Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I live a life that I absolutely love. A mix of my country boy roots
and Bay Street "suit". I work in a bank (but am not a banker) and
have an MBA, but can fix a tractor, build things and do landcaping
at the drop of a hat. I guess all that time at the gym pays off
I also love art, photography, music, theatre, dancing, urban
planning, traveling, exploring cultures and many other
right-brained things. Plus I have some geekyness in me too. I enjoy
sci-fi and Fan Expo and a few other nerdy things.
I'm a guy who is creative and fun, and works hard to make dreams
happen. I'd rather have integrity than be right all the time. So if
you are looking for a perfect guy, I'm not it.
But I get along with all animals and kids. Dogs and cats often come
greet me on the street, raccoons and skunks take a moment from
raiding garbage cans to acknowledge my presence, and little kids
always seem to smile at me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By day, I work at a bank, designing web and mobile banking (eg
iPhone, iPad) applications. I also just finished writing my second
book and it is selling worldwide. That's my "second job", but now
more of a hobby. I own a sailboat, and plan to buy a house in
Toronto (when the prices get a little less crazy). I have tons of
friends, family, hobbies and interests that keep me happy and busy
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Wine collecting and tasting
Learning new things and "putting the pieces of the puzzle
Cooking (one of my special dishes is shrimp, crab and lobster in a
spicy garlic rose sauce on linguine)
Helping out friends and family, including life coaching, moving
heavy stuff, fixing things, and running financial or strategic

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Family and friends - they are such a great, diverse bunch. Some
are a bit crazier than others, and come from so many different
parts of my life
2. Sailing - it is like breathing to me. I was 5 months old when I
was first on a sailboat. I race a lot, and I love to take friends
out for a sail.
3. Good food and wine - I love to cook (especially for others), and
am really into wine tasting
4. Exercise - I enjoy the gym, hiking, long wanders in the city,
and doing manual labour (fence building, landscaping, home
5. Travel - I've seen many great places and would love to take
someone special to many other countries
6. Learning new things - I'm an information sponge, and love to
learn about pretty much anything.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Huh? Guys think? Who would have figured that! ;)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends, exploring the city, attending a festival,
enjoying the arts (music, art, theatre), or just hanging out in a
pub chatting about life, the universe and everything. Other times,
I am just relaxing at home.
