I love living a harmonious life, feeling the earth beneath my feet, and going for adventures into the wild.
I've been a happy vegetarian since 2003, and a vegan since late 2008, (I also love raw-food cuisine). I don't drink alcohol and I don't do ANY kind of drugs (even prescription and shelf drugs) as a personal choice. I guess you could call me kind of straight-edge, but that doesn't mean that I don't know how to have a good time. ;)
Although I don't judge anyone in their diet, drinking and drug use... I have to admit that I would find it difficult to consider someone for a serious long-term relationship unless they had (at least) similar habits (but nothing is impossible).
Even though my studies have focused mainly on the visual arts, I have since expanded my passion for the arts to a much broader scale.
My parents had me grow up to the sounds of the classical composers (Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky being my favorites) and I've kept a special appreciation for the classics to this day.
Now music permeates every aspect of my life, and is the art that is most strongly linked to my emotions.
Photography, film making and acting were next to follow. Inspired by visionaries such as David Lynch, Tim Burton, Salvador Dali, and many more... my love for this medium keeps growing with every project.
Recently, I have rediscovered a passion for poetry, dance and stage performance that have been long absent in my life. I suspect my latest adventures at this years Fringe festival are likely to blame for this renewed interest.
I've been practicing martial arts since 1994 (Aiki Ju-Jitsu, Karate, Tai Chi, Kobudo) and am an assistant teacher for a dojo on the south-shore of Montreal.
Since 2009, I have moved the arts more into the background to focus on going back to school and pursuing a career in natural medicine.
All of my life, I've been listening to people, giving them advice and helping them out in their times of need, as just a natural inclination. Now I've decided to transform that inclination into a true path of study and mastery.
I graduated in 2012 and now hard at work building my practice and seeing clients. Of course, I'm continuing my studies in Homeopathy, Herbology, Nutrition, Chinese Traditional Medicine, Hypnosis, Sexology, Reiki, and many more complementary subjects.
With the focus of living a long, happy and healthy life, I "talk the talk" and "walk the walk" of maintaining a healthy body, mind and spirit, with regular exercise, daily meditation, and a positive attitude towards life... and hopefully others will be curious and inspired about this way of living as well.
I am very blunt and honest with people because I believe that "beating around the bush" and "polite white lies" serve no one.
I strive to always keep a positive attitude and opinion of the circumstances around me. I'm a strong believer in karma and the old adage : "You reap what you sow...", so I do what I can to bathe my surroundings in the most positive light. I am extremely open-minded, always up for adventure and constantly curious to learn something new.
I've traveled extensively, and jump at every opportunity to do so again. I've evolved from experience and experimentation and don't plan on stopping any time soon.
