Clarity in High Park

I’ve been a city kid all my life.

At one point in my life, I was labelled an ‘at-risk youth’. My life wasn’t going in the right direction.

But a lot of people just need someone to believe in them. That was the case for me.

I was hustling bad things in Toronto, around North America then Internationally. It was good money, but I knew it was wrong and wasn’t what I wanted to do. Took the things I learned from that and applied it to legitimate businesses.

And two years ago my business partner and I started Blast Marketing, an experiential marketing company. This is my first business where I actually had the intentions of helping others and giving them jobs. Ironically it’s been my most profitable venture.

I also work with the city’s homeless. This is something that’s very important to me.

So I’m a very busy guy, and I give a lot of myself.

But sometimes I need to get away from it all.

Coming to High Park has always been a pleasure for me.

I come here to get some clarity, look at the green space, and enjoy nature.
