ABOUT US

Patrick

Patrick is the creative producer for Urban Capers. If he’s not scouring the back alleys of Chinatown for street art, he’s searching for mid-century blueprints of TTC stations online. Patrick follows a simple philosophy when designing the hunts – look twice at everything you see in a city and question how and why it ended up where it is. He is fascinated in the story behind every building, street lamp and storefront, and is constantly looking for the connective threads that weave together the various histories of Toronto. An avid traveler, Patrick has been lucky enough to hike Leaping Tiger Gorge, snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, motorbike across Vietnam and eat sushi at the Tsukiji Fish Market. In his spare time, he’s either cooking or trying the latest beer at one of Toronto’s many craft breweries.

Simon

A haiku for you
So you can learn about me

Rachel

From 9-5, Rachel is an academic advisor at the University of Toronto. She is also an Urban Capers Hunt Host. In her spare time, she’s an avid home cook, Crossfit enthusiast, and aspiring gardener (on her tiny balcony). Rachel is happiest with a coffee in one hand and a book in the other.

Lissette

When she’s not laughing, she’s reading all sorts of biographies and International Development/Humanitarian Aid books, or dancing and singing to some good radio tunes. She really enjoyed her Bachelor’s in Political Science and Latin American Studies. After a year of happily working for UNICEF Peru, she’s back in Toronto and loves to converse with people who are interested in International Development.

Jodi

From the sunny jungles of Borneo, to the snowcapped Atlas mountains of Morocco, to the prim streets of Leslieville, Jodi has had her share of Indiana Jones-style adventure. The owner and founder of Urban Capers, she is a former Entrepreneur of the Year from CYBF and struck a deal with three dragons on Dragon’s Den. For her first scavenger hunt, she kidnapped the New Kids on the Block and held them ransom in a castle, leaving clues signed, “The Purple Thumb.” Sometimes her daughters will make a surprise visit to the hunt, to make sure you’re having fun.
