If you’ve been awake at all in 2019, there’s a good chance you’ve heard the name Marie Kondo.

My name is Eric Dubois, and I’m a 26-year-old living in Ottawa, Canada. I work in a field that requires me to be constantly on the move, talking to new faces and creating different connections every day. My girlfriend and I spend our free weekends in MTL or TO, checking out new Airbnb’s, places to eat and managing our dog’s Instagram account. I’m not kidding.
