Darren Biedermann in this episode is a real treat! You see, every family has one. That relative who you just aren't quite sure what planet they came from. They move to a beat of their own drum, are eccentric, have no boundaries and well, to put it mildly, just a little off the wall. In our family it is my cousin Darren Biedermann. There are hundreds of words that could describe him...creative, driven, gifted, entertaining, idealic, unrelenting, whimsical, crazy, inspired, slightly irrational....and it could go on for pages. We may not understand him, but we all love and respect him for what he does. Being with him for 10 minutes makes you feel like you have been picked up by a tornado and thrown out the other side. There is no possible way of keeping up with him and the speed of ideas and thoughts going through his head. I think his brain sparks faster than the finale at a fireworks show.
He has recieved many awards over the years but today is definitely one to be very proud of. He will be receiving the Calgary Small Business Philanthropist Generosity of Spirit Award. We are all proud of him and the difference he is making in the community. Oh...and if you want to look and feel like you have just popped out of the pages of a men's fashion magazine, his store is the one you want to visit.
