Q&A with Guy Watson

Where are you from and how long have you lived in Vancouver?

I originally hail from the Whitsundays in Australia.  I moved to Vancouver in October 2015 after living in Toronto for 6 months.


Tell us a little bit about yourself and your interests.

I love getting outdoors and experiencing as much as I can. Whether it’s a new coffee shop, hiking to the top of a mountain, skiing new runs or sitting and watching the sunset, I don’t mind what it is as long as I keep active.  I enjoy capturing these events via video and photos.

What interested you in working for Vancouver Mysteries?

I love challenging myself and solving puzzles.  What better place to do this than Vancouver Mysteries.  My role involves me to get out in the streets too and meet some wonderful people.

What are you most excited about in your new position with Vancouver Mysteries?

Spending time on the streets leading new games for excited future detectives and agents.

Who’s your favourite fictional detective?

I can’t go past Sherlock Holmes.  With all the TV versions and movies about the interesting character, he sits at number one on my list.

Who is your favourite crime-solving duo?

The Mystery Gang.  This is Scooby Doo and his friends.  Growing up with the cartoons really helped me choose these guys.

If you were a detective, what would be your crime-solving gimmick?

Always looking at my pocket watch.

What’s your favourite thing to do in Vancouver?

Walking around Stanley Park.  It is an easy escape to step outside the big city.

Where is your favourite spot in the city?

On the waterfront of Coal Harbour watching the seaplanes come in to land.  I guess it’s called landing even though it lands on water…hhhmmm.

What do you think is the most mysterious spot in the city?

Waterfront Station.  Look at the artwork in the main atrium, you might even see some of the numerous ghosts floating about.

If a tourist asked you for advice, what would you insist they must do while visiting Vancouver? (Other than a Vancouver Mysteries game, of course!)

Make a trip out to the Museum of Anthropology at the UBC Campus.  The museum itself is very interesting and there are some nice coastal walks to see too.

Thanks, Guy!
