A graduate of McGill University in Humanistic Studies and Social Studies of Medicine, I aspire to teach myself for the rest of my life, continuing the education that began with my BA. I love to cook and eat, to drink good wine with my friends and family, and like so many others, to travel. I currently work in Development & Alumni Affairs at Marianopolis College, where I'm learning every day and hoping to give back as much as I receive. Someday I hope to escape to a little cottage on the sea like so many other people. I'm a vegetarian, an atheist, a compassionate capitalist, and many other things which change as I grow!
Areas of Expertise

An idea worth spreading
That hopefully, someday, we will all live to wonder how we could ever have been so ignorant in the past, rather than idealizing it and stagnating in nostalgia; that to embrace our future is to pay homage to our past - not denigrate it. That forging forwards is never bad so long as it is not reckless or thoughtless.
I'm passionate about
Human & animal rights, vegetarianism, cooking, wine, travel, writing, reading, films, music, astrobiology and astrophysics - some are clichés, but only because they are so universal and so wonderful.
Talk to me about
Urban planning; environmental innovations; sci-fi; food, cooking and eating; and, most importantly, the clever, dramatic and sometimes even brilliant ideas of my fellow Good Humans.
People don't know I'm good at
analyzing myself and seeing all my flaws in blinding clarity!
