Name and Twitter handle: David, @DaveEsguerra
Occupation: Web Developer for Metro Vancouver, and Blogger for www.MePlusFood.com
What do you like most about your job? The people I work with, flexibility, and constant learning. For MePlusFood, obviously being able to go everywhere to find the best food, and travelling for the sake of eating.
A notable moment on Twitter? When the beautiful @KinaGrannis tweeted back at me <3
Your best tweet: Recently? Probably “#Detroit fuck ur home winning streak. Love the #Canucks” after we came back and beat them in a Shoot Out and snapped their 23 game home winning streak.
What did you want to be growing up? Parent’s said I always wanted to be a doctor, but I always remember wanting to be a video game developer. Neither happened. Now I want to be a crazy snowboarder like Travis Rice (check out www.artofflightmovie.com to find out why)
If you could have dinner with 1 person (live or dead) who would it be? Kina Grannis, picnic at the beach with our Taylor guitars! Really admire her singing and guitaring, and how she’s gotten so popular with the use of social media and being an independent artist.
Your claim to fame: Not really famous, but if anything being a blogger for @MePlusFood, and hopefully the release of my upcoming project…
Do you know of a hidden gem in our city? Just blogged about it – Tung Hing on Kingsway and Knight for probably the best Banh Mi in town.
If you were a superhero, who would you be and why? Colossus because I want to be taller, stronger, and indestructible for when I do stupid things while rollerblading and snowboarding. Or Silver Surfer, hopefully his surfing translates into snowboarding and who wouldn’t want to go to space?
Recommend a Twitter account that deserves some recognition?
@IamRomo – If only he had a smartphone we’d see some more of his awesome humour and sarcasm.
