I have lived in Montreal for ten years. I'm a musician and writer, working daily on writing songs and also on editing a book of poems and one of stories. I work part time via internet and do a lot of writing at a few nearby coffee shops each day.
Besides that I have beers on stoops and patios with close friends, see a lot of music and read a fair bit. I've traveled to Asia, Europe, Israel and around North America and these days if I'm traveling I prefer to stay in one place and get into a routine than boot around looking at stuff.
I love coffee, beer, wine, fish, steak, chicken, cheese, spinach...lots of foods. I'm a quiet, amenable kind of host...like I know Montreal well and can direct guests to tourist events, sights but can better direct folks to great areas to soak in surroundings, have coffee, watch people, as that's what I like to do.
