I am really good at singing and playing guitar.  

What do you like to do when you aren’t at school?

I like yoga, cycling, singing karaoke and dancing with my daughter (age 7).  

What is something not everyone knows about you?

If you knew me really well, you would know that I am funny and kind hearted.  One of my favourite childhood memories is the year I pretended I was a dog (age 4).  It got pretty serious when my girlfriend started taking me for walks outside around our street on a leash!  It ended when she fed me an actual milk bone, YUCK! My parent’s solution... they got me a real dog.
