Hey, I’m Robert!

In 2012 I made my first trip to Europe, a four month odyssey though the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Spain. On this excursion in 2014 I hope to find a position as a teacher of English, hopefully in Germany.

Otherwise, about me: I am an old soul. I love all things artistic, literary, musical before the mid-twentieth century. I am currently writing a book about my life and experience with a life-threatening illness in addition to a verse novel about an Austrian winemaker and his 'escapades'. I play guitar as well and can sing (while living in Vancouver, I recorded twelve of my songs with a recording student at PAVI).

I enjoy good conversation. I'm well read. My favourite books include Joseph Roth's The Radetsky March, Proust's In Search of Lost Time, Steinbecks' The Grapes of Wrath, Thomas Mann's Doktor Faustus, the poetry of Rilke, Trakl, Lorca, Akhamtova, the stories of Ivan Bunin, the philosophies of Plato and Schopenhauer. In addition, I love classical music, Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, Schumann, Schubert, and opera.

I am a non-smoker. I am tidy. I drink wine and like the French, believe that getting drunk is only an accidental aspect of appreciating a good vintage. (I am a huge fan of Spanish wine - Rioja, Rueda - German Riesling from the Mosel and Southern Germany and Valpolicella - also Aglianico from Campania in Southern Italy)
