He is best known for his TikTok posts, where he reviews all of his new experiences, whether he’s celebrating Canadian culture, sports games, or staple foods. His humor, sincerity, and curiosity are what captured the hearts of Canadians across the nation. His video trying a Nanaimo bar has 1.2 million views alone.
