About Me


To boldly surf where no couch has gone before.


Specialization is for insects - I think every person should know or aspire to know how to knit a scarf, change a tire, write a poem, learn another language, play a sport, build a cabinet, play an instrument and cook a big meal for 40.


I'm interested in dream interpretation, dancing 'the wheelbarrow', and interpreting dreams about dancing the wheelbarrow.

Music - Neoangin, Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, Kino, Harry Belafonte, The Knife

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to play the accordion (for beginners) how to ice skate and play ice hockey - especially if playing goalie is your thing - help you analyze your dreams according to Jungian psychological theory, demonstrate the basics of knitting and sewing, teach you how to use Quark express and show you how to cook delicious vegetarian meals! Oh, also I can spell things backwards pretty well in both of Canada's official languages ;^)
