* I don't have a moustache, and I don't wear hats inside, but I do sit at a desk

* I'm married with 2 great kids

* I am an Anglican and I currently attend St. John's Anglican in Ancaster Ontario

* I often listen to classical music, especially that of Baldassare Galuppi. The Wikipedia entry is not as gushing as it ought to be, but it's a start.
* Check out the complete piano sonatas of Galuppi being released by The Divine Art label.

* I play Scottish smallpipes in A & D made by John Walsh and Borderpipes in A (antique style) by John Burke with a reed by Robin Aggus.
* I also play Burke whistles (D and low D) as well as a Tony Dixon Whistle in C, and bodhran.
* Most Friday nights me mates 'n me, well we play at the Shepherd's Pub in Elora Ontario, starting round 9 PM until late.
* I study traditional Irish and Scottish repertoire at Riverside Celtic College where I am also the chair of the board.
