people that I love. I am a creative type, and I enjoy a lot of
artsy activities (sketching, painting, illustration, knitting,
dancing, singing etc.), although I wouldn't say those things define

many different places around the world, through work and
Above all, I am a nice, easy-going guy who wants to make the world
a better place!
What I’m doing with my life
I am the Communications Manager for one of Canada's top children's
charities. I am passionate about non-profit work, and I'm doing
something that I really love (which helps) too!
I’m really good at
Learning new things. I've always been a person who gets bored
easily, so I've learned to pick up on new things rather quickly.
You'll find that I am always coming up with new things I want to
learn how to do. This past year, I learned how to plan weddings,
create websites, do graphic design, and cable knit. Who knows what
this year will bring!

Never say never ;)
Here are some things that I appreciate having in my life:
- Loved ones
- A job that allows me to give back
- A country that gives me so much freedom
- Resources to clothe me, protect me, feed me, and entertain me!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to turn my everyday situations into funny movie screenplays or
SNL / MadTV skits.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching Netflix and knitting. I am somewhat of a homebody, but
every now and again I will head out and meet up with friends, go to
a movie, or out for drinks/dancing!
