I'm a full time musician and I live here with my therapist girlfriend Alison. We met online over 4 years ago and we our now solidly hooked to each other ( in a healthy way...) I've travelled quite a bit and at one time was thinking of living in Shanghai, China. I was attracted to living in a new culture/language, but as it turns out, I love Montreal and I'm setting my roots here. I play woodwinds i.e. saxophones, flute and clarinet. I also sing and play some percussions. My instruments are my kids: I have to work at keeping them on the right path, but as they get older they require less maintenance.
Alison is a great and talented woman, has beautiful kind heart. We are both fun loving, open minded and respectful.
