About Me

==================================

Things to do in & around Montreal: http://www.adventurepotato.com/

==================================

I'm a cisgendered queer narcoleptic social introvert French Canadian from Vietnamese descent who lived in Australia with a Californian accent.

I used to work as an Art Director in California, creating and building sets, I now work at the National Film Board of Canada, our national cultural institution for cinema.

I'm currently finishing a feature documentary (partly animated) on adoption practices in Australia - so by now, I'm quite fluent in that issue and will convince you that adoption should be banned in its current form and rethought.

On a day to day basis, I aim to learn everything about sustainable housing.

Queer friendly, size friendly, colour friendly, deaf friendly, religious friendly, mental health friendly, nudism friendly , no discrimination

What I Can Share with Hosts

========
QUOTES:
========

Health brings a freedom very few realize, until they no longer have it.

To love is to read a song from someone's heart and to sing it back to them.

We're not tourists, we're travellers. A tourist is someone who thinks about going home the moment they arrive. Whereas a traveller might not come back at all.

Crisis, Irony, Decline, Renewal, Ambiguity

Your garbage is my gold.
