HOK #22: Adam Gallaro

Meet Adam Gallaro. “Coffee is the one thing I’m good at. Seriously, it’s the one place I feel I have the ability to be myself, but also get to experience this sort of strange time travel, out-of-body experience. It’s impossible not to want to think deeper and look […]

HOK #21: Jessie Parker

Jessie Parker. “Ashcroft has been kind enough to lend us this space – first floor of the condo tower on Richmond near Island Park – to use as a gallery for the rest of this month. After that it’s being turned into shops. We have four local […]

HOK #19 – Daphne Volante

 Daphne Volante. “My mom teaches voice, so I kind of grew up in that environment. I did study music at the Royal Conservatory for a few months, but I really couldn’t afford to stay there. I’ve been in choirs here and there, but it’s mostly my mom […]

HOK #18 – Jose Real

Meet Jose Real. “Being a barber has become like a hip thing to do now, there are so many younger guys that are getting into it. It’s all about style now. Myself, I just kind of fell into it. I started out cutting my own hair, doing my […]

HOK #17 – Ben Holland

Meet Ben Holland. “Local people tend to know me as ‘the Lego guy’ but what people might not know is that I’m also a Quidditch player. About 6 or 7 year ago I was hanging out at Carleton University and found out that they had a Quidditch team. […]

HOK #16 – Kate Green

Meet Kate Green. “Even today when I say I’m going someplace, my mother worries. I travel all over the world in my work, and I have to remind her that it’s really because of her. When I was 16 years old I travelled with my parents through Nepal. […]

HOK #14 – Jasmine Joshua

Meet Jasmine Joshua. “I love soccer, it’s one of my favourite sports because it’s fun and I can play with my friends. My team is the Fisher Park Dragons. We’re doing pretty well so far. We won today and I’ve scored two goals already this season. I play basketball […]

HOK #012 – Emma Christie

Meet Emma Christie. “I started gymnastics when I was three – I’m 16 now, but didn’t go into competitive until I was eight, which is really late. Usually you would go into the ‘petite elite’ when you are around five. I had a lot of skills to learn, so […]

HOK #011 – Colleen Lowrie

Meet Colleen Lowrie. “I had a first date all around this area. We were down at Westboro Beach, walking along the water and then we went for dinner. It was really nice, but super tense because we were going from being friends to being more, and neither of us […]

HOK #010 – Adam Osman

Meet Adam Osman. “I’ve worked here at Dovercourt Recreation Centre for the last five years or so. You can often find me at the pool desk. I love the community here, and my co-workers. I think it’s a really welcoming place. Every day when I finish, it feels like […]

HOK #009 – Brian Wheeler

Meet Brian Wheeler. “My name is Brian Wheeler – ironic really as I’m a bike mechanic! About four years ago I was living in the Glebe, working as a barista at the Wild Oat, and I decided that I needed to make a change. I sold everything I own […]

HOK #008 – Michele White

Meet Michele White. “I love to travel, and I loved going to France, particularly Paris. I first went in my late 20s. I was working for a family, taking care of their children, and they took me along. I got to take a helicopter ride to a castle, and […]
