My name is Aaron Mallett and I have returned to Prince Rupert after spending around 10 years away in both Vancouver and Japan. I was born and raised here and had a great childhood filled with great friends and great memories. Unfortunately now that I am back I am noticing the town is severely in decay and personally I feel a huge disconnect since my family is my only connection here.
With all that in mind I’m hoping to discover some hidden gems in PR by interviewing people we consider community “characters” that have a positive outlook on life in the northwest and wish to share their unique lives and stories. It won’t be anything formal but I would like to record the interviewees on my HD camera using both video and images, and then edit up semi-professional blog posts.
What do you guys think? Would you like to volunteer yourself or someone you know?
In the same vein of reconnecting with the city, I’m also interested in meeting new friends who are like minded. I’m 29, half Japanese by blood, and my background has been mainly in IT. I’m interested in a wide variety of things ranging from environmental issues and rock climbing to travel and technology.
Thanks for reading!
