Name: Kevin Yee

Twitter handle: @kevvur

A notable moment on Twitter?

Exchanging back & forth tweets with @wandfc (Wanderlei Silva) for a few weeks (he’s my favourite MMA fighter). I met him when he came to visit Vancouver in December and he still recognized and remembered me from our Twitter conversations despite having 50k+ followers that constantly message him.

Your best Tweet:

Probably anything related to dog rescue/adoption news. I follow @BC_SPCA & @pawshdogspa and both do an excellent job spreading the word on our furry friends.

What did you want to be growing up?

I always wanted to grow up and become a crime fighting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. It wasn’t until I actually got older that I came to the sad conclusion that it wasn’t going to happen.

If you could have dinner with 1 person (live or dead) who would it be?

Bruce Lee.

I idolize that man because of how he was able to help break the barriers that were set against minorities back in the day. It’d be a once in a lifetime experience to be able to just spend some time picking his brain and getting to really know the man on a personal level and not just by what we see on screen.

Your claim to fame:

Everybody calling me by my last name (Yee) during elementary & high school. It didn’t bother me much so I just ‘rolled with the punches’ and thought nothing of it. Old high school friends still call me by it whenever I bump into them.

Do you know of a hidden gem in our city?

I’m not sure this place classifies as an actual hidden gem but I’ve always liked Capones in Yaletown. They play live jazz on Friday & Saturday so it definitely gives it that date spot vibe. Go for a nice stroll along False Creek after dinner and you’ve got yourself a nice way to wind down the night.

If you were a superhero, who would you be and why?

I’d be the ‘Prince of Persuasion’ so I could use my awesome persuasive powers to talk myself out of any sort of sticky situations I get myself into.

If you were a vegetable, what would you be and why?

I’d be a tomato so people would always debate about whether I’m a fruit or vegetable.

Recommend a fellow Twitterer that deserves some recognition?

My recommendation would go to @russco because I love reading his foodie blog (http://www.dailyslif.com/) and for introducing me to Serious Pie! Best. Pizzas. EVER!
