Karyn Kumhyr

What is something you enjoy about the St. John’s/Scotia Heights/Luxton/North End/Point Douglas neighbourhood?

I don’t know them at all, but I’m always open to exploring new places!

Why are you a member of Bannerman Green?

A combination of supporting sustainable living, and needing to find more acceptable/affordable housing.

If you plan/want to live at Bannerman Green, what are you most looking forward to?


What is your favourite band or musician?

I can’t pick only one!! Jennifer Nettles (Sugarland); Kinley Dowling; mostly I listen to Broadway musicals…

Have you started any new hobbies during COVID19?

I’m learning to play the piano! And have spent a LOT of time enhancing my video editing skills.

What is your favourite season?


What is a TV show that you loved to watch as a kid or teenager?

My mother could never understand how the only kid who had no interest in television grew up to work in theatre…

Would you rather wear only one colour each day, or have to wear 7 colours each day?

Surround me with multiple colours – I’ve had to wear black too often at work!

Would you rather host a large gathering, or attend a large gathering at someone else’s house?

Both equally.

Is there anything else you want to share about yourself/selves to the other members of Bannerman Green? Work? Family? Pets?

I grew up in the southeastern US, and my job often takes me to other provinces for months at a time, so finding home and community wherever I am is important to me.
