Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Continually and unapologetically curious about the human condition.
Capable of seeing the good and the bad in pretty much anyone in
One thing you should know about me is I had a somewhat
unconventional childhood. I grew up with my siblings on a remote
homestead on the rural BC coast, and was home schooled until age
twelve or so. This had two notable effects. First, this thing you
people call society is really fucking strange from an outside
perspective. Secondly, coastal fjords are where I go whenever I
close my eyes.
Sexuality is something I put high priority on, and is something I'm
very open about. I've worked consciously my whole life to overcome
internalized homophobia and preconceived prejudice, and at this
point I consider myself open to people with all manner of gender
and sexual identities.
If you want to get to know me better you should know that I'm in a
long-term, non-exclusive relationship. If you're curious you can

. Neither of us bite.
Open/interested in pretty much any arrangment of ways people can be
friendly with each other.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a couple of day jobs in the area of social services and
education. One as an residential counsellor at a group home, and a
second as special education assistant in schools.
I'm also a photographer. Here's a bit of my work. Lately I've been
working as a party photographer in the Vancouver queer party
They say the Tumblr is the window to the soul:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Driving just right.
Inappropriate witty Facebook comments.
Breakfast in bed.
Making people uncomfortable with awkward silence.
Picking the right movie to watch.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Height, with a strange gawky gracefulness, like a ballerina
And the hair. I gotta say, it's great to be a tall white guy with a
full head of hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

was pretty formative for me. Especially, Mother Night,
Slaughter House 5, Breakfast of Champions, Pearls Before Swine...
What else? Terry Pratchett, , Garbriel Garcia Marquez, Harisu
Morikami. You know, good authors.
Movies that are awesome and you should watch: Eternal
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
, the Life Aquatic
, Brazil Lawrence of Arabia
, Donnie Darko
New York Me, You, and
Everyone We Know
Music...It's impossible to tell where my actual taste ends and the
pretense begins anymore... but i like most of this: Arcade Fire
, TV on the Radio
, Modest Mouse
Food: Mostly homemade and gourmet. I used to work as a cook. Not to
say I'm Gordon Ramsay or anything but I know my way around the
kitchen. If I'm not making it myself then it's probably oysters,
paired with a single malt islay whiskey.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(I hate this question. Without pressure we could all learn to do
without most everything we have. I could just be a douche and list
the obvious things: 1) liquid water 2) edible carbon based
foodstuffs 3) Pressurized atmoshere containing nitrogen and oxygen
at a ratio of 3 to 1. etc etc. But I'm going to play along and read
this as "Stuff I Like")
1. semi-regular masturbation.
3. Eating a good meal with a friend. Eating alone is a good way to
go insane. Cults use forced isolation during meal times to break
down your personality during the first stage of brainwashing. So if
you live alone go out for lunch with a friend. Of if you have no
friends get a cat and feed it at the table.
5. Modern telecommunications. Actually I can go both ways on this
one. You would probably get a similar response if you asked a
junkie how they felt about heroin. I mean they don't want to live
without it but they can't honestly say what it does for them.
6. Bicycles. A human on a bike is one of the most efficient systems
ever devised by man or nature. For a young childless person living
in a major city there is virtually no reason to own a car other
than to have something to make out in the back seat of.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. I'm a thinker. A busy little bee. I have an adequate
brain but a flawed work ethic. I think about why I am the way I am,
why you are the way you are.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I work odd hours. Weekends are pretty meaningless to me. Sometimes
I don't want to go out, I just want to stay in, get things done.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The Red Wedding affected me far more than I like to admit.
