I love to cook and bake. There's nothing quite like the thrill of creating something yourself and eating it. Trying new things out, failing spectacularly sometimes, but also succeeding!
I'm pretty passionate about music, and I'd like to think I have a pretty strong artistic vision. I do eventually want to make it my career. It's not going to be easy, but the good things in life never are.
I'm a jazz musician, which means I listen to and play a bunch of music that 90% of people today have never heard of. A lot of my favourite music was made between 1940 and 1969. That kind of makes me sound like a giant hipster, but there it is. I also like modern stuff, and I do like to splash other genres of music on occasion. I like classic rock, a bit of folk, and very selective pop records. I'm a sucker for Stevie Wonder/Michael Jackson.
I'm not afraid to be myself. I love a whole bunch of pretty nerdy stuff. I'm not afraid to admit I like myself a good episode of Star Trek, or video games (my favourites are story intensive RPG's).
I love surprises.
I've recently started a self-improvement kick, which so far has consisted of doing more exercise (in the form of running three times a week) and volunteering at the local food bank. It's been really rewarding and I'm always looking for ways to make myself a better person.
Words people have used to describe me: Funny, well-spoken, stubborn, artistic, talented, ambitious, silly, articulate, witty, intelligent, analytical, observant, strong-willed, honest.
My ideal girl would be open, outgoing, and honest. Enjoyment of video games and spicy food is a bonus, but not absolutely necessary. I also enjoy a good philosophical debate or intellectual discussion. If you can challenge my preconceptions, you'll win my respect. I love to be challenged.
