Name: Tina Walczak

What business or organization are you involved with? Hiilite Web Design and Marketing Agency

What is your role with that organization? Chief design officer

What’s your favourite thing about living in the Okanagan? My favourite thing about living in the Okanagan is that it is the hidden gem of Canada, because whenever anyone comes to visit they are in awe of its beauty and the culture that they experience.

If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would you choose and why? If I could have lunch with anyone in the world I would choose David Kelley, because he teaches creative confidence and design thinking. I admire him, and his ability to articulate design processes.

What’s your go-to happy place? My go-to happy place is Knox Mountain.

What are you most proud of? I’m proud of my relationship. My husband is not only my best friend, he’s my mentor and business partner. I’ve grown a lot in the past few years because of his support.

What are the top three things on your bucket list?
1. Ted talk speaker;
2. Travel India;
3. Grape stomping.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? I have eaten a grub from my friend’s garden and I would advise anyone that if you think it is a good idea, it is not.

Latest movie or book? Universal Principles of Design by William Lidwell

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? My best gift ever was the planning of our wedding by our friend Dina who surprised us with a beautiful ceremony at Christleon Manor.

If today were your last day, how would you spend it? If today was my last day I would call everyone I know and remind them of their natural gifts and to tell them I love them. Then have a very large party following skydiving!!
