My self-summary
Continually and unapologetically curious about the human condition. Capable of seeing the good and the bad in pretty much anyone in equal parts.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
II just started work as a public health researcher in the DTES.

I'm also a photographer. Here's a bit of my work. In another life I was a party photographer in the Vancouver queer party scene.

I’m really good at
Jack of all trades, master of none. Here's a few things I've got a knack for:

Photography.
Photoshop.
Driving too fast
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
Height, with a strange gawky gracefulness, like a ballerina giraffe.

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
Kurt Vonnegut was pretty formative for me. Especially, Mother Night, Slaughter House 5, Breakfast of Champions, Pearls Before Swine... Cat's Cradle.

What else? Terry Pratchett, , Garbriel Garcia Marquez, Harisu Morikami. You know, good authors.

All Hayao Miyazaki. All Charlie Kaufman. All Wes Anderson, even Darjeeling Limited. Throw in some classics like Brazil, Lawrence of Arabia, Alien.

Never trust anyone who says they "listen to everything". TV on the Radio, David Bowie, and M83 when you have to feel cool walking down the street. Sigur Ros, Bjork, and Bon Iver when you just want to turn into a moss covered rock and melt into the side of a boreal fjord. The Weeknd, Grimes, and Theophilus London when you need to get down to business.

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
(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.

2. caffeine

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.

4. Baths

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
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
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
The Red Wedding affected me far more than I like to admit.

If we match 95% on sex questions but only 10% on dating/ethics questions, cause that sounds like fun.
