  1. Hello,

    My name is Andrew Vieira. I’m a 21 year old Calgarian entrepreneur and the founder and CEO of PURO.

    My partner Omar Omari is a engineering masters student at the UofT. I spoke to him regarding getting some ethnography work done for our health and fitness company and he referred me to you guys.

    Please let me know if we could chat further.

    Kind Regards

  2. We would like to inform your research team that in the mid 90’s a group of artist in Kensington Market formed a collective to publish and produce Kensington Market artist and musicians. In 1999 we produced the only compilation cd, to feature original Kensington Market music.
    To document local art and music at end of the millennium we published The Spirit of Kensington Artzine .
    Our portfolio of collective artist is online at.

    We maintain a web site to promote the on-going work of Kensington Market artist and are committed to documenting the phenomenon of Kensinton Market arts.

    we keep several youtube channels where we continue to publish music videos and documentaries that feature local artist and musicians.

    on behalf of Global Sync Media,
    Marty Smith
