About Robert Sutherland

Robert Sutherland (or Sutherland604 around the net) proudly calls Vancouver home despite spending the better part of 20 years living in three other provinces. Born in Ontario, raised in New Brunswick, survived in Alberta for nearly two years, he now calls East Vancouver home. After graduating college at Vancouver Film School Robert knew he wanted to be in the entertainment industry in some capacity. He took his humour and charisma to the blogosphere and now his writing can be found here weekly in the Video Game Digest, monthly in Ion Magazine, all over the fashion, music & sports sections on Vancitybuzz.com and, since the site was pretty much named after him, Vancouver Concert Addicts. Of note: Robert loves making secret handshakes and tweeting while drunk.
