I am a journalist working in Windsor, Ontario. I am originally from Toronto and have lived in many different cities in Canada, Europe and Africa including Genoa, Milan, Geneva, Montreal, Ottawa and Nairobi.
Of course, this means I have done a lot of travelling too! Some of my most memorable trips include Istanbul, Stone Town (Tanzania) and Tokyo.
When I travel I usually go for museums, dance shows, architecture and theatre ... and I walk-walk-walk everywhere because I like to get to know my surroundings by foot.
In my spare time I dance Argentine tango, creative modern and ballet and I also hula hoop. I just started pole fitness. I love biking, too, and I try to get to yoga on the weekends.
Aside from dancing, I read voraciously. I often spend Sundays reading the weekend papers over brunch. I am a big fan of post-colonial literature, especially from Africa.
I speak fluent English, French and Italian and intermediate Brazilian Portuguese. I am learning Arabic now.
I do not smoke.
I love food! I especially love Ligurian, Lebanese and Indian food. The tricky thing is, I am vegan (for health reasons), so I have to modify some of the dishes to suit my diet. If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, it would be pasta with fresh tomato sauce and basil.
