About Me
I am an assistant professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto. My home is an early 1900s row house in the Beaches neighbourhood, a short walk to the shops and restaurants of Queen Street East, the eponymous Beaches, and the 501 streetcar line to downtown. It's a wonderful, family-friendly, dog-friendly neighbourhood, just far enough from downtown to feel like a beach oasis but close enough to have all the amenities of Canada's largest city. My partner and I are often looking for home exchanges all over the world as well as in British Columbia.
