Regrettably, I'm not very photogenic (the upside being--I'm much cuter in person. : )
Raised in Hfx, school in Fred & Mtl, settled in TO.
Left lawyering to do my BEd--never looking back. Just finished my second month-long student-teaching placement--loved it--miss my students! Also coaching high school basketball, soccer and debating. Psyched to start teaching in Sept. 2014.
I'm absolutely into music, movies and art--anything with creative aesthetic. Member TIFF & AGO (bring on the Bacon!) Loved Osheaga 2012 and will go again.
Last great shows: Patti Smith, Jack White, Of Monsters & Men, Franz Ferdinand, Mowgli's & Said the Whale.
I'm head over heels with my friend's puppy--I haven't had a dog since childhood but am reconsidering. If you have one I'm half-way to smitten.
I exercise almost every day--mostly to justify my appetite.
I've been coaching minor baseball for a couple years--it's a great experience and was a catalyst for my career change.
I'm a lethal Scrabble nerd. American politics nerd too.
I too outrage at injustice and inhumanity.
I'm primarily silly and would spend most my time trying to make you laugh. (I've been told I give great e-mail.)
