Driven: Doug Wallace
June 21, 2012
A veteran of women’s lifestyle journalism, he has experience working in the fields of music, film, fashion, beauty, food and home décor. And lover of the health benefits of baby aspirin.
What’s your morning routine? Breakfast of champions?
I start working at 6:30 or 7 a.m., so I usually get super-high on coffee, and plan my full day plus everyone else’s. I write a hundred emails, then wait for the rest of the world to wake up. Breakfast of champions includes a host of vitamin pills, including the baby aspirin, so I stave off not only deep-vein thrombosis but senility. Oh wait, too late.
I cannot live without my….?
Have I mentioned baby aspirin? Tequila would also fit in here. I’m going with iPad, because I’d wear it on a chain around my neck if the cool kids did.
Favourite city in the world?
We just got back from visiting a friend in Osaka, which is like the “Montreal” of Japan, all sexy and fun. Everyone’s stylish and the food’s great. London, though, is the coolest city in the world.
Two things you don’t know about Mr. Doug Wallace?
He is published in Pig Latin. People mistake him for Kurt Browning at the airport.
If you weren’t a journalist, what would you be?
Can I say Roy Orbison or do I need to be practical?
