What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I live by the rule that one should pursue one's dreams and so far
I've been pretty good at honouring that rule. I've worked in
theatre, in philanthropy, in sponsorships and marketing, in
leadership development and in coaching. Who knows what will be
next, but I guarantee it'll be some kind of adventure.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening: it's a bit of an occupational hazard really (comes with
being trained as a life coach).
Cooking: there was a time when I thought I'd be a chef. Then I
tried working in a restaurant and realized I could have way more
fun if I just cooked as a hobby.
Yoga: It's not that I'm really good AT yoga, but I'm really good at
trying to get really good at yoga - which just means I like doing
it a lot - and am happy to fail brilliantly while trying.
Scrabble: I used to be better - I'm out of practice these days, but
there was a time when I was pretty good at it - especially when I
had a Scrabble dictionary somewhere nearby...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love all kinds of books, movies, music and food. I don't enjoy
limiting it to my favourites. Diversity is part of the fun! That
said, I can tell you that I'm a sucker for a REALLY good story and
I search that out anywhere I can.
These days I'm reading a lot about the psychology of well-being
(positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning,
achievement) - pretty cool stuff!
Friday Night Lights and the Wire are two of the best TV series ever
made. Parenthood is pretty awesome. Glee is a not-so-guilty
Bon Iver, Mumford and Sons, Dan Mangan are all at the top of my
playlists these days.
Favourite restaurants include Yours Truly, Enoteca Sociale, Ruby
WatchCo., Cafe Belong, but I love trying new places. I read Toronto
Life restaurant reviews religiously to figure out where I'm going

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At some play, dance show, opera, concert, movie.
Or I'm having dinner with my parents.
Or I'm hosting a dinner party.
Or I'm just relaxing and watching TV.
