Happy Monday! We want you to get to know our team. For #MeetTheTeamMonday we asked our Executive Director Colin some questions to get to know him.
⭐️Do you lean more towards being an introvert or an extrovert?
My Myers-Briggs tells me I’m an extrovert but it’s marginal. I tend to be in the middle of this spectrum and while I very much enjoy relationships, community, and being engaged with people, I also need to time to myself to recharge, reflect and refocus.
⭐️If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
I would be a hybrid of black and gold. Those are the colours of my favorite football team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
⭐️What celebrity would you like to meet at Starbucks for a cup of coffee?
Right now, probably Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I follow him on social media and he is an inspiring, positive, and motivated person. He is successful in multiple industries and seems to always be doing something positive for other people. He is also a father to young daughters, as I am, so I enjoy watching his experience from that perspective.
⭐️Where do you feel the most grounded, near the ocean or in the mountains?
Ocean, always the ocean. Although I was born and raised in Calgary, my family would come to Vancouver Island every summer for vacation. My love of the ocean started young through those trips. I have always felt a strong pull toward the ocean. It settles me, allows my brain to rest and access a broader perspective. I feel the most at peace in my life when I’m at the beach listening to the waves.
⭐️If you had to describe yourself as an animal, which one would it be?
This is a tough one. Maybe an Orca because of the answer above about my love of the ocean, and the fact that they are known for being protective and loving parents.
⭐️What 3 words describe you best?
⭐️Do you prefer coffee or tea?
Coffee!! Discovery coffee is my favorite. I start almost every day working early in a Discovery Coffee. I usually have two Americano’s a day, always before noon.
