Q&A With Local Tech Giant Kris Krug

January 27, 2009.

Each week, Scout poses 60 questions to a local who has made life in BC that much more interesting. They pick and choose which ones they’d prefer to answer, with a minimum response rate of 20. A Rorschach test, for sure…

Vancouver is much the richer for the awesomeness of Kris Krug – president of Raincity Studios, a fashion, music, and portraits photographer, technologist, and all around super cool dude.
