Born in New Brunswick, I've bounced all over from Halifax to Toronto to Beijing and various points in between. In addition to sports (obviously), my primary interests are movies (The Long Goodbye #1), books (Catch-22, Don Quixote, The World According to Garp), music (mostly rock, but a little bit of everything), and food & travel (these two are inextricably linked in my mind). Top 3 trips: Vietnam, Copenhagen, Madrid.
