TEDxTuesday is a weekly installment featuring a different TEDxSFU 2012 speaker leading up to the annual conference in September. For week #2, we focus our gaze on Simon Fraser’s own Roman Onufrijchuk, a senior School of Communications lecturer since 1983 with an award-winning history and a vocabulary to match! Passionate about broadcasting and community articulation, he has hosted for CBC radio, directed The Knowledge Network, and taught at universities across Canada. Dr. Onufrijchuk is currently interested in the implications of new media on the human condition. Fascinating!
TEDxSFU: Tell us something no one knows about you.
RO: As a child I had tuberculosis of the bone in my ankle and wore orthopedic shoes and had a brace up to Grade 5.
TEDxSFU: Who is your biggest inspiration?
TEDxSFU: Dogs or cats?
RO: Cats. Have lived with them most of my life even though I’m allergic to them.
