Aley Ordolis-

I remember seeing the view of the skyline over the Don Valley. Something about that view made me realize what was possible in my career.

Although I was living in Toronto, I still traveled back and forth between here and Montreal for gigs and to visit my family. At first, Toronto just seemed like a city I was living in.

But I remember one drive back to Toronto, a few years ago. I saw the Bloor Viaduct towering over the Don Valley. When I saw the bridge that time, I felt like I was returning home.
