“Sex with Dr. Jess” Toronto’s Most Eligible Bachelorette: Briony!
Briony is what we like to call a bit of a renaissance man…but a lady of course. With a wide interest in many different areas, she excels in the arts, music, sports and much more. Born and raised in the dairy capital of Canada, Woodstock, this small town girl has come to Toronto and flourished. Starting out in Broadcasting she spent a number of years on air in Radio and even excelled further hosting a Sports TV show. These successes led Briony to expand her many talents and discover her niche in the newspaper industry where she is currently a successful Marketing Executive at NOW Magazine.
On top of the busy advertising world she lives in, this sassy go-getter is constantly doing freelance art projects on the side for many clients who have an appreciation for her special approach to her craft. In particular, the rare combination of her painting talents, paired with her cleaver approach to every project, is creating opportunities to build her own distinctive brand. A brand for which she intends to expand with her own website in the near future. With a unique ability to work with a variety of different mediums, she is always creating and finding new ways to express her art.
When she isn’t working like a mad woman, you can find her attending a variety of musical shows, concerts and festivals. As well, Briony especially enjoys attending fundraisers, sporting events, and hitting up a number of Toronto’s hot spots.

Things I’m passionate about: So many things in life should be done with passion. If your’e not passionate about anything you do, you shouldn’t be doing it.

People say that I am: A joker, always laughing and my hair is full of secrets
My ideal partner is: Above the standard qualities of honesty, intelligence and drive; fellow needs to practice spontaneity regularly, appreciate good music, love sports (+handle my sports betting hobby) and bonus points to those who can grow an epic beard. Nothing sexier.

I’m not bragging but I: I have some of the best friends and people in my life – oh, and I can aggresively dominate anyone in Limbo.
A talent that may surprise you: Well that’s a secret.
Three artists you’ll find on my iPod: Probably the most loaded question of all…I jump between Daft Punk, Bowie and right now in love with Future Islands but I love Dubstep, Hiphop and all things classic rock.
My dream vacation: Anything warm near an ocean. Has to be adventurous and involve activities most people are too scared to try.
