ABOUT ME

Oh wow I just noticed how many of these boxes I need to fill out...ok...

I grew up in a smallish(depends who you talk too? 1500ppl??) rural community in eastern ontario.

I can't spell very well (so if you see any omissions let me know!!)

When i'm surrounded by laid back people i'm most comfortable.

I enjoying tinkering on old rusty cars...I'm not always able to fix them but I try hard!

PHILOSOPHY
