    Hello Andrea! Good. For. YOU.

    You can imagine how shocked I was, sitting in Tino’s waiting for takeout, when I picked up the East Yorker and read about a woman on basically the same journey as me!

    Though I am here to be an actor and novelist, I am always looking to build bridges to new opportunities.

    As a person new to Toronto and now working from home writing, I do hope you and I can meet and chat about how we can help each other’s businesses grow.
