My self-summary
I'm a wanderer and a traveler. I love new experiences people and places. I'm a geek when it comes to comic books (specifically Spider-man "With great power comes great responsibility") cartoons and superheros. I've been an elementary teacher and I'm currently taking a hiatus from educating to recharge and explore my passion of food and sustainability.
What I’m doing with my life
I just did a 10 day Vipassana Meditation retreat and it gave me a wonderful new way of looking at life. Over the next few weeks I will working to assimilate its teachings into my life and enjoying the peace that I now have in my mind. Currently I'm passionately learning what I can about farming, gardening and permaculture to forward my goal of owning a farm and becoming a farmer. Last year I was voted in as one of the Board of Directors for the Calgary Permaculture Guild and one of my main focuses is developing the permablitz system.

A couple of years ago I did some woofing and gained some hands on experience about permaculture and I got my Permaculture Design Certificate. For one month I was on Salt Spring Island and the other month I was in Kenya helping to create an edible, sustainable food source for two different schools! What a way to celebrate my birthday!!
I’m really good at
I'm great at listening and connecting with people and students alike. A fair cook to boot, I love fresh food that is well prepared with love and good people to eat it with. Cribbage is my game of choice and I regularly beat my elderly opponents.

I love watching cartoons because they teach children how to deal with conflict (good and bad) plus I love how cartoons show different ways to tell stories, it's a whole different palate of story telling. I'm something of a cartoon dealer and turn friends (young and old) onto cartoons by expressing my passion for how the stories are told and how the medium is used. This passion was well suited to my grade 4 classroom.

Amazing conversation
My crib board
My home-cooked Ratatouille or Naples style pizza
Fresh Tomatoes
Being outside walking barefoot
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the state of world and my farm (where it is, how it will come about, all things related). [This is derived from the desire to create my own continent that's all mine, so I'm settling for a farm :) ]
On a typical Friday night I am
Working or out with friends eating good food, playing crib, memorable conversations or watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I came back from the Philippines I was so sick I was put on a diet of meat and potatoes. I had a different type of meat every day for two weeks and although I'm back on my vegetarian and fish diet (primary diet around the world) I still dream of donairs... mystery meat... nom nom nom
You should message me if
you're open and honest, looking for a solid connection that will lead to commitment, intelligent, enjoy laughing about inane things and a geeky/nerdy side for cartoons and comics too! I'm a romantic and love an old fashion date or a new experience. Either way I love adventure.
