This Week’s Featured Vancouverite: Brady Dahmer

Hometown: Kitchener, ON

How long have you been a Vancouverite? Eight and a half years

Leader, Teacher, Connector, Engager. I run a branding and communications firm Brady Dahmer Design (BDD) in the day and run the Projecting Change Film Festival by night.

Favourite Vancouver neighbourhood:
I love Gastown. It has so much character in its architecture and residents. It reminds me of some of my favorite Canadian and European cities.

Your best Vancouver haiku:
Vancouver rain drives
people inside they gather
celebrate friendship

Favourite Vancouver memory:
Watching the sunset on a crystal clear evening while dining at the Observatory on Grouse Mountain.

Five essential items for a Vancouverite:
A big appetite. The chefs here can whip up the most amazing feasts.

Advil! The mixologists can mix up the most delicious cocktails that can really sneak up on you.

Taxi number because they are never around when you need them.

A food dictionary for all your friends who are trying out new vegan, raw, experimental diets with ingredients you’ve never heard of.

Patience, it’s a much slower city than people expect, so sit back and enjoy it.
