Pepper Rodriguez

Pepper Rodriguez has been in the news reporting and trade publication business for more than 30 years. Starting off in Manila as an assistant editor for the Gifts and Home trade publication, he has had stints as a news editor for the UPI and the English arm of the Spanish news agency EFE. Since emigrating to Canada in 2000, he has been a fixture in various Calgary real estate publications and is currently the editor of New Home Living and Condo Living magazines. The only thing he loves more than touring show homes is adding to his comic book collection. He has also just started collecting vinyl records again, and is still plotting to ship his considerable collection from the Philippines but has yet to find a way to do it in an economically-sound manner.
