Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Looking at my photo and user name, you're probably thinking this
guy is too crazy for me. Yes, it's true the button down shirt
shouts: "Wild", even "Out of control." The khakis might make you
wonder, "Is he wearing light coloured pants outside in late summer
- with no concern for slipping and picking up an unsightly grass
stain?" The barn cat probably has you saying, "Wow, he really is a
'throw caution to the wind' kind of man. To hell with his allergies
- he doesn't seem to care!!!"
If the picture doesn't have you running the other way, surely the
user name will. "He's pretty bold and provocative," you'll think.
"Smile? What kind of a cocky, arrogant person starts off with a
revealing look INSIDE his own mouth? And TO - that could mean
anything. Thirsty oddball? Tasty offer? Tights optional? This guy
must be disturbed!"
Well, rest easy okcupid reader... Don't let this first impression
concern you. Despite how rebellious it looks, behind the bad boy
exterior and the risque user name is a man like other men.
I am a dad to two wonderful, awesome, incredible kids. I am a
writer and communications specialist, I love the city and offer my
spare time to making it better. I work with a team of volunteers to
make sure planters are planted, graffiti is removed and our
community remains connected.
I love the city. The ability to walk to the bakery or visit a local
hardware store is very important to me.
At the same time, my work combines rural and urban Ontario in a
very unique way. I visit farms across the country and engage in
some spirited controversy in our cities. Love to travel and explore
When I take my kids, eight and ten, skating, tobogganing or snow
fort building, I am probably enjoying it more than them. Love the
Being separated, I do have down time, and am really coming to
appreciate that. Excited about what is next!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Making magazines, fixing sidewalks, holding meetings, talking to
the media, and of course, conducting science experiments on how
Crayola ink reacts to buckets full of water. Also spending a fair
bit of time admiring and writing about horses. Right now, pretty
excited to have a mare who is expecting a foal in the spring - a

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
the art of making the perfect snowball. Yes, anybody can make a
good snowball from ideal packing snow, but the challenge is to do
this with powder. (Spoiler alert) The key is using your bare hands.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In the politest of tones, I'll have to ask family, friends, air and
water to sit this one out.
With them resting comfortably on the sidelines, it gives the
delightful clingstone peach a fighting chance. She is on the list
only if she's a Leo and born and raised in Ontario. While she
cracks the starting lineup, let's be perfectly clear: she shall not
upstage the fabulous fiddlehead, who finally will get some much
deserved attention. Yes, the curliest and cutest veggie will no
longer be denied!
Moving from the dinner table, I shall not live without my favourite
companions Mr. and Mrs. Ticket. Oh the fun we've had - late nights,
early mornings, matinees... Without their influence, I'm not sure
what my life would be. I can only imagine sitting on the bench
outside the theatre contemplating the great wonder beyond those
double doors. Sitting in the train station admiring the travelers
as they board and depart, never to experience the feeling myself.
They have accompanied me on my finest of journeys, and they shall
not be left behind.
Now it gets tough. Glue has spent a decade lobbying to make this
list but I only have room for one adhesive and that position I'm
sorry to say, belongs to tape - glorious, magical tape.
I'm sure 90% of the lists on this site include wheel. And while
it's as predictable as the ipod, my fine round friend will once
again win out with his impressive rolling prowess.
Finally, with one spot remaining, there are so many worthy
candidates. Rock has expressed keen interest. Cotton candy sent in
a strongly worded letter. Tupperware was caught trying to steal my
password to write herself into the box...
But frankly, none of them has a chance against the clear winner:
word. Her flexibility provides me great company. And she gets more
lovely with each passing day, especially when we meet up with
someone who appreciates her equally.
Sorry rock, but don't give up. Your time will come!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why Smee never found a more ambitious Captain to plunder with.
Sure, Hook is a stylish dresser and a smooth talking leader - even
the steel accessory is somewhat cool, but the man has major flaws.
A complete lack of focus on the subject of treasure. Totally
preoccupied with the flying boy. Deathly afraid of a ticking
reptile... A pirate? Hardly.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
having dinner with my kids. Hoping this can stay a tradition. With
the craziness of the week, the concept of turning everything off
for the night is something that feels right at the end of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I feel sad that the fourth little piggy had no roast beef.
Really the third little piggy couldn't have shared one slice? Would
it have been too much to ask for the first little piggy to pick
some up? He WAS at the market!
