Let's see. I play the flute. Have been travelling around a
lot...currently settled in Toronto but open to life taking me
anywhere, in more ways than one.
I like to make people happy.
I'm a pretty laid back guy - it takes a lot to ruffle my feathers,
and I'm generally happy and easy-going. I'm at my best in small
groups, because I tend to form very close friendships with
What I’m doing with my life
Mostly playing the flute, with much gratitude for whichever universal forces have made this possible. Thinking about the future, occasionally panicking. I also love to bake. Lately I've been teaching a lot, which I'm finding really fulfilling. Ask me about one of my little kids...they (almost) always make my day, and I probably have a great story from the past week...
I’m really good at
Making to-do lists, overbooking myself and then complaining about
it, page-turning for pianists, giving directions, introducing
people to each other, organizing closets and refrigerators...
The first things people usually notice about me
My height usually stands out, or my eyes, which are a variable blue-grey-green. I did recently learn, though, that this is an optical illusion.

The six things I could never do without
My flute, my friends, my calendar app, my Netflix account, Mexican
food. That's only five. Umm wine? Also my cottage/lake/kayak setup
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My friends, my upcoming schedule, boys, my next meal...the usual.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a low-key time with a small group of friends: snacking or
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once met a man with a sense of adventure...
You should message me if
you feel like it. Why should you need a reason? I love meeting new
people. I've been away from Toronto for five years and I am very
keen on meeting new people, romantically or otherwise.
