EMCEE: FEET BANKS I Powered by
Feet Banks was raised by wolves in Northern British Columbia until his biological parents opted to relocate the whole family to Whistler when he was 11 years old. He graduated from Pemberton High School in 1994 and was awarded a (fake?) gold watch from the Whistler Chamber of Commerce the next year for his busboy skills at Sushi Village. He attended the University of Victoria to study writing and film and, after graduating, returned home to the mountains to continue living the dream. He currently edits Mountain Life Magazine, writes blogs for Tourism Whistler and has held a weekly movie column in the Pique Newsmagazine for 14 years.
