I have German Estonian roots, was born and raised in Canada and I am married to a Japanese woman. I have traveled the world, worked and lived in Germany and Japan before finally settling back down in Vancouver again with my wife and son. I love meeting people of different cultures and I am interested in a variety of music as much as the many places I have been to, from world beats to classical to electronic. My son is also very musical and plays the piano and viola. When we travel, we love to sample the local food, trying out restaurants or exploring the markets that showcase the tastes of the region. We also love going to concerts or live shows and strive to learn something different or new in the place or places we visit.
