Hadrien Burch: male, late 20s/mid 30s.
Dr. Hadrien Burch is a successful young sleep clinician whose vocation is to observe and assess the resting habits of citizens of the Okanagan region. Meticulous and fastidious in his work, he’s on shakier ground when negotiating romantic possibilities, where conventional logic doesn’t always apply. An enthusiastic participant nevertheless. A recent magazine article named Hadrien as Kelowna’s third-most-eligible bachelor.
