Christmas Countdown in Toronto
For the twelve days leading up to Christmas I took on a small project to document holiday decorations around the city. To show the the annual make-over, each day I posted a photo essay featuring a different holiday decoration. Links to all 12 posts are below.
Parkdale’s Brightest House
Living in Parkdale the past year has taught me a lot about neighborhood spirit, so it’s no surprise how many houses are decorated for Christmas. I thought I would give a special salute to this house I found on Brock Avenue, just North of the Beer Store across from McCormick Park. It’s by far the […]
Behind the Mic Series
Behind the Mic was a series of five interviews with Toronto radio personalities I did for BlogTO. The series featured Larry Green of Jazz FM, Barry Taylor of 102.1 the Edge, Matt Galloway of CBC Radio, Roger Lajoie of The Fan 590 and Edoardo Monasterolo of CHIN.

The day after Halloween, residents of the Parkdale/Roncesvalles neighborhood carry their pumpkins to Sorauren Park, creating a massive pumpkin party/retirement home. Over 700 pumpkins made their way to the park, and when the sun was set, the eerie field of faces made for the most glorious spectacle! Many more photos of the hundreds of lit […]
Audio Slideshow: AWOL’s Square Foot Exhibit Goes Up
Earlier this week I went down to Queen and Ossington to document the hanging of over 1300 pieces for the 6th annual Square Foot Exhibit presented by AWOL Gallery. I put together a two minute video to document how much work goes into the set-up of the exhibit and include a sped-up Benny Hill montage […]

Turkey, Euro 2008’s cinderella story, was finally eliminated after a 3-2 loss to Germany in the semi-finals. For the first time since my World Cup Project in 2006 I went out to document soccer fans in Toronto, spurred on by the fact I live down the road from a Turkish Cafe called Kara Altin. Check […]
Mille Femmes in Toronto
I stumbled upon an stunning photography show in the atrium of the TD towers this past Wednesday – Pierre Maraval’s Mille Femmes as part of Luminato. To see more photos and hear about the show read my post from blogTO.
Mars at the Science Centre
I think this is the coolest picture. I took it while watching Roving Mars at the OMNIMAX movie theatre at the science centre as part of the media preview day of the new exhibit. What’s so cool about the photo is that it is double wide. I’m using my 10mm lens and the screen in […]
Doors Open Toronto
If you haven’t been to the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Northern Etobicoke, you should definitely check it out. Beautiful. I wrote about my visit for blogTO.com, check it out here.
I caught a wonderful spring-in-the-city moment when Bloor Stree Fitness decided to re-paint their iconic red gloves. I got lots of photos as I kept going back document the progress. More photos can be found here.
Snow banks at parking lots get MASSIVE after a big storm so I thought I had pretty much seen the extent of how high these man-plowed snow mountains can get… can you imagine my surprise after spotting this monster at the South East corner of Kipling and Bloor. It’s one of a number of city […]
BlogTO review on Excalibur Comics in the West end of Toronto. This was my favorite shop in the world growing up and it was fun to return to my old stomping grounds to see it both hadn’t changed much and changed a lot.
