Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #14: Joe Bonsu, Mark Williams & Shawn Cuffie, Comic Book Creators, Heroes of the World

Continuing our look at the people who knew me back when I was more focused on creating comics than I was on my studies in business and social sciences, allow me to introduce some gents who accompanied me through many a trench as we sought to legitimize our […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #13: Nadine Kennedy, Artist & Blogger

Nadine knows me from a life before I’d ever realized what I’d get up to as a writer — Casey Palmer the comic book artist, manning booths at local comic and anime conventions with my creator-owned series Fish & Chimps and a number of other projects I was always working […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing Their Stories in a Digital Age — #12: Jon Crowley, Writer, Attention Industry

I first crossed paths with Jon in ye olde days of Twitter, long before it became the “it” place to be and we still partied at people’s houses, never dreaming of earning a pay cheque from this digital hustle. He was the guy I’d often see at birthday celebrations […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing Their Stories in a Digital Age — #11: Marcia Reid, Founder and Content Curator, BS7

I first met Marcia at a joint 3SHAHs x Black Sebath event uptown, and from our conversation then I knew I’d met someone strong in her conviction, unafraid to live life through her own principles and paradigms. When I asked her to submit to Tales from the 2.9, […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #10: Kevin Kelly, Co-Founder, #devto

Kevin’s one of the few people in my digital life who knew me well before my journey into a full-fledged blogger ever really began. Introduced through mutual friends, he’s actually one of the people who got me to go to my first tweetup in 2010, and I haven’t looked […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #9: Natalie Preddie, Blogger, The Adventures of Natty P

In my journey through blogging so far, I can tell you one thing with absolute certainty — it’s hard to find bloggers who are genuinely nice people, not coming at every interaction with some ulterior motive, ready to take advantage at the slightest whiff of an opening. Natalie Preddie is […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #8: Brione Wishart, Filmmaker, TREPFUEL

Just past a week into Tales from the 2.9, and I’ve met so many amazing Black Canadians creating all sorts of content, reminding me that the stuff we consume online isn’t limited to bloggers — in 2016, we have creative souls out there putting together content that’ll suit just about any […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #7: Lina “Reese” Wright, Blogger, Reese Speaks

Behind every good blogger’s a good network, and much is the case with Lian “Reese” Wright. When I became a Dad, the parent blogger community almost immediately reached out, connecting me to plenty of other parents sharing their journeys online. One such group linked me with Reese and everything […]

Some years back, a number of friends and I connected over Twitter, forming a group that loved good food, fun times, and cracking wise as often as possible. Marcel Dee is part of that group — Team Trolling — and has been many things over the years: a blogger, […]

Tales from the 2.9 — The Black Canadians Sharing their Stories in a Digital Age — #5: Amanda Nunes, Blogger, Heartless Girl

While Amanda and I have run through different social circles as bloggers, I’ve found her nothing but kind each time we have crossed paths. Her submission for Tales from the 2.9 is a testament to the fact that one doesn’t need to feel boxed in by their race — […]
