My self-summary
Music is my passion. I have bachelors degrees in music and education from uOttawa. I moved to Ottawa for school, and fell in love with the city.

I'm the kind of person that usually likes to stay in and watch a movie or read than go out all the time, but a night out here and there doesn't hurt.

I walk most places. I think that if you can get somewhere in under an hour on foot, you should walk. But that's just me. My job keeps me in decent shape, but I enjoy playing sports occasionally, especially soccer, baseball, and ultimate frisbee.

I'm really shy at first, but I open up eventually. It just takes a while.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm working as the receiver at a pharmacy, while dabbling in musical composition.

I'm also conducting a community band right now. It's a lot of work, but it is very rewarding. I'm building up a collection of concert band sheet music, as well.
I’m really good at
Playing saxophone (I hope, after 16 years of playing)

The six things I could never do without
Besides the obvious air, food, water, friends and family?
1. My saxophone. See above.
2. Coffee. I think I may be addicted to Tim Horton's coffee. Also, their breakfast sandwiches are delicious.
3. Classical music. It's what my degree is in.
4. Youtube and Netflix. There's always something worth watching.
5. Good beer every now and then. Not that I usually drink bad beer, but you know what I mean.
6. Laptop. See number 4.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What my future will look like.
What to say (seriously, I overthink like crazy)
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes I'm out with friends, other times I'm at home watching netflix
