Big thanks to the senior photo editor at Forbes magazine in NYC who assigned me to photograph Kik Messenger's founder, Ted Livingston in Waterloo. Due to quite a few restrictions, I was told to only photograph Ted in a candid and natural way "fly on the wall style" while he was being interviewed by the Forbes writer, Parmy Olson who flew all the way in from the UK just to do the interview during lunch at the Bauer restaurant.
Thanks to Parmy for helping me to get Ted to pick up his phone which was what the photo editor wanted for the shot. Big thanks to Chris for helping to navigate directions and photo assist.

I seem to remember a few Forbes mags growing up in my childhood home. Dad if you are up there reading another Forbes article, this one is for you and for my uncle Wayne who religiously follows Forbes.
Some outtakes from our time together are below along with a little iphone pic of Parmy and Ted braving the winter cold.
