Name: Jason Zimmel

Occupation: All Battery owner

Age: 38

Hometown: Edmonton

If you get a chance go see: Bolt — it was the only thing my three-year-old boy, six-year-old girl, my wife and myself can all watch

Right now I am reading: How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

I’m listening to: silence (or kid songs)

At least once everyone should: ride an electric scooter

Most people don’t know I: used to be an accountant

Proudest or happiest moment: when my son and daughter were born

Biggest fear: heights

If I was appointed king of the valley I would: make better bicycle lanes and sidewalks

Before I die: I want to take my kids to Disneyland

Words I live by: Do it once, do it right
