Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a published author who is currently leading a not-so-secret
double-life as a guy who makes videos and puts them on YouTube for
the hell of it and actually makes a bit of money off of them.
Most of my free time is spent working on writing, marketing, and
film. (Mostly just 'cause it's fun.)
I currently work full time for a company recognized across Canada
for being at the top of their game, which looks great on a resume,
but ultimately it's a means to an end to get to where I want to be,
which I work on a little more every day.
I'm also the full-time single father of a seventeen year old. (Yes.
I got started young.) She is awesome, talented and pretty
hilarious. Not to mention that she is part of the package that is
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently working on a number of creative projects. I'm working on
my third book (The first two were fantasy/sci-fi), an exploration
of gender roles as they've evolved since the advent of
technological society, with a focus on masculinity. (For the
record, I'm neither a feminist nor an MRA, but I do think both
groups have pros and cons.) I also produce a series of videos
commenting on various internet subcultures, and I am in the process
of writing and directing my first film.
I'm full-time single parent of a teenage daughter. It's a
challenge, but completely worth every bead of sweat, drop of blood
and stream of tears. My daughter's safety and happiness is the
*most* important thing in my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to music a little *too* loudly.
Flipping the pillow over so I can get to the cold side.
Amusing myself and those unlucky enough to be around me by my wacky
I'm often asked for advice from friends and colleagues-- normally
in issues of marketing, graphic design, presentation and sometimes
in issues dealing with emotional health, relationships and getting
over drinking without the need of a twelve-step program.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm certain it probably has something to do with my voice. I can't
verify this myself (as I sound different) but I've been told my
voice is 'enchanting' and 'powerful.'
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lots. And lots. And lots still. I'm big into speculative stories,
listen to an equal mix of rock, alternative, electronic, folk and
*some* types of metal. This ranges from Ellie Goulding to Kaskade
to Imagine Dragons to Tool to Deftones to Lindsey Stirling (bonus
points if you know who she is) to Galaktikon to everything Maynard
James Keenan has ever done... I could literally go on for hours.
You get the picture.
As for movies, I couldn't even begin. Lately I've been extolling
the virtues of some more obscure indie films, like Ink and
Wristcutters: A Love Story.
Right now my big shows are Doctor Who (Capaldi is gonna rock that
role), Game of Thrones, Once Upon a Time, etc...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Wine Gums
2. My daughter
3. Opposable thumbs
4. Maynard James Keenan
5. Doctor Who
6. My Kobo
7. Breaking arbitrary rules put forth by OKCupid.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Snapple. I spend a lot of time thinking about Snapple.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going out and painting the town red. Then returning home to wash
off the paint and get some pants. (I always forget the pants.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My guilty pleasure involves voxels.
