HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE A MAVERICK?
“If there was a circle they are the people on the outside and see stuff coming in, they’re not in the centre. They generally don’t play well with others. They’re driven, they’re high risk for sure, they don’t really conform. They like to see. They’re not afraid of new ideas, they’re very afraid of old ideas. They’re generally extroverted. Mavericks kind of put their personality on the line. It’s something hardwired in the DNA that’s very different from other people.”
WHY J WAS INTERVIEWED
I met J at Dealmaker Media’s Grow Future of Business Conference which brings together startups from all over Canada and the West Coast. 2013 was about the future of innovation, growth and entrepreneurship, curating an environment that brought together technology pioneers, founders, executives, influencers and investors who are passionate about identifying problems worth solving. J was included as it was soon apparent he was disrupting the film industry. J is direct, honest, upfront and very funny.
