Meet Sam. He makes his living in IT but his real love is hiking the local trails with his lovely wife of 34 years. Originally from the US, they moved to Vancouver in 2007 and still find it the most beautiful place they’ve seen. He thinks it’s important to seek out new experiences and to meet new people even as the years and decades pass. An avid reader of mysteries, occasional kayaker, bad pun appreciator, yoga practitioner, writer of so-so poetry, and a big believer in trying to make kindness an everyday occurrence. Now that’s something we can all live by.
