I grew up in the Netherlands, came to outside of Edmonton near Devon in 2002, and did my degree at the University of Alberta. Immediately after graduating, I went to San Francisco. Thought I was going to stay there, then I ran into visa problems.

So I ended up back here. I came back with the intention of just staying with my parents and getting my next career move sorted out.

I ended up moving here, to Oliver at the end of March.

I don't think of it as being trapped in Edmonton.

There's a lot of stuff with the development of the Brewery District, so many local businesses you can support and there's a real mix of people here. It's really diverse.

I can walk to so many things. I don't have to worry about having a car.

I just fell in love with the neighbourhood.

I like that this area is close to downtown but not right downtown.

I bike to work everyday. I work like 10 minutes away.
This is my first year here, but I’m going to try to bike year-round.

I mean, I have a car but I barely drive it now.
