But what you can’t call the Prince George native, is someone who is lacking a good story to tell. From living on a Mexican nudist beach to spinning for a Naomi Campbell photo shoot, Riki’s penchant for breaking new ground and doing away with a plan has landed her some amazing opportunities.

Chris Holmes. Randy Staub. Jim Vallance. Rick Irvine had every intention of adding his name to the storied list of northern B.C. products who went on to influential careers in the recording industry. “I aspired to that when I went down to Vancouver and went to school.

In today’s fast-paced technology driven world, artists, designers and businesses are becoming increasingly dependent on each other. After all, innovation, style and creativity can translate into big money for those willing to take the risk.

That is why they are looking to creative professionals for innovative solutions and approaches. As a result, digital media has become a burgeoning field for creative types and businesses alike. In fact, some of the most interesting things happening in pop culture right now come as a direct result of hard working creative professionals.
