Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi other hopeful cupids! I'm 6Lights, and I'm a jack-of-all-trades
in the entertainment industry. I hail from Edmonton and moved out
here five years ago for school. I found myself staying around, and
eventually got a job in what I love doing most. I'm a massive geek
about what I do: I get really into projects and work with a great
group of people who are the same way. I'm hoping to meet somebody
with some similar interests, but would prefer to try some new
things. Read on and see if we're a good match. Cheers!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Graduated from NAIT in '06 and worked designing piping systems in
Alberta for a few years. I currently work as a lighting
designer/sales/install/repair guy for a local production
company...you may have seen my work at Canada Day, Rifflandia,
MusicFest, Sunfest, Jazzfest, Blues Bash and many other events
around the city. I plan on staying in this industry as long as I
can, because I love it so much. I have run my own mobile DJ
business for over 10 years and specialize in weddings!
In my free time (hah!) I enjoy snowboarding, scuba diving, and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
It's tough to say. I'm a jack of all trades and a master of none. I
can paint your house, fix a car, rig a stage, do your physics
homework, plant a garden, cook (I'm actually pretty good at
that)...the list goes on. I like to be certified in things, it's a
bit of an addiction.
I'm probably most proud of my baking. I went into baked-goods
withdrawal when I moved out here, since grandma wasn't making
cookies anymore. I make a killer loaf of banana bread (with or
without rum) and focaccia bread; my apple pie is good too!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not sure...my glasses? Probably my glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anything by Douglas Adams, Douglas Coupland; I love the
dystopic/utopic style of writing (1984, Brave New World, Fahrenheit
451, etc). A bit of sci-fi as well (Dune, Ender sagas). LOTR of
Movies: anything but horror (never enjoyed those much); anything
Tarantino, old Eastwood movies, 300, LOTR, Monty Python, anything
Kubrick, anything with Jason Statham.
TV: Mad Men, Big Bang Theory, and pretty much everything on the
Discovery Channel. Huge Eskimos/Oilers fan!
Music: I like most of anything, with the exception of hardcore
metal and really bad pop. Acid Jazz, regular jazz, blues, rock, old
school hip hop (Tribe Called Quest, Geto Boys, etc). My music
collection is extensive and awesome!
Food: pretty much anything. Sushi once a week or I go nuts. Love
Italian, but I really enjoy making my own combinations of things. I
do an awesome chili!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, my bed, my car, my shower, an internet connection, and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I like to plan my shows in my head, so I spend a lot of time
fleshing out ideas. I'm one of those people who really loves their
job, and it tends to permeate my everyday life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually doing an awesome show. If it's not a festival, I sub in at
Upstairs and Touch the odd time, and light some local cover bands
on a regular basis. If I do manage a Friday off, I can usually be
found at home with a book and a pot of tea, or out having a pint of
stout with some friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Come on, you didn't think it'd be that easy, did you? Fine: my man
crush is Jason Statham. But more because I wish I looked like him.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're not a bar star and want to meet a genuinely down-to-earth
guy (I can provide references!). I can talk politics, policy, and
social issues with the best of them but really enjoy a night in on
the couch with a blanket and a movie.
