Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am originally from Toronto, but have been in Edmonton for several
years now. I am a newspaper reporter, so if nothing else, you
should meet me so you can say you saw one before we go
I do what I do, because I am an insanely curious person and like
telling stories. There are few jobs I can think of that let me ask
this many questions. I think of myself as smart and funny, whether
that is true is up to other people.
I like variety, the combination of roaring nights on the town and
quiet nights in.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a mild-mannered reporter by day and by night a mild-mannered
reporter tucked into bed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Asking questions, listening, telling stories, I am good at those
things at work, but I like to think I am good at those things off
the clock as well. When I ask someone about their day, it is
because I generally want to know.
I am an above average cook and I have a vast trove of absolutely
useless knowledge, which is great for trivial pursuit and just
about nothing else. I like to make people laugh.
I also shine a mean shoe. Seriously, it is just about the only
thing I can do well with my hands.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am not sure what people notice, a decent question for a first
date I suppose.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like books a lot, so I could probably fill this page with books,
but at the top of the list includes Into thin Air, The Perfect
Storm, Catcher in the Rye, Moneyball, War reporting for cowards,
the Game and I have a mild addiction to John Grisham novels. I tend
to read non-fiction, over fiction.
Movies: Godfather, Star Wars, The American president, Ocean's
Eleven, The Dark Night, Saving Private Ryan.
Music: My tastes are pretty eclectic I like Pearl Jam, Sam Cooke,
the Commitments, Johnny Cash, Metric, Dave Mathews band,
TV: West Wing, House, Frontline, How I met your mother, Criminal
Minds, Castle I also watch Dragon's Den and Shark Tank and a lot of
HGTV for reasons I can't really explain.
Food: I like a variety of food and trying new things, but can't
handle spicy food. It's not my fault it's genetic. My family is
Scottish and the potato and salt are the only spices we know.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, information, first season of the West Wing, phone, pens,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My work, Canadian politics, U.S. politics, books, where I have left
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends for a drink, I work Sunday to Thursday so Friday
is my Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sense of directions sucks. I print google maps to places that
should be easy to find.
Also, I can't tie a bow-tie. When I look at one untied, I don't
really even understand the moving parts.
