About Me I am a work in progress, a late bloomer and ambitious in a peculiar manner. I have big dreams for myself, my friends, the people I meet, the causes I care about and the church I am separated from. I have one foot in history while being firmly rooted in today's culture. I am fascinated by people and fed by God. I am a student (Masters of Divinity), writer, runner, vegetarian, humanitarian and Christian.

If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by If I were Prime Minister the first thing I would do to make the world a better place is re-instate the environment programs this current government dropped when elected, exceed Kyoto protocols and give Native Canadian bands the right to self-government.
