What’s your name?
Do you have any nick-names?
“Kels,” “Kelso,” or “K-Norms.”
What do you do?
I am a do-er of various things. That’s legit, that’s on my business cards and it has been for years, and my website and everything. I engage in a lot of different types of digital storytelling, and digital arts, and video making, and podcasting, and graphic design, and other types of art as well, so it’s a lot of creativity but, yeah, “do-er of various things.” That’s the best way to describe it I think.
What is your dream job?
I think Secondary school CTS teacher, so Career and Technologies Studies; teaching various things, I guess you could say.
Born in YYC?
No, I was born in Halifax, raised in Fredericton New Brunswick.
What brought you to Calgary?
I had a friend living here, from Fredericton, he had been living here a year and he said “after you finish art and design college, you should move to Calgary.” And I did, the day after I graduated.
How long have you lived in Calgary?
What do you love most about Calgary?
I like the fact that this city attracts ambitious, hardworking, and intelligent people.
How would you describe your (fashion) style?
I’ve thought long and hard about this, and I would say retro-inspired, urban-influenced.
Does anyone influence your style?
You know the actor “Late, Great” Steve McQueen. There’s a professional skateboarder names Gino Iannucci, he’s a stylish guy, east coast guy, very stylish. And GQ Magazine, not to name one person, but to name a source of fashion.
What’s the latest TV series that you’ve binge-watched?
I’m not a huge TV guy. Maybe if the NBA finals is considered a TV show, I binge-watched the NBA finals, in real time. In terms of a show that I ploughed through, HBO’s The Night Of.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I think for me, Rome would be a great place because there’s so much history there and based on what I’ve read it just seems like there was so much drama there. It was like a soap opera, but in real life and I think it’s pretty cool.
What is your first or best memory of Village Ice Cream?
Eavesdropping on random conversations while waiting in the mid-summer line at the Victoria Park location.
What’s your favourite flavour and why?
Melted Chocolate because I like chocolate anything and everything, I think chocolate just rules.
If you could share a Village Ice Cream with anyone in the world, who would it be?
I would say Lourdes Juan because she would probably pay for it.
