“I first met Eon about a year ago when we originally chatted about the project. With a perm smile always welcoming you, Eon was so nice to deal with and super easy going. We had discussed a few different options for the shoot location and agreed to shoot in his neighbourhood, Regent Park, by the new soccer field – two things that he holds dear to his heart. ” – Camila G

An Interview with Eon

Q. What is the best memory you have from a previous birthday?

A. Two come to mind – when I was 10, I had an asthma attack and had to leave my party to go to the hospital, but the love everyone showed was memorable. The second was a surprise party my parents and brother organized and I had no idea at all!

Q. How about the worst? And why?

A. The worst was when I was at school because I always had exams and my best friends were always done before my birthday so I would celebrate with friends that were cool but not my closest!

Q. What was the present you’ve received for your birthday that surprised you most?

A. My girlfriend made a donation to the Regent Park School of Music in my name to sponsor two young students. It was early in our relationship and I loved that thoughtfulness.

Q. Is there a food or dish that you insist on eating on your birthday?

A. Chicken in some way, shape or form usually comes to the forefront (!)

Q. What do you believe is the most important aspect of celebrating a birthday?

A. Doing what you want to do around whatever it is you have to do.

Q. Do you have any traditions or thing you always do to celebrate a birthday? What is it?

A. My family always sings to each other either in person or over the phone.
