Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to think I'm a pretty easy-going, happy type. I'm a big
music fan and love going to shows. I'm into art, FOOD, being active
without obsession, and cruising around on my bike. My bike's name
is Ignacio, incidentally, which must be pronounced with great Latin
flare...and ideally a flamenco hand twist/stomp combo. You just did
it, didn't you?
I'm very social and love my friends. They're all keepers. I can get
the party moving but also like to go with the flow.
What else...I live downtown and love the city, but also like
getting out of it and into a bit of space. I've travelled fairly
widely and have lived abroad twice. I want to see every bit of the
world if I can, which surely makes me the most unique person on
Well, that's me, more or less. Kinda. Well it's a tiny internet

They usually tell me that my name makes me sound like a spy, or a
pornstar. And that I look like neither...possibly because I am
Update: I'm partly mustachioed. Well scruffy all round. No change
in pornstar status.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm into any and all music. Indie, blues, soul, all of it. Caribou,
Broken Social Scene, Alvvays, Radiohead, Band of Skulls, Bobby-D,
and Stevie Ray all come to mind, but I try to keep discovering.
Some favourite authors: Eggers, Steinbeck, Helprin, Franzen, and
Hemingway. I've got a long queue of podcasts - This American Life,
Serial, Stuff You Should Know, Savage Lovecast, etc etc. I'm into
most kinds of films...light comedy, intense drama, quirky
thoughtful ones. I'm also a sucker for nature documentaries, for
some reason. Probably David Attenborough's voice. Best naps ever.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
