Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm from Ottawa, dabbled in the public service but decided it
wasn't for me. I work for an industry association in communications
and digital media. I love my job because, having come from a social
science/arts background and now having to learn science and basic
physics, it is probably helping stave off early onset Alzheimer's.
I'm addicted to cycling for charity and seems I do a fundraising
ride every year. I think it's important to balance my good fortune
by giving back. I've done the Rona MS Bike Tour 4 times, the CN
Cycle ride twice, and recently cycled across Vietnam to raise money
for CARE Canada. And while I no longer harbor childhood fantasies
of being a rock star, I still love to rock!
What I’m doing with my life

I'm good at making my friends laugh. I have very outgoing siblings
so had to develop a personality to keep up. I must be good at
giving advice because people keep telling me their problems. I'm
very good at relaxing. I love chilling out on a nice day with some
music and interesting thoughts. I'm good at intense conversation
and embracing a new perspective on something.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If you meet me in a social situation, I'm probably laughing too
loud, having a lot of opinions and smiling a lot. Also, I'm a tall
drink of water with long hair and bright blue eyes. Hard to

Currently watching: Love 30 Rock; I miss Tina Fey. Parks and
Recreation is fantastic. Looking forward to the last season of
Dexter. I never miss Mad Men.
Currently reading: Crime and Punishment (it's taking forever), The
Great Gatsby (I love Fitzgerald's use of alliteration), Lean In
(let's see what the COO of Facebook has to say about women leading

Currently listening to: At this very moment, Save Room by John
Legend. I'm really into The Xx, the new Daft Punk is pretty good,
various songs of summer... I like a lot of stuff. Let me think
about this some more.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My bike
2. Breathtaking views and cloudscapes
3. A friend to lean on
5. Something to work towards
6. The people in my life who make me want to be better
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typically on a Friday night I'm exhausted from my week. It's not
glamourous or exciting but that's what Saturday is for. Friday
