About Me


To save the world... so far so good.


I am a Social Worker in Canada. My hero is Punky Brewster.

I am a writer for a grassroots media source called the Halifax Media Coop, I play roller derby, I am a Hula Hoop dancer, I like doing handstands, and I like exploring this lovely place called Halifax, despite having lived here a majority of my life.

I'm a vegan. I'm always smiling. I like to dance in the streets. I like to do things over and over when i'm terrible at them. I like the sun and the rain equally...I love a good rain dance. I am spontanious. I don't like decisions. I believe in energy. I believe in happiness. I believe in the power of the universe. I don't believe in coincidence.

Music is my life. I like it all. My favorite genres depend on my mood.

My guilty pleasure is country.
My rarer guilty pleasure is old school rap.
My reading or studying music is classical or opera.

I love all movies. Although I find it hard to sit through them in theaters.. I need to be doing more than one thing at once.
