What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently working in marketing for a not-for-profit.
In my spare time I make art (writing & amateur Happy
Impressionist paintings) and am pretty active. Gym, yoga,
bicycling, swimming & more. Always up for a hike in one of
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing! Also, being disarmingly honest. I've been told I wear my
heart on my sleeve. I don't tend to think this. It could be part of
the honesty parcel.
Conversation. There are few ways to get to my heart faster. Or, put
concisely, I'm good at conversation with depth.
Creating. My writing is a big part of who I am.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Interesting question. I could say my eyes, but that's an easy
answer. Too common as well. Umm... let's say my sense of humour.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My gym bag (neon running shoes, water bottle, shorts and shirt)
- My gym bag looks more like I'm on my way to Special Ops tactical
training than Le Gym at Concordia.
2) A book of the moment. These days I'm reading 'Getting to Yes' a
book on negotiations
3) My friends. An eclectic bunch, spread over three cities by my
count now. Love 'em all, think about them often.
4) Peanut Butter. The lazy man's snack
5) My Driver's License. I don't own a car, but I certainly like
playing chauffeur when the opportunity arises.
6) My French book. J'etudie en Francais, maintenant! I'm learning,
becoming bilingual in slow steps
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
That would be boring if I wrote about that.
Go here to read my blog; it's interesting:
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either exploring the city, at home writing, or spending time with
friends. While the weather is still warm I want to visit Park
Maissoneuve again at night. I really enjoy Montreal's parks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm going to play it modest here. Like any sensible modern
gentleman, I don't reveal my secrets to the Internet. They're
reserved for people close to my heart.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're looking for an activity partner (or more)
Someone to go to museums with, or explore Montreal with on a
weekend night. Maybe it ends with us playing chess (or poker, or
Monopoly) Maybe it ends with us falling asleep on a couch. Maybe it
ends with something more intimate than that.
By writing activity partner I should clarify. This can be fluid -
we can go from friendship, to dating, or just stay friends. I'm not
placing any expectations on this.
If you're going to message me, tell me something about you - what
projects are close to your heart, what you're reading right now.
You can also make me laugh. If you're funny, then it's double plus
