Born in Edmonton
Ended up in Toronto training as a singer/dancer. I was all over the place for a while performing in musicals on tours and cruise ships.
Traded my dance shoes for textbooks at the University of Toronto/OISE where I've magically emerged with a degree in teaching, cultural anthropology, and a minor in French.
I love to travel. I won't say "no" to a nice hotel, but I prefer backpacking, hostels, and meeting locals to hang out with. No zoos. NO swim-with-the-dolphins stuff.
I've been a vegetarian since I was 14 & I'm still going strong.
I love to swim. It's strangely cathartic for me.
[....I just had to look up "cathartic" to make sure I actually knew what it meant.......close enough!]
I adore dogs, but my home and lifestyle just aren't a good fit for having one around at the moment. If you've got one, I'll go for walks with you.
[....this is getting a little long for a self "summary"! shoot me a message if you'd like to chat]

3. My Bike
4. Nature Clean Products
5. My Contacts/Glasses (SO blind!)
6. My Smartphone...how else am I gonna return your call?!?!
Also, people who take selfies of themselves "sleeping" with their dogs. TOTALLY adorable, but I know you're not sleeping...you're taking a picture of yourself. And unless you're a very effective sleep-walker, you're not fooling me(!)
Maybe checking out a documentary @ Bloor Hot Docs Cinema.
Trying to find someone to go the symphony with!
BUT here we go: I cry. Be forewarned. If it's a touching movie, music video, piece of theatre, commercial, etc. I don't hold back the tears!
