My self-summary
I'm a tattooed journalism student, musician, writer, movie buff, gamer and wannabe amateur eater.

I grew up in the wilds of Northwestern Ontario, so I'm sometimes a fish out of water in the city. I still often stop to gape at the CN Tower. I'm much more at home in the middle of the woods, surrounded by trees and tiny woodland creatures. My superhero name would probably be "The Woodsman" but my power set would rank only slightly above Snow White.

My hometown features in a Tim Horton's Christmas ad you may have seen. They called it the coldest place in Canada, but on the day they shot the commercial it was an uncharacteristically warm day.

For a while my profile told me I was a creationist. I'm not. I'm just the poster child for why you shouldn't answer multiple choice questions on 3 hours of sleep. Carpe noctem.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a student again. Learning how to change the world one hard-hitting interview at a time. Or, more likely, how to write about cat cafés. It requires coffee. So much coffee. All the coffee.

Outside of school I take pictures of things that aren't people, play music on my guitar that was written before I was born, and write stories about strange things that go bump in the night.

In my free time I try to track down live music, new bars, the best food and the secret spots around Toronto as best I can.

I think by this point I've watched every video Gordon Ramsay has on youtube...
I’m really good at
Going the long way 'round.

Making breakfast for every meal. Breakfast is my domain. I am the King of Breakfast...

...making toast is always a gamble.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Stephen King, Neil Gaiman and H.P. Lovecraft are some of my favourite authors. Andrew Pyper is my favourite Canadian author. The Dark Tower is both my favourite book AND favourite book series. Birds, meet stone.

Movies: I love horror movies. Not a fan of slasher/gore, I prefer atmospheric horror, the scary movies that live in your head for days after you watch them. Though I'm also fond of action and comedies. Some of my favourite films are The Fountain, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Thing ('82), and anything by Guillermo del Toro.

Music: I'm a fan of rock and blues mainly. After losing Glenn Frey, I've been listening to a lot of the Eagles lately, I was pretty much raised on that band. I'm bad at finding new music, but I try. Zeppelin, Billy Joel, Goo Goo Dolls and Alter Bridge are some more of my favourites.

TV: The Simpsons, Castle, The Flash, Doctor Who, Gravity Falls, Scrubs, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Expedition Unknown

Food: Japanese, East-Indian, Pub and breakfast.
The six things I could never do without
Music
Stories -- doesn't matter what form they come in, experiencing a good story is among the greatest pleasures in the world.
Museums -- if I could live in the ROM, the Louvre or the British Museum, I would.
Coffee -- Nectar of the gods. I'm on an endless search to find the best caramel latté in the city.
Punctuation.

Finally, this cat. Reeally take it in. Such endless majesty. - http://i2.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/facebook/000/641/298/448.jpg
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Could I jump Springfield Gorge?
- Should I use the Oxford comma?
- Was that someone famous, and did they see me staring at them?
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably wandering downtown, grabbing a coffee from someplace that isn't Tims or Starbucks (I'm on the fence about Second Cup) and stopping in at any little book or record shop I might happen to pass.
You should message me if
If you'd like to try me in Smash Bros or Mario Kart.
If you're a fan of conversations about everything and nothing.
If you have an appreciation for classic Simpsons.
If you're not against tattoos. Because at this point, there's really not much I can do about that...
