Daniel Reyes

Chief Executive Officer

Who is Daniel Reyes? I launched #DoTheDaniel with the intention of creating a space for real content working with real people.

With a degree in Communications from Carleton University, I developed my experience in the world of marketing before blogging full time. I am an eternal student who is always trying to learn about the ever-changing world we occupy online and thrive in. As CEO of the business, a traveler at heart, foodie, and many other things, I continue to be an advocate of an industry we now call home.

I could never have created a successful business without the inspiration and beginnings working for FASHIONIGHTS.com. Now alongside my best friend & business partner Catherine Sugrue, we run the day-to-day doings of #DoTheDaniel around the world. An avid coffee drinker, lover of new experiences, supporter of good people, and all around dork who never takes himself too seriously… I like to believe that our success is based on the fact that we give you truest selves every day. 

 

Nicola Whyte

London UK Contributor

So, who is Nicola Whyte?  I am a Kiwi living in London, who is well known for my big smile and ready to laugh attitude.  I love to travel the world and immerse myself in the cultures I experience. My adventures around the world will bring to DoTheDaniel.com a worldly view and travel tips while visiting some of the best destinations.

By day I work for local government, helping to improve areas of London. By night I am a live music fan and blogger.  

My main philosophy is – ‘Go Everywhere, Try Everything!’ You can find me in local pubs around London, at the theatre, at the park or playing dodgeball in the local league.  Brunch is my favourite meal of the day, preferably in an offbeat café, although I am well known for my cooking and baking prowess.  As you get to know me, you’ll come to realize that my diary is full of exciting adventures, which I am excited to share with you all!

Most of my written work can be found in local blogs. I love shooting short nature videos and I recently got married to Maria, my beautiful life partner. We both enjoy the beach, rock concerts, movies, CrossFit and spending time with our cats at home. My passions go from collecting records to playing with my band and diving in the Caribbean. I’m also the official latin contributor for DotheDaniel.com so be ready to learn some Spanish! Espero que a través de mi colaboración te den ganas de visitar mi país. Viva México!

Who is Ro Nwosu?

I’m a yoga and movement teacher living in Renfrew, Ontario with a love for pie and good conversation. I love connecting people with creative ways to be active using the platforms of health and wellness. I’m the mother of an amazing boy who never stops dreaming and loves to build. 

Standing by the mantra to “Be Wild.” You can normally find me hiking, exercising, dancing, meeting new people and looking for new places to explore through my adventures. 

 

Bethany Freed

Vancouver Contributor

Who is Bethany Freed?

To start, you can call me Beth! And I’m just another 20-something girl who is fuelled by Starbucks and her passion for all things cosmetic. I grew up in the dance world surrounded by red lipstick and glitter, and that is where my love of hair and makeup began!

I lived in Toronto for 4 years, where I furthered my preforming arts education, but grew up on Vancouver Island where I am currently living. I am so lucky to call both places home. I can’t wait to bring you along on all of my beauty adventures, and to show off my slice of paradise on the West Coast.

Who is Joshua Langston? 
 
But first, coffee. I’m Joshua [or Josh – I don’t really care which people call me] and I wear a ton of hats (figuratively) and shoes (literally – I’m a shoe whisperer). If I listed off the wide array of things I do…I think I would sound like Daenerys Targaryen (insert 500 titles here), so let’s simplify it for now. I’m a fashion, lifestyle and travel writer, but I’ve worked in several facets of the industry including styling, fashion show production, content creation and PR. My love for the fashion industry started as a kid, watching Jenie Becker on Fashion TV. Growing up, my dad worked in Film & TV my whole life, so I spent a lot of time hanging out on Movie and TV show sets. I would often sneak off to the wardrobe trailers and hangout with the wardrobe costumers, playing amongst the racks of clothes. I thought they were the coolest people in the world, they literally transformed people and made magic. I love to travel and explore new continents, countries and cities and really immerse myself in the culture (and the food, obviously).
 
Music is also a huge part of my life, and I’m an avid festival goer, having gone to music festivals on 3 continents so far [North America, Europe and Africa]. When I’m not attending events, travelling or working, I can likely be found face-planted in a large bowl of Ramen, playing “imaginary-shopping-cart” on one of my [several] favourite shopping apps. I have been featured in The Vancouver Sun, FASHION Magazine, WWD [What they are wearing – New York Fashion Week] and WGSN to name a few.  I strongly believe that almost anything can be fixed with pizza. I’m excited to be part of the DoTheDaniel team representing the West Coast, and can’t wait to share more with you soon.
 
Ashlyn Dawson
 
Toronto Contributor
 

So who is Ashlyn Dawson? I am a full-time creative, part-time wanderer and an expert in the art of storytelling. My friends like to describe me as cultured, quirky and outgoing. My curiosity is what drives me to seek out new experiences. I am a sucker for new connections and enjoy sharing my love for food, travel and fashion with others. 

I am also the Creative Director at Berkeley Events’ five unique venues. In my spare time you can catch me lounging on my hammock with a good book, binge watching Family Guy on Netflix, exploring small towns across Ontario or eating an entire box of pizza. I am also a proud #BlackGirlNerd and have a deep love for anime, comic books and cosplay!

 

Annick Sheedy McLellan

Toronto Contributor

So who is Annick Sheedy McLellan?

I’m a storyteller with a soft spot for real, genuine, candid people and experiences. I’m an actress, a writer, a spoonie (if you’re not familiar with the term check out The Spoon Theory!), a soon-to-be podcaster, a model and a vegan.

My love of performing blossomed at a very early age when I would force my family members and my parents invited dinner guests to watch my many theatrical productions. I grew up in Ottawa where I began my professional career in the film & TV industry 19 years ago. Since then, I’ve loved to work and live in many different cities including Montreal, Calgary, Halifax, London (UK) and New York City, where I graduated from the conservatory program at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

I am ridiculously curious about pretty much everything and passionate about constantly learning – I’m always studying a new language (French is my mother tongue and I’m conversational in Spanish, Italian and German.) I really love mermaids, vintage shopping, reading all the books, fine-tuning my skincare routine and spreading #invisibleillnessawareness. These days, I’m living in Toronto, discovering new incredible places and communities and continuing to pursue my great big dreams.
