Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a man of intense interests, fantastic fascinations and obscure
My life is a constant battle between two parts of my brain. One
which strives for order, stability, structure, bigger biceps, and a
low carb diet. And another which yearns for freedom, spontaneity,
intellectual stimulation, new microbreweries and all the awful
sugary candy I can fit in my stomach.
Caught between those opposing forces, I've found an interesting
middle ground. I've learned how to exercise my willpower when faced
with tempation, and when to cut loose and enjoy an amazing moment
when it may not come again.
Though sometimes, the sugary candy still wins.
I guess we're all just works-in-progress.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for Conestoga College in the School of Media and Design,
mostly doing strategic planning and administration. I floundered
for a while trying to find a career I truly love, and I think I
finally found it. Better late than never! I get to use my brain and
dress like a GQ model (note that I didn't say I actually look like
one!) so what's not to like?
Outside of work, I enjoy going to the gym, consuming pop culture
(movies, tv, anime, etc), reading fantasy/sci-fi novels and classic
literature, and pursuing my personal quest of tasting every beer in
the world. I have a feeling that last one will take quite some
time, so no rush. I just started doing rec beach volleyball this
year, and I enjoy kick boxing when time allows.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I'm getting better at cooking, but wouldn't put myself in the
"really good" category just yet. I do make a mean bowl of chilli or
bacon scallop chowder though!

I laugh a lot (sometimes at inappropriate moments). I love to have
a good time, and making people feel good about themselves. You know
that semi-funny anecdote you feel like you tell too often and start
to regret saying it halfway through? Yeah, I'll almost certainly
laugh at that.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The ideas for novels I haven't written yet. So many ideas, so
little motivation to actually write them. One day!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ideally it's drinks and either movies or board games with friends.
On Friday nights alone I'm usually on Netflix or trying to make a
dent in the ever-growing pile of books I need to read and never
have time for.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own pajama pants featuring Animal from the Muppets... What? I'm
not ashamed of it! I've got the Pillsbury Dough Boy too for that
matter! You know you're jealous!
