This is super cool. I’ve been named to Ace Burpee’s 100 Most Fascinating Manitobans for 2013.

I believe most of Dave’s story is yet to be written. He’s been known for many a thing over his life in Winnipeg. He’s always walked on the edge of outstanding in his many different roles in our lives. If you don’t know him, you will and probably should. This year was a very different year for Dave Shorr. Diagnosed with colon cancer, he was open, clear and direct with his journey, yet never was there a sense of sadness or resignation. His future was always bright, now it’s brighter. He knows who he is.

I got to know Ace first when he was the Director of Promotions for Power 97 and CJOB when we were working together at Corus radio. He went on to HOT 103, I went on to FREQ 107 and we joined forces again when I joined Astral Media’s Winnipeg promotions team. It was exciting being there at the time and getting to see Ace’s amazing talent flourish right before my eyes. Ace Burpee has been a major influence on my career in content creation and brand growth.

So many awesome people have been featured by Ace over the years and I’m so honoured and humbled to be included in this great group of people.
