Bio: I am a full time high school band teacher by profession, and a part time officer in the Canadian Armed Forces Reserves, with the Cadet Instructor Cadre. I have traveled across Canada and much of the United States, and have alternated living in Ontario, Manitoba, and B.C. over the past (just over) 50 years of my life. While I have many diverse interests, I am a Fantasy & Sci-Fi nerd at heart.
Hobbies: Music, (lots of) reading, board games, time with family, and rewatching "Star Trek" and "Doctor Who" ad nauseum.
