Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just got back from Mexico, so I'm slowly getting back to real life
activities like meeting people. ;)
I'm an active, Canadian guy whose move to California has brought
out the windsurfer and kiteboarder in me. I'm adventurous in my
sportings and creative in my work. You can find me on evenings and
weekends playing hockey, using my GoPro or brainstorming new
I'm as much an entrepreneur as I am a romantic. I live a healthy
lifestyle and am super mindful of what I put in my body. I'm a huge
fan of my family's cottage in Canada (that I helped build), and
always look forward to visiting each summer (at least once). I'm
passionate about my hobbies and my start-up work, and looking for
someone who is equally as passionate about what they do, be it for
work or for pleasure.
I'm looking for someone who can challenge me intellectually, but
can also make me burst out laughing. I'm a goofy guy, and also a
total gentleman (in true Canadian fashion). Looking for a lady who
shares a love of travel and a passion to make the world a better
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Experiencing as much of it as I can! Ironically I thought I was
moving to California with the goal of furthering my career. It
turns out there are even more interesting things to do (and talk
about) than that. I loooovvveee being active. Working out, playing
hockey (yep, I'm Canadian) windsurfing, mountain biking and about a
million other sports all make life worth living!
I get to experience this all because I have a great career where I
get to wake up and love what I do every day. I lead a team of
engineers in SOMA trying to help people save gas, drive better, and
reduce automobile emissions.
I’m really good at

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Pushing my limits physically
2. Pushing my limits intellectually (see a pattern here?)
3. Doing GoPro worthy adventures
4. Ambition & aspirations (ask me, and I'll tell you all about

6. Yogurt - cause its awesome
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Bettering myself and the world around me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It varies week to week, it could be out with friends, at the gym,
at home working on a project, or relaxing from a long week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Given my inclination towards extreme sports, I've (perhaps
surprisingly) only ever broken one bone. The way it happened is way
less glamorous than you might expect...

I am keen to find someone who enjoys deep conversation. I'm
attracted to a woman who knows herself and actively thinks about
her place in the world. My ideal relationship is one where each
partner uplifts and encourages the other, in a way that is both
challenging and supportive.
I'm looking for someone who complements my height - I'd prefer
someone who is at least 5'6" (without heels) ;)
