Name: Rob

Age: 59

What neighbourhood are you from? East York

What do you 'do'? Compose music and sometimes play it.

How long have you been in Toronto? Forever. I live here.

What's your story?

I used to practice medicine (mostly, psychotherapy) but I always had a passion for music which I did as a hobby. And now, I compose and play music and I'm also writing a book. In-between, I spent time in a Buddhist temple (mostly, Korean).

Favorite thing(s) about Toronto:

Lots of free concerts, especially, the downtown and Beaches Jazz Festival.

Least favorite thing(s) about Toronto:

February.

One thing that your friends/family don't know about you:

I don't think there's anything. I'm pretty much an open book.
