My self-summary
I consider myself a very optimistic person. I like exploring a wide array of experiences, and if I haven't done something before I'm almost always down to try it.

I love conversation. I've been called sassy, but mostly I just love bantering with someone who can keep up with me. The kind of open ended conversation that runs for hours and covers every possible topic is my absolute favorite, especially over a pint.

Musically I can be a bit of a jack-of-all-trades. My favorite genres are indie and alt-rock, but I've been known to frequent the occasional rave.

In terms of my interests, I'm a bit of a scattered picture. I'm a unabashed nerd into board-gaming, science fiction, comics, and video games. That said, I also love the outdoors, and I'm actually trying to get into cave exploration (done it twice so far, and I'm stoked to go again). Really, I never shy away from anything as long as there's good company along for the ride.
What I’m doing with my life
I got my MA, I worked for a bit against my debt, saved up some money and I've just moved to Ottawa to try and find a job in my field. I'm looking to get involved with foreign affairs ideally.
I’m really good at
I've got a knack for languages, I know my way around philosophy, politics, music, and I'm a pretty good cook if I say so myself. I also kick a lot of ass when playing board games.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Science fiction and futurology, off the top of my head. I also spend quite a bit of time in my own imagined worlds and scenarios.
On a typical Friday night I am
Concerts, parties, video games, relaxing with a few close friends, or whatever strikes me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once cried myself to sleep because Napoleon Bonaparte was dead. Can you guess whether I was drunk or I was a kid?
