What do you do and why do you do it?

People say that I'm a Tech Influencer. I run a popular YouTube channel and website, and make videos focused on consumer electronics and gadgets. I love technology, I love the camera, I love teaching, and I love working with the biggest tech companies in the world.

You’re broken hearted - what tracks does your heartbreak playlist consist of?

Hit me with any 90s R&B playlist and hopefully I'll be alright.

What are the best TV shows of all time?

Lost, Breaking Bad, and Monday Night Raw.

Name some spots in Seattle that are good for a Tinder date.

I've literally never used Tinder in my life. I've always preferred to meet people in real life than make a connection in an app. Is that just me?!

Who’s your hero and where in Seattle would you take them out for a serious hang?

I'd probably say Martin Luther King, Jr. I recommended Mox Boarding House as one of my favorite spots, and that would be a cool place to take him - hang out, play some games, and see people from all different backgrounds connecting together to have fun.

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

I order all of my clothes from the East Coast from places like Jimmy Jazz and Dr. Jays. Seattle's fashion scene (or lack thereof) doesn't match up with my urban vibe!

What’s the area/ spot in town you’ll never be caught dead in?

Quite honestly, I typically am willing to try anything once, as long as it isn't illegal. So, there aren't any areas or spots that I wouldn't check out. No wait, there is that one super super heavy metal goth bar and that's just not my thing - but I'm sure you could convince me to go with you to check it out one time!

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

I don't know that's there's anything I never get to do. One of the perks of being your own boss and working for yourself is that you get to make time to do the thing you want to do.

What’s the most decadent / extreme dish you ever ate in Seattle and where did you get it?


Is there a hidden bar / hole in the wall in Seattle that you particularly like?


What’s the most expensive restaurant / spa / hotel you’ve ever been to in Seattle? How much did it cost and what did you get there?
