Tom Zillich

I cover entertainment, sports and news stories for the Surrey Now-Leader, where I've worked for more than half of my 30-plus years in the newspaper business.
My biggest thrill on the job is meeting and writing about people who are creative, talented and achieve great things.
Passions in my "other" life include playing bass on local concert stages, eating Mexican food, swimming in sun-soaked pools and cheering the Canucks to just one (ONE!) Stanley Cup before I die.
