug. And that’s my favourite at work memory.
What do you collect? Deadpool comics!
Favourite thing about your city? My favourite thing about Toronto is the sense of pride that residents have. It’s that “I’m from the greatest city in the world” mentality that I admire from Torontonians, and it gives us all a sense of family and community not many cities have.
