Featured Vancouverite: Brady Dahmer

Hometown: Kitchener, Ontario

How long have you been a Vancouverite? Eight and a half years

Leader, Teacher, Connector, Engager. I run a branding and communications firm Brady Dahmer Design (BDD) in the day and run the Projecting Change Film Festival by night.

Favourite Vancouver neighbourhood:
I love Gastown. It has so much character in its architecture and residents. It reminds me of some of my favorite Canadian and European cities.

Your best Vancouver haiku:
Vancouver rain drives
People inside they gather
Celebrate friendship

Favourite Vancouver memory:
Watching the sunset on a crystal clear evening while dining at the Observatory on Grouse Mountain.

Five essential items for a Vancouverite:
A big appetite. The chefs here can whip up the most amazing feasts.

Advil! The mixologists can mix up the most delicious cocktails that can really sneak up on you.

Taxi number because they are never around when you need them.

A food dictionary for all your friends who are trying out new vegan, raw, experimental diets with ingredients you’ve never heard of.

Patience, it’s a much slower city than people expect, so sit back and enjoy it.

    Hi there,

    First, congrats on the Brady’s feature!

    I would like to recommend Brian Noppe, he is celebrating his 20 years as a pro photographer in Vancouver and have been photographing some amazing personalities around here, also he was a month ago on CTV talking about the iPhone photography workshop, called iPhonography 101 that he just started to teach in town and it’s one of the first in Canada!


    • Thanks for the recommendation Regina! I will reach out this week.

    Hi Everyone,

    I would like to personally recommend someone who is looked upon as the ultimate Vancouverite. She has done lots for the Vancouver community in the way of sales and marketing, specifically as one of the most sought-after brand ambassadors in Vancouver. Her name is Frances Hui of FHS Events, and let me not forget to mention the fact that she has practically lived in Vancouver all her life. She is pretty known in her circles as one of the most well connected individuals in Vancouver, particularly in the areas of business, social media, and nightlife.

    Lets Give It Up for Ms. Frances Hui!


    • Thanks for getting in touch Eric! I’ll reach out to Frances this week.
