I live in Toronto, Canada. I am professionally employed at a local university.
ANIMALS: I have a dog (Julio - dappled, long-haired, miniature dachshund, 8 years-old ) and a cat (Mattie - all black, short-haired, 6 years-old).
ART: I am not an artist but I worship art in all its forms: theatre, opera, photography, dance, painting, architecture etc.
BOOKS: Anything. Currently I am reading 'The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks' by Rebecca Skloot. and 'In One Person' by John Irving. I'm reading the new Irving for my book club and, honestly, I'm hesitant. I read and loved him in late high school/early university but will it still work for for me? That is the question
MOVIES (7 THAT ROCK): Aliens / Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle / Hunger (2008) / My Beautiful Launderette / Un prophète / Secretary / There Will Be Blood / Days of Heaven. The list goes on and on.
MUSIC: (7 INDISPENSABLE): Kate Bush - The Hounds of Love / David Bowie – “Heroes” / Marianne Faithful - Broken English / Massive Attack - Mezzanine / Prince - Sign 'O the Times / Radiohead - The Bends / Kanye West - Late Registration. Really there are about another 172 indispensable artists.
VARIOUS: Cooking and baking (I’m pretty damn good), traveling, pop culture trivia, ice cream (its own food group), muscle cars, wine etc.
