What is your name?
Matt Crowell

Where are you from and how long have you lived in Kelowna?
I am originally from Grand Prairie but have lived in Kelowna on and off for most of my life.

If you could go anywhere in the world right at this moment where would you go and why?
Antwerp, Belgium as it’s one of my favorite cities in the world. With all that has been going on in Belgium it would be nice to connect with old friends for a hello.

What is your favourite local store in Kelowna and why?
Gio Bean or Central Public House. I love the attitude Gio has every single day, it is a great way to start your day. I also love the entrepreneurial spirit the team has at Central. It is inspiring to eat there and it is also very helpful as I don’t buy groceries!

What is your favourite activity?
I love to travel when I get the chance.

What is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you?
My friends broke into my house when I was in Grade 12 and woke me up as if I was being robbed. When I woke, I ended up screaming in an extremely high pitched sound and ended up sounding like a girl. What was worse is they videotaped the entire event and played it at grad!

What is the most inspiring thing that has happened to you?
As a child I watched my mother work three jobs, it was very inspiring. Now as an adult, it drives me every single day.

Where do you volunteer or give back to in the community?
I have volunteered by coaching youth hockey in Kelowna as well as giving back to the Universities by speaking and mentoring groups of grad students on marketing and entrepreneurship at both UBCO and Okanagan College.
