About Me


learn to cook many international specialties and taste some delicious beers/wines!


I am a very social person who loves to meet up for some beers (Montreal has excellent choices), food, trivia nights or even board game nights. I was very involved on my campus through many groups and activities! Most notably, I was a member of the intercollegiate McGill Lumberjack Team!!! That's right, I chop, saw and throw logs of wood competitively! I really enjoy travelling and learning about new cultures. Since food is what I studied and now my career I am very passionate about it! The most memorizing thing about a trip is what flavours you discovered and who you were with! I am totally the kind of person who makes it obligatory to go to a local grocery store in every new place I visit! I was in the royal canadian air cadets for 8 years as part of the military marching band. Clarinet and barytone were my main instruments. Finally, I am a smiling face that loves to laugh and share her experiences with fun people!
Je suis une personne sociale qui aime rencontrer de nouvelles personnes autour d'une bonne broue (Montréal a d'excellent choix de microbrasseries), un nouveau resto, une soirée de trivia ou même des jeux de société! Je vis à Montréal depuis 3 ans et j'adores faire la "show off" de cette merveilleuse ville! Petit fait intéréssant sur moi: j'étais bûcheronne compétitive pendant mon temps à l'université McGill!

Music, Movies, and Books

I love movies in general. My favorites are: Monty Python and the quest for the holy grail, Spaghetti Westerns,Star Wars, the Godfather,Chocolat,Schindler's list,Ratatouille,Snatch,Casablanca,Pride and Prejudice,Tarantino films, Tim Burton films, Fight Club, etc.

As for music well i'm a musician (clarinet, classical guitar,baryton,trumpet) so i have what i like to call music ADD. I love pretty much any genre!

Books are another think i enjoy, when i can find the time!!! I'm a huge fan of douglas adams (hitchiker's guide to the galaxy), I love Anthony Bourdain's books, Albert Camus,Jane Austen (quite the contrast but still!), JRR Tolkien, Philippa Gregory, and many more. Like with movies, i love a good twist and some humour!
J'adores le cinéma et j'ai beaucoup trop de films préférés! Les tops sont: Monty python, la guerre des étoiles, les spaghetti westerns, orgeuil et préjugés (eh oui, toute fille a comme petit pêché les livres/films de Jane Austen!), les films de Tarantino et Tim Burton, Fight Club, La grande seduction (excellent film quebecois) ainsi que plusieurs autres!

Pour ce qui est de la musique, vu que je suis musicienne j'adores tout et n'importes quoi! C'est difficile de trouver quelque chose que je vais détester!

J'adores lire au soleil avec un bon verre de sangria en main! Mes auteurs préférés sont: Albert Camus, Jane Austen, Douglas Adams, JRR Tolkien, Philippa Gregory et plusieurs autres!
