How to Pack Like a Rock Star in the Media
A little something I wrote for an article in the National Post! This is one of the first pieces I’ve ever done for print and so obviously I was extremely happy that it was in a national paper. I think it made my dad just as proud as I was!
The same article as in the National Post but now in the Ottawa Citizen :)
As a huge supporter of the arts in Canada, CBC is simply amazing. I was honoured (Canadian spelling of course) to be a part of anything CBC related.
When I heard that Alan Cross had mentions my book on his blog I was ecstatic. I listen to his show, the history of music with Alan Cross, every Sunday morning. Not too sure how he found out about the book but I happy he did. I hope his copy of the book graces his coffee table.
When I first released How To Pack Like A Rock Star onto AMAZON.ca it went to number #1 in Travel tips and reference! I was so excited that I had to take a screen capture of if to remember the moment, ha!
Where I started the whole thing off, thanks to the support of many amazing people I was able to get this project funded. Thank you too all of you who supported. If you aren’t familiar with Kickstarter then I strongly recommend you check it out and support a few projects today! It’s my favorite online shopping site, really…
Another site that I thoroughly enjoy and was again surprised and extremely happy to be contacted by them. Check out the Lifehacker blog slash review on the book!

Waveliving.ca was crazy little marketing scheme where 3 live actors, including my wife, were living in a 600ft glass condo for 49 straight days… in the middle of a mall. Live feeds of their daily lives and conversations were not only streamed online, but also mic’d up and played outside the condo so the mall dwellers could also hear what was going on. Big Brother meets The Truman Show. All this to say that my book sat on the coffee table for all those watching the live stream to see.
I great little local magazine from CiTR 101.9fm in Vancouver ran a nice little review on the book under their “Textually Active” segment.
Green Couch is another amazing Vancouver company that produces music videos with a variety of artists… all somehow involving their Green Couch… in which they found. Worth checking out.
