Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(This profile really needs to get updated... oh well some day I'll
sit down and rewrite it. I am in Victoria now, turns out I couldn't
stay away... anyway back to the old profile!)
Let's get something to eat!
I'm back in Montreal after about six years on the West Coast and I
have missed Montreal's vast collection of restaurants. Always happy
to spend a night out exploring the city. Only thing that can make
it better is people to go with, food always tastes better when it's
shared with friends. Plus you get some weird looks when you order a
large meal alone in a restaurant, especially brunch.
I was on this site for a while in BC and met a few awesome people.
If nothing else it's a great way to meet new friends, though
ideally I'm looking for something romantic.
As my photos and user-name hint, I really enjoy rock climbing. At
the moment I spend a lot of time indoors at the gym Allez Up,
though I'm hoping to get some outdoor climbing in the summer. If
you're into the sport, awesome! Always good to have someone to
climb with. If you're not, not a problem, this city has loads of
stuff we can do together.
What am I looking for? Someone who enjoys spending the occasional
weekend outside exploring the island, but is just as happy curled
up with a bowl of popcorn, watching the latest tv series that's
caught our attention.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently left a PhD in theoretical physics and decided to move
back to Montreal. I am currently volunteering in a science outreach
program, while hoping to turn it into a real career.
I'm spending the bulk of my time coding a video game and doing some
contract work. It's a challenge that I find both exciting and it
keeps me busy.
I also spend some of my free time filming videos for a YouTube
channel I run that tries to get people interested in physics. (It's
more interesting than it sounds I promise)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Teaching, I'm very good at explaining complicated wibbly wobbly
physics ideas to students.
-I'm pretty clever, math wise anyway. I love how a complicated
problem can unfold into a simple elegant solution when you work on
it long enough.
-I'm handy around the house, my brother and I renovated our kitchen
from the ground up a few months back. (long story short, there was
a grease fire; only casualties: arm hair and some cabinets).

demos for a university in town.

When I was five I thought I was superman. I was very disappointed
when I realized that Smallville was in Kansas not Quebec.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're passionate about what you do and think I'd like hearing
about it. If you enjoy a weird sense of humor. Heck even if you're
just interested in someone to climb with I can always use a new
toproping or lead partner.
