I'm the kind of person who likes to watch movie credits to the end while everyone else hastily exits the theatre.
I'm originally from Guelph, and have lived away for a number of years in places including Germany and Newfoundland. I've spent the greater part of my life studying and working as a classical musician, and have degrees in music. It is a rewarding and challenging career, one which has given me much joy and fulfillment. Now I teach piano to students in Guelph. This was always my fallback plan but it's turned out to be a very good fit for me.
I enjoy reading, drawing, composing and being active. I like swimming and bike-riding and do Yoga with a group of friends outside. I'm a sucker for Netflix and am always looking for new shows. Just rediscovered that I love anime. I've been doing some creative writing and presenting it at the Writer's Open Mic at the Redbrick. Love to jam with friends and family.
As an introvert I'm looking for someone who is content with spending nights in together and laying low. I used to go out a lot in my 20s but now I enjoy a quieter life. That said getting out to a good comedy show or a live jam are things I regularly do.
Someone who is a good listener, on the sensitive side, creative, and knows how to laugh about nothing is the kind of person I'm looking for. I also really love nerds (well takes one to know one). I also value the importance of eating healthy. If any of this resonates with you then shoot me one. Bonus points if you have an accent, I have a thing for foreigners.
I prefer to meet someone in Guelph, or KW at the farthest. New friendships too :0)
