Located in London, we spent equal time between London and Toronto and am happy to serve the areas within those locations. Summers are active, spending my free time with my partner and our adopted dogs, Silas a Boston Terrier and Baci, a lab mix – everyone loves long walks on the beach. Come the winter, we all prefer hibernating and reading a good book or watching a documentary on the couch.
