  1. Where do you call home? Two places: Toulouse, France, and Winnipeg.
  2. What do you love most about it? I was born and raised part of my life in Toulouse. It has a rich history and culture, and beautiful monuments. I have lived in Winnipeg for more than a decade. What I love the most about the city is its city/country feel.
  3. Born and raised here or Johnny-come-lately? I already answered. J
  4. Is it a winter wonderland or summertime paradise? Anyone who has lived in the ‘Peg knows how long and cold our winters are. So, summer is a very special time of the year for us. People spend their time outdoors — and squashing mosquitoes when the night comes. ;-)
  5. What’s your commute like? I work from home, so I don’t have to worry about it. However, compared to a city like Vancouver or Paris, traffic is very light.
  6. What do you do on a day off? Complete days off are rare for me. But when I take breaks from work, I like walking with my dogs, taking pictures, spending time with friends, and watching movies. In a nutshell, regular stuff.
  7. It’s my first time in town. Where should we go? It depends on your interests. But I would strongly recommend checking out the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, which is taking place right now. It’s one of the biggest Fringes in North America.
  8. Is there anything you’d change about it? The only thing that I don’t like about Winnipeg is the way many people drive.
  9. Where do you go when it’s time to get away? France. I still have family there.
  10. Favourite local landmark? The Forks.
  11. Best local event or festival: Winnipeg Fringe Festival.
  12. Favourite local team: The Winnipeg Jets
  13. Favourite local celebrity: Ash Koley.
  14. Time to shop. Historic downtown or Big Box Land? St. Vital Centre all the way!
  15. Favourite Mom & Pop shop: Not really family-owned, but the Studio 2000 hair salon gets my vote. The owners are among the nicest business people I know.
  16. Favourite local restaurant: Sizzling Dhaba. Great East Indian cuisine and lovely owners!
  17. Best place to grab a coffee or tea: Baked Expectations. The perfect spot to hang out with friends. They have some of the best cakes in the city.
  18. Grocery store or farmers market? Grocery store.
  19. Tell us something only locals know: Winnipeg has been the Slurpee Capital of the World for 14 straight years.
  20. What does supporting local mean to you? Without local businesses, there is no economy. That’s all there is to know. J

Jesse is a typical class clown. Born and raised just north of the Toronto, he fell in love with the City on school trips to the ROM and the Science Centre. He tried Vancouver for a few years, but the call of home was too strong to resist. Today he lives in the North-East Upper Beaches. (What? It’s a thing!)
