Who Needs #SquadGoals When You Could Be #TeamGalaxy

Over the last five years, I have had the pleasure of sharing some of the most incredible experiences. From meals with friends, to destinations around the world, and every exhilarating moment in between. I’ve made so many changes to my personal and professional life. While most of them are for the better, sometimes it’s also important to understand that some of them were lessons I needed to learn. As the next chapter of my life and the blog is underway with some exciting changes taking place, I decided to tell you why I am coming home to the Samsung Canada Galaxy family as my mobile device of choice for 2019. And some of the reasons might just shock you.

I know.. I know.. another mobile device you’re thinking. But I should give some context. When I first launched the blog in 2014, I was an avid Apple user. I believed in my iPhone5, Instagram filters, and making those awful collage photos like the rest of you did. When I first made the switch to Android, I was hesitant to say the least. I opted to work with Samsung Canada (who to this day has been one of the most collaborative experiences of my career because they understand who we are and what we do – both personally and professionally!)

Looking back now on the leap to Android, I don’t think I could ever go back. And it is 100% because of my experience with several Samsung Canada mobile devices over the years and the ease of use. Not to mention the camera capturing and sharing our #DoTheDaniel moments for you all to enjoy. Here are just a few!


Now, we should address the fact that for a few years, I wasn’t using a Samsung Canada device. We had a partnership with another brand that was an amazing experience and one that allowed me to see the world from a new perspective. That being said, similar to a lot of the moments I have been sharing as I slowly step back from the #DoTheDaniel limelight and work towards the goals I want in my own life personally, I am coming back to the things, people, and places that feel like home. When I recently watched all the excitement around the launch of the Galaxy S10 family of devices, it was almost instinct to that this was the phone for me.

Being a romantic sense of coming full circle, or some of the spectacular photos that the #SamsungCreator group of content creators are creating using the devices, it just feels right. Have you ever had one of those moments? To some degree in life, we usually think the proverbial grass is greener. And most of the time, pardon the cliché lyric, but as Justin Bieber says….

“But the grass ain’t always greener on the other side, it’s green where you water it.”

Getting back to the world of my personal choices, a hot topic of sorts over the years, I am excited about this chance. I am excited about a new phone that can capture my personal memories in the best way. I am excited about how easy it is to switch to a Samsung Device (be it from another Samsung device or another brand) – and I am most excited about being able to share the beauty of something new that feels like I am home again with you all.


You all know that I’ve never been a specs guy. I read and follow tech blogs for all the stats. What I share with you all is how it fits into my life. Can the phone keep up with me? Can it take and share the feeling of the moment that I am trying to share? Does it make sense with who I am at this point in my life? And yes. If I am being perfectly honest with you – The Samsung Canada S10+ checks off all of those boxes and so much more. And it’s why I am ready to finally come home to the team that always understood me more than most did over the years. It’s time to be a part of #TeamGalaxy now and for many many years to come as Samsung continues to drive innovation and inspiration around the world.
