About Me


To travel!


I recently completed my doctorate in music, and am working as a freelance bass player in New York City. I hope to find travel companions who have spatial awareness, etc., as I'm clumsy and prone to getting lost.

I will also give 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!
