Born in California, lived most of my life in Canada. Spent 10 years in Vancouver, mostly working for Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children as its education consultant. (I'll admit I was not uncontroversial in that position.) Outdoorsy. Birdy. Enjoy cooking and reading. Camp a lot, when I can. Pretty laid-back mostly except where social justice and environmental issues are concerned. If this is a problem, I probably don't want to give you my custom.
