About Me


To travel!


I'm an academic and musician, on a mission to explore the world. I hope to find travel companions who have spatial awareness, etc., as I'm clumsy and prone to getting lost. Currently in Perth, I've previously lived in Montreal, NYC, Austin and Berlin, and travelled in Asia.

I'll offer a prize to any non-Canadian who, without Googling it, tells me something about Prince Edward Island (which is where I'm from). Here's a hint: Anne of Green Gables!


Relativism, except in relation to relativism itself. :)
