Welcome to my Sunshine Coast.

My name is Laurie McConnell, and I have lived on the Sunshine Coast for 32 years.
I like sharing my experience of living here with people who love the Coast just like I do.
Click on the images below for a glimpse into the people, ideas and places of the Coast.

Oh, and this super-cool mural behind me was painted by Dean Schutz and can be found on Teredo St. in Sechelt!

My Work

I love using the Internet to communicate ideas, stories, send great products to buyers, and generally enable synergy and connection between groups of people. 17 years along and I still love what I do and who I do it for.
