My Valentine and I met while I was a teacher at the Cabbagetown Community Arts Center, in Toronto. I'd been working in this non-profit children's center for several years as a guitar instructor. A friend of mine suggested that I host a music stage in the Dave Broadfoot Theater at the back of the center. John was one of the talented musical guests whom appeared at Cafe at the Center, our songwriter's stage. This popular Sunday night cafe was run with my friend Ken Bilton, a musical director of the local festival, and visual artist who volunteered. Donations we raised went to the children's arts programmes. I met so many amazing songwriters and lovely people during that period. Many I have stayed in touch with. But, of course most remarkably, I found the love of my life.

Twenty-Twenty is going to be a stellar year! John and I will be celebrating twenty years together on our anniversary this October. Currently in the midst of renovations, we'll move into our first real home in March. We are also looking forward to making music together in our very own studio this spring.
