About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Take a sad song and make it better

ABOUT ME

¡Hola!, I am originally from Peru and immigrated to Canada in 2004 (I am Canadian now too!). I don't know how it happened but I ended up working in Finance. Hablo español. I am an Elvis man. I love The Beatles. Sometimes I take music too seriously. I have a record player. I still buy LPs (they sound much better than CDs). I might torture you with my impeccable musical taste while you stay with me. I am slightly hypochondriac. I am a coffee snob. I am not very sociable. I love vintage stuff. I am not a big fan of Salsa music, I am definitively not a Salsa dancer and I really do not know where to go for latin music in Toronto. I want to learn to speak French and Italian. I don't like Lima. I really like Toronto. I don't like the suburbs. I am a movie/music/book geek. I am very sarcastic. Conversacion en la Catedral and Cien años de Soledad are probably my favorites books. I believe in Organic Food. I try to eat healthy as much as I can but I am not obsessive about it. I like beer and wine. Sometimes I look extremely bored but I am actually having a good time. I love having a good conversation. I am agnostic. I am mainly a pessimistic person. I like B movies (they are so bad that they are good). If you hang out with me often, you will get random facts about things you could not care less to know.

PHILOSOPHY

Personal philosophy? that sounds so cheesy!

But let's quote Woody Allen: "If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans"
