My self-summary
I'm a self-diagnosed nerd who loves food, coffee, enthralling books, video games, robotics, design, movies, tasty beer, sarcasm, and oxford commas.

I grew up outside of Halifax, NS and went to Dalhousie University in the city to study Engineering. While there I ran around doing the foolish things teenagers do and either getting too little or too much sleep. After I graduated I decided I needed a change of pace and so I moved to Montreal to pursue a life of hedonism.

I tend to be silly, talkative when I want to be, and occasionally a little crass. I'm equally enthusiastic about adventures to see mysterious shows or another long night spent rambling with friends about everything from world politics to which particular '90s cartoon theme song perfectly defined our childhood. I also love run-on sentences.

In case you don't make it down that far, message me if you've got something fun or interesting to chat about. I am, if you were going to ask, doing just fine.
I’m really good at
Making silly faces? Fixing your router? Bumping into inanimate objects?

I am a skillful man.
The first things people usually notice about me
My uncanny resemblance to Captain America.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ah! Books! I have a lot of favourites, I tend to occupy the Sci-fi/Fantasy genres pretty reliably. I love The Gentlemen Bastards series, Greg Bear, The Uplift Trilogy, Miles Vorkosigan Series, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, and many more that I can't remember off the top of my head. In the non-fiction area I tend to love books by some of my favourite scientists. The Demon-Haunted World and Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman
are some obvious examples of this.

I have been told many times that I'm woefully ignorant of a huge section of classix films and I'm slowly working on fixing that. I love Miyazaki movies, Akira, Catch Me If You Can, Terminator 2, Drive, Cabaret, Fight Club, Almost Famous, Gattaca, and the list goes on. I have an ever-present weakness for Disney, Pixar, and Tarantino films.

Old favourites: Adventure Time, Star Trek TNG, Firefly, Cowboy Bebop, icouldgoonforever.

Current shows: Steven Universe, One Punch Man, Gravity Falls.

Music! I know it's the common answer but I do tend to be all over the place. My music collection contains everything from bluegrass, to glitch-hop , to indy-rock. Some of my favourite bands are: Aesop Rock, Arcade Fire, Amanda Palmer, The Black Keys, The Cat Empire, Dragonette, Hard-Fi, Hey Rosetta!, Iron & Wine, Ok Go, Ratatat, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Yeasayer.
The six things I could never do without
Narcissism
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I find people really interesting, I tend to think about how weird/awesome they are a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
At one of my close friends' apartment hanging out, drinking some craft beer, smoking some sisha, and just talking or watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I have a hard time relating to people I don't know very well, it can make me come across as shy or cold. I warm up considerably as I get more comfortable.
You should message me if
You're looking to meet new friends and help me explore this lovely city. As my questions suggest, I am poly, sex-positive, and open; I strongly suggest that if you plan on winning my tiny little robot heart, you share the same beliefs. I also know a lot about robots, people like robots, right?

Also if you chuckle sadly to yourself when someone mentions gamer gate.
