Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(Note: it seems like the default location under "looking for..." is
"near me." If you are here because I looked at your profile first
but I didn't message you, there is a good chance it's because you
have your profile set to "near me" and I just didn't want to bug
you. Feel free to message if you don't actually mind
I used to have a lot more filled out here, but I have discovered
that if I give everything away right from the beginning it leaves
out the fun in getting to know each other. That said, I'm a very
open book once we start talking. You can ask me anything.
I am very sarcastic in my sense of humor, but I know when to be
I love life, family and friends. I know people say that often, but
I truly mean it. I'm a glass-half-full kind of guy. I'm all about
trying new opportunities and walking through doors as they open.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm privileged to say I'm a storyteller.
Currently I edit and write words for one of Canada's national
newspapers, but I've worked as a journalist in many other
capacities (specializing in media, music and geeky things). Radio,
TV, online, print; anything really.
I've done a bit of traveling with my work, mainly throughout the
United States though. I would love to land a reporting job that
required more traveling as going to new places and experiencing new
cultures is fascinating for me.
I received a Bachelors of Commerce degree in business management,
majoring in entrepreneurship and innovation. After that I did
postgraduate journalism, emphasizing in broadcast. I work in print
now. Go figure.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making myself look ridiculous. Every day.
But seriously, I dislike this question. It feels like you should
have some sort of ego in order to answer it. I try not to have an
I suppose you could say I'm good at doing the little things.
Remember the details. Making people feel wanted.
I'm also good at having fun and trying new things, but I'm not a
party-your-face-off kind of guy (though I do often enjoy a good
drink). I enjoy the company and want to remember it.
- People watching (ssh, it's fascinating sometimes).
- Cooking Minute Rice in only 58 seconds.
- American history / politics (again, so fascinating and
- Technology -- just call me the I.T. guy. Or just geek. I'm a
sucker for nerdy things (devices, gaming, comics, etc).
- Disney trivia. Or cartoons in general, but especially Disney.
What can I say? I'm a big Disney guy.
I will admit I'm good at pop culture and current event punchlines.
If you stay up on your current events, we'll crack some serious
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Eek, again with the ego questions...
I guess people say my smile, laughter and sense of humor. I do have
really blue eyes, so I get comments on those too from time to time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I read primarily non-fiction stuff. I love books on American
history, politics, media, journalism, sociology, social studies,
business, etc. I just love finding out what makes people tick and
why people do what they do, either as an aggregate or also on a
smaller scale. Biographies are a ton of fun too. I just love
Otherwise, I recently signed up for Marvel Unlimited, which gives
you access to over 16,000 Marvel comics. Best subscription service
ever. I keep getting lost in so many comics, including Guardians of
the Galaxy, Spider-man, Deadpool, Avengers and much more. Can't
wait until Disney comics start finding their way in there.
Movies: I'll watch pretty much anything, sometimes even the drama
comedies / chick flicks with my younger sister and mom when I'm
home (ssh, don't tell anyone). I love watching documentaries too.
Again with the learning thing.
Shows: Again, I'll watch pretty much anything (including cartoons.
LOVE old cartoons). But some of my current favorites include Modern
Family, Doctor Who, Seinfeld, The Walking Dead, The West Wing
(still addicted!), The Newsroom, BBC's Sherlock, The Daily Show
with Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and
Music: I listen to pretty much everything except twangy country
(though pop country isn't bad) and screamo music. I love, love,
love music. There is always music playing and I love finding new
bands to listen to.
Food: Pizza! No, seriously. I love pizza. And coffee. It's
basically a food group for me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Aside from the obvious ones (family, friends, etc)...
A typing/writing instrument
Sunny summer days
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What makes people tick.
How I probably should be doing something productive right now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually working or having a relaxing evening in after a long week.
That or covering an event for a story.
But in terms of "what do I do for fun, but maybe not on a Friday"?
I love exploring the city and finding new places to visit...
Hanging out around the house after a busy week to watch
movies/TV... Going out with friends for those casual kind of fun
nights (bowling, museums, markets, etc). I love spontaneity if I'm
with people I love.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I missed being born on a leap day by two days (it was a leap year).
I would be, what, five right now? How awesome would that have
Again, I'm a pretty open book though. The main reason I'm here is
because I have been so busy with school and work that it has been
hard to meet people.
