  • Description


    I am building sustainable life on Galiano Island and would like to share a bit of my journey with you. I live on 5 forested acres near a provincial marine park and beaches in the southern gulf islands of BC Canada. I'm involved in songwriting and performing arts and enjoy fitness, great conversation, hiking and nature, jamming, laughing goofy things, being a lifelong learner, collaborative living and good food. I also appreciate solitude and enjoy my own company to balance social time. If you're interested and have any questions, feel free to get in touch.
