Sunil Chahal, 27, Sales Manager
Given the chance to time travel, Sunil Chahal wouldn’t hesitate to go back to the late 60s during the golden age of some of the greatest musicians that ever lived. Having given up meat recently, he’s been spending time exploring vegetarian cooking whenever he has time off from his position as a sales manager for an aircraft brokerage or you’ll spot him around the city having a good time with friends.
Tell us a little about what you do.
I work in sales for an aircraft brokerage, facilitating sales and acquisitions for pre-owned private jets. It all sounds a bit farfetched but it’s a very interesting industry.
Do you consider yourself an introvert?
I wouldn’t say so. The part I enjoy most about my career is interacting with a wide range of people from all over the world, and sharing stories as well as experiences.
If you could have your pick, who would be playing at your wedding?
Migos. The shock and bewilderment on the faces of all the old people at the wedding would be priceless.
I would definitely go back and check out the Woodstock Festival in ’69. Just a bunch of carefree hippies enjoying themselves to some of the greatest musicians to have graced this planet? Sounds like a great time to me.
– Sunil on a time period in history he would love to visit.
What was your favourite Saturday morning cartoon growing up?
Probably The Powerpuff Girls. They were made of sugar and spice and everything nice, do I even need to explain why?
Your favourite thing to learn about in your free time?
Right now, I’m spending a lot of time learning about vegetarianism and vegetarian cooking, stuff like that. I recently gave up eating meat so I’m working on expanding my culinary horizons.
Tell us one thing about you that surprises people.
My dislike for chocolate usually gathers a few looks.
You’re a walking encyclopedia on…
I may or may not know everything there is to know about the world of Harry Potter. I also may or may not be terribly ashamed about this.
Describe your ideal weekend.
Anything that takes my mind off of work, really. Be it cooking, hanging out with friends, going out and exploring the city, I think it’s important to be able to disconnect from your job and focus on your life outside of work.
The way to your heart is through…?
My stomach. Everyone who knows me would be able to tell you that.
