I was born in Vancouver and have lived in East Vancouver for my entire adult life. I'm a creative individual and enjoy working on large collaborative art projects that sometimes end up at a certain desert festival. I love to dance and I often go to amusing parties in town- so if you are looking to get your dance on, do let me know. One of my favourite things to do is ride my bike along many of Vancouver's beautiful seawalls. If you promise to lock her up, I will lend you my bike and you can see for yourself. We are at the top of a wicked hill!!! My garden and home are very relaxing and I'm pretty easy going as a result. I look forward to meeting you.
