Name: Kerry

Age: 32

What neighbourhood are you from? Jarvis and Isabella

What do you 'do'? I own an eco-ethical clothing store on Yonge Street called, Green Is Black.

How long have you been in Toronto? 3 years

What's your story?

In high school, I made all of my clothing out of reclaimed material and also did some modeling. Post-secondary wise, I went into social services in non-profit and I just decided to make the switch to for profit. I felt like I could give people the choices that I thought were available and the ability to vote with their dollar for what they believe in. The store is a good combination of my interests.

Favorite thing(s) about Toronto:

The neighborhoods. I like how it's divided into neighborhoods. And the people.

Least favorite thing(s) about Toronto:

The pollution.

You have 24 hours to spend with someone who's never been to Toronto before - what do you do?

I would take them to brunch at Pulp Kitchen and then, I would take out an AutoShare car to visit all of my favorite neighborhoods like Kensington and Leslieville. For lunch, I would take them to Camros for BeauVega dessert. I would take them to dinner at Live and then, take them out dancing to one of the many neat clubs.

One thing that your friends/family don't know about you:

Sometimes, I might not go out if I have a really great book. I might say I'm not up for it.
