Thor is a busker, playing the keyboard on Granville Street. He lives in an apartment in Surrey, and commutes into Vancouver to play, and sell cassettes and CD’s of his original music. His ambition is to be in the Jazz Festival. He has had some media attention, and was written up in MacLean’s magazine. One woman likes his music and gives him up to $600.00 a year.
Thor loves working on the street and says he has no problems with other street people. He does not do drugs now, but can’t leave the country because of a previous drug charge.
