Drew Penner

Digital Journalist

Drew Penner is one part free spirit and one part journalism nerd. Living on Vancouver Island after stints in Alberta and Toronto, the creative-minded writer and photographer has seen enough of the country to know there's so much more to explore.

Every adventure -- from electronic music escapades to backcountry rambles -- brings new opportunities to make friends and try new things. If you don't catch him sipping Americanos at his favourite coffee shops you might bump into him traveling between unique locales, digging in the crates for records, or browsing his local magazine shop.
