My self-summary
I spend my evenings tinkering with cameras, computer code, and photoshop, my mornings hitting the books or hitting the gym, my afternoons pretending to know what I’m talking about, and my weekends pretending to be a wizard.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a professional transmedia artist, writer, and producer. My creative work mixes reality and live actors with digitally projected special effects, motion sensors, robots, and live video to create immersive environments for theatre and online media. My recent installations have been featured at Nüit Blanché, the Toronto Fringe and at independent arts venues in the Toronto theatre scene. I even do special effects and lighting for burlesque shows and electro-pop concerts! This fall is shaping up to be my most productive yet, so it's a great time to hang out and revel in that post-show buzz.

When I'm not producing my own work I teach media design, theatre technologies, and performance theory at the University of Toronto, where I am currently writing my PhD thesis.
I’m really good at
Growing beards.

I make the perfect steak using a freezer and an oven. For most everything else, I taught myself how to cook reading Tim Ferris' Four-Hour Chef.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This song, video, and band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfOdWSiyWoc

Jurassic Park, Star Wars, and Terminator fired my imagination alongside the speculative and fantasy fiction of JRR Tolkien, Margaret Atwood, Philip K Dick, Issac Asimov, and Kurt Vonnegut. I get my humour from the likes of Douglas Adams, Sue Townsend, Monty Python, Samuel Beckett, and the 90s-era Simpsons.

I tear through about two books a week. As an avid nonfiction reader, this includes a lot of history, science and technocultural commentary and media theory alongside some graphic novels, sci-fi or fantasy. Sometimes I fantasize about how I would direct the HBO series adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillion's Preacher.

I'm mostly a ravenous carnivore though, a steak and potatoes kind of guy who loves bacon and eggs with dark roast coffee.

Podcasts. Savage Love, This American Life, and Hardcore History are my top stations, but I recently caved and bought an Audible subscription to get more listening.

Video Games. Portal, Shadow of the Colossus, and Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past defined my young adulthood, adolescence, and childhood respectively.
The six things I could never do without
I can't sleep without some sort of fan or white noise. Like, I can't.

On a somewhat related note: an early alarm in the morning, and a sleep button to mash about six times before I get up.

Pocket change. Since breaking 20's to pay for coffee feels... wrong.

A small sketchbook and my laptop travel with me everywhere I go so that if inspiration strikes I can make a quick sketch or rant on for a few thousand words.

I think this Internet thing is pretty wild.

Let's also not mince words about this one: 95% dark chocolate.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"Man, I really should be working on my research paper right now... you know what would be a better idea though? Internet. FOREVER."

"Oh wow, that's a great idea! I should totally write that down. You know what? I forget what it was now."
On a typical Friday night I am
My ideal Friday night involves either beer and board games, whiskey and steak, or red wine and good indie theatre.

On the rest of the weekend, I alternate between getting my ass kicked playing Settlers or Power Grid with friends or running the best Dungeons and Dragons campaign in the city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a kid, I used to carry around a clipboard and a film script asking people if they wanted to be in my movie.

You should message me if
If have a genuine love for art, geekery, dirty jokes and bad puns, and are looking for a +1 to explore the indie arts scene in the city.

You should also be down with beards.
