About Me


Meet socially engaged people, adventures that lead me to unexpected territory


An exuberant conversationalist. I take talking very seriously, but am easy to laugh. I'm incredibly loyal and easy going. Um...not sure what else, they'd probably say I am a mix between severity and absolute silliness.


We are here to continuously learn and un-learn the meaning of love and understanding...annnd we are meant to enjoy life!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Danced on top of my friend's roof as a hurricane was descending on Manhattan. The rain felt like ice -- we were up town enough that it wasn't in the eye of the storm, so the joy was just seeing all the yellow windows blink, and the sound of crushing drops against the metal shingles.

Last April a play of mine was performed at a small theater in the north end of Halifax. After the show we had a jazz trio play. A bunch of my close friends whom I admire deeply were there. The rush of just seeing something I had done go up, and then, getting to dance with my friends to incredible jazz tunes, gave me a feeling of irreplaceable elation.

A very good friend of mine invited me to her place last week. She was living in a university residence, but all of the students were cleared. We made dinner together, drank wine, and pretended we were an old English couple, and proceeded to eat most of our meal in character, except for when it got ridiculous, and laughter had to be our main form of communication.

There are too many things I find amazing to list. I feel like this section could change daily.
