Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you’re looking for “normal”, I’m so sorry (not really), but you
have (un)fortunately landed on the wrong profile. Thanks for
stopping by and have a great day! If you’re looking for quirky,
driven, energetic, intelligent, loving, passionate about life,
honest and open, and/or active, then we will likely get along well
(if nothing else).
A few things that make me smile: people in bright colourful
outfits, singing at random (sometimes inappropriate) moments, yoga,
dirty and/or ridiculously cheesy jokes, knowing that something I’ve
said or done has made a difference for someone, riding my bike
across the city, dancing until the wee hours, surprise visits, the
week(s) the lilacs are in bloom, hugs, picnics and other outdoor
adventures, and getting into bed with clean sheets after a long
I’m looking for something real: adventure and communication and
mutual support, no games, and that feeling of “I can’t wait to see
them again”. I want someone with whom I can create something that
makes working on the tough stuff in relationships worth it. I love
my life and love being independent, and I also want to share it
with someone who is as excited about life as I am. I work hard,
play hard, and try very hard not to take myself too
Also, I swear I didn't come up with the nickname "Doctor Yoga" by
myself (and I recognize how ridiculous it is). It was a nickname
given to me by a drunk vacation buddy who couldn't remember my
name, but could remember that I was both a doctoral student and a
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have my dream job in leadership development and (business)
performance consulting and love it.
In my non-work time, I play soccer, write and perform my own spoken
word poetry, organize the national spoken word community, produce
self-development courses, and most importantly, spend time with my
friends and family.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people smile, laughing really loudly, listening, having
meaningful conversations, organizing stuff, performing poetry in my
underwear, and teaching.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile and my rather loud laugh.

(Some of) my favourite authors include John Irving, Douglas
Coupland, and Ann-Marie MacDonald. The Little Prince and Jonathan

I'm in need of a pick-up, I read a Hafiz poem.
(Some of) my favourite films:
Amelie, Shortbus, Once, Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight, Miyazaki's
Vampire Weekend, Ani DiFranco, A Fine Frenzy, Black Keys, Bright
Eyes, C.R. Avery, Corin Raymond, Head & the Heart, Graydon
James & The Young Novelists, modern musicals, folk, indie,
classic rock, country, and pretty much anything else except
non-conscious rap/hip hop and metal.
Anything with a lot of vegetables, especially green ones; Thai;
Indian; Sushi; and Ethiopian.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Other than friends and family? Sunshine, music, kale, a bike,
soccer and yoga.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can squeeze the most juice out of every day, and how
gloriously hilarious we human beings are.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to a yoga class, seeing a band play, making/eating dinner
with friends, dancing all night, watching a movie, going to a
poetry slam, sitting around a living room singing with friends,
travelling, producing self-development courses...I don't think I
really have "typical" Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own DVDs of both Sister Act 1 and 2.

...you're interested in having engaging, intelligent, and maybe
goofy conversation, preferably not forever on this site, but in
real life after a relatively short period of time during which we
establish that we don't creep each other out ;)
