Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well hello, I kind of dislike writing these things but then so does
I just moved to Vancouver, am originally from Ottawa. So I'm
looking to network and meet people and make new friends in general
as well as find someone romantically.
Overall I guess I'm a somewhat quiet, somewhat nerdy dude who
strives to live an interesting life and have fun along the way. I
grew surrounded by 100 acres of forest so I've always enjoyed
hiking in nature.
Anyways, I'm also kind of inclined to ramble in depth once started
because I kind of dislike small talk.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm working for an insurance company as software
developer. Not the most interesting sounding job but it's not bad
and mostly write code all day which I enjoy.
I enjoy spending my spare time exploring exploring the city, the
surrounding area; finding out of the way shops and wondering
sometimes how they manage to stay in bussiness, finding scenic
spots to try and spot wildlife, wondering what the night life is
like. I feel like my life is stable and I'm just enjoying letting
my curiosity drive me. I have a lot of deep interests and tend to
look for depth in things.
I also like traveling and it's something I plan to do as much as I
can for the rest of my life and plan to go traveling this coming
summer as my last trip was two years ago. It was a really fun
Eurotrip though where I visited several different countries.
I traversed the narrow catacombs of Paris full of moldering bones,
climbed up to a fairy-tale castle in the alps, saw Hitlers
submarine pens, went to crazy Finnish wedding where I danced all
night, and most of all met some wonderful people on my trip and
made some friends for life.
I’m really good at

I love art in all it's forms and it's important to me as I'm a bit
of a creative type despite my technical degree and background. I'm
a fan of the weird or more surreal and this comic kind of sums up
my thoughts on art and my general perspective on life

would probably have to be a mix of a few
classics like Heart of Darkness, Steppenwolf, Moby-Dick, and then a
few nerdy genre ones like Dune, The Hobbit, and anything by
As for my taste in film it is somewhat
eclectic. I enjoy all kinds of movies, from Hollywood blockbusters
to more artsy films. Assorted favorites would have to be: Stalker,
Apocalypse Now, Fight Club, Lord of the Rings, The Seven Samurai,
Nosferatu, A Clockwork Orange, and The Good The Bad and The Ugly,
which has a unforgettable ending and is tied with the Seventh Seal
for my favourite film.
As for music one thing I particularly love
is Canadian post-rock music. It's a type of music I really just
love. Here's a video of one of my favourite songs:
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-A book to read.
-Somewhere nice to hike.
-Friends to act silly with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How and why things work. Patterns. Perspectives. The profound, the
weird, and the strange. But mostly the strange.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
When I hang out with my friends it's generally at a house party or
to explore something new in the city. I also play a pen-and-paper
RPG once a week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have a fascination with psychology, personality theory in
particular, and have read a lot on Meyers-Brigg's theories on
personality and am an INTJ personality type.
