What we do.....
We have branded ourselves as "everyday tourists" as that is our approach to life. We are both freelance writers focused on all aspects of urban living, design, development and travel. Topics include: condo living, urban playgrounds, public art, parks, plazas, street activities, book reviews, tourist attractions and activities, restaurant and cafe culture. Fun titles include: "Sleeping Around In San Francisco, Thrifting in Vegas, Window Licking in Paris and Curse of Minimalism.
Melissa McCarville, Regional Public Relations Manager recently emailed "This is a fantastic piece about Lincoln Park (Chicago)! Love your detail and the places you mention are just perfect. Great, great, great story. You captured the essence of living there - and I can say that because I did for 4 years!"
Richard has a regular column on urban living and design in the Calgary Herald, as well as another on architecture in Condo Living magazine. He is a champion of Calgary as an urban playground and an advocate for the urban living in the 21st century.
In May 2013, Richard received the White Hat Media Award from Tourism Calgary for his writing about Calgary as an urban tourist destination. His mantra is "linking vision with reality."
Richard’s knowledge in urban development, planning, media and public relations allows him to consult with individuals, small businesses and not-for-profit organizations to develop strategic plans, ]and SWOT reviews.
Brenda's experience is in health promotion, annual reports and website content. She has a regular column in the Calgary Herald called "Room With A View" that profiles interesting Calgarians and their favourite room in their house. She loves to write about "treasure hunting" in thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets and on-line.
Brenda is all about keeping life simple and living in the moment.
