These People Are A-OK: Tim Janzen

Tim Janzen is widely regarded as Kelowna’s best dressed man. From the year 1988 at the age of 18 Tim moved into one of Winnipeg’s most notorious heavy metal rock and roll bars as its live-in bartender. Paying little attention to border crossing formalities he soon moved to Seattle to be in the midst of the grunge revolution and developed a lifelong affection for American culture which led him to take up residence at the Four Queens in Vegas to marry one of the great loves of his life.

Following his Toronto bride home he traded in his plaid shirt for a white lab coat as a quality control expert for Goshen rubber corporation by day and notorious Young Street pornographer by night. Growing associations with spooks, arm dealers, assassins, and well placed Cuban political figures led him to Cuba for a career as a smuggler which he wisely aborted and fled to the relative safety of Mexico cities barrios leaving an invaluable collection of female portraiture later to be destroyed by hurricane Ivan. Later spending time in the historic meeting place city of Don Juan and Carlos Castaneda, Tim befriended Oaxaca’s transvestite prostitute community. Tim found himself well suited for the life of leisure in Mexico, incidentally all the while maintaining complete abstinence from consuming drugs or alcohol while living in the mescal capital of the world.

He moved finally to Kelowna where he was heavily headhunted as an agent to Canada’s top artists, leaving after a record breaking one day tenure. In a sideways move to show production he crew chiefed such talent as David Bowie, Cher, Blue Man group, etc.

He now mops the stages his crew once built but still maintains close personal ties and inroads to the Industry. Experiencing highs and lows of this life, while enjoying deep intimacies with the thousands of women who have flowed through his life, often necessitating eating chocolate covered almonds out of bulk food bins, he brings the full weight of his hard won experience and unparalleled expertise in the world of femininity as Canada’s foremost dating coach.
