My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an often-traveling, sustainably-minded, adventurous, outdoorsy Canadian with a mission to learn and experience new things. I don't take myself too seriously, or take my friends for granted.

Since 2008 I've been in Perth, making this the third continent I've lived upon. There's no denying I'm addicted to independent travel, especially in obscure countries. I love how people—from Amritsar to Zanzibar, from Arequipa to Urumqi—can be so different and yet so much alike. This world is amazing.

I grew up balancing time between a big city and the quiet wooded lakeside, and am drawn to naturally beautiful places and tranquil wilderness. I rock climb — but I've been known to climb trees (especially to get figs), public art, and buildings too. I try my best to capture inspiring and educational photographs, and even earn enough money selling the photos to pay for my hobby. I'm also passionate about living sustainably (without being extreme—I shower!) and volunteer in various projects/campaigns to help others reduce their impact.

Things I practice but am not very good at: Walking on my hands, growing worms (in the wormbin, not my intestine), playing frisbee and guitar (not simultaneously), meditation, sailing, surfing, kitesurfing, and spinning poi.

I'm an analytical person, and love to discuss and philosophize. My life seems to involve a lot of learning, personal development, and self-improvement. I love those who humble, inspire, laugh at, or teach me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Using my industry/engineering background at an energy efficiency and carbon strategy consultancy, and trying to build a community owned wind farm at Fremantle port. Using Perth as a springboard for travel into the entire Asia-Pacific region. Building character. Making the most of life, because it's the only one you get (unless you're Buddhist)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, cooking and baking, teaching, making technology useful, spending money on experiences, not spending money on much else. Being humbled by the cultures of the world. Looking up trivia that arises in conversation. Sharing music, sharing love, sharing ideas.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am open and engaging; I love to talk to strangers; I take photos; I know a little about a lot. I no longer sound quite Canadian, to Canadians.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:The Shadow of the Sun (Ryszard Kapuściński); Guns Germs and Steel (Jared Diamond); Blink (Malcolm Gladwell), Ender series (Orson Scott Card), Cosmos (Carl Sagan), the good classics (like 100 Years of Solitude). I try to alternate between fiction and non.

Films: I enjoy documentaries (especially those with 'BBC' and 'Earth' in their title), but love clever films like Tarantino, Aronofsky, and Guy Ritchie.

Music: Radiohead; Daft Punk; The Tragically Hip; City and Colour; Joel Plaskett; Rise Against; Iron & Wine, Jose Gonzales.

Food: Japanese; Ethiopian; Indian; Chinese (real, not Westernised). I am mostly vegetarian, but you may call me an 'opportunivore'.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends (my surrogate family). Chopsticks. My backpack. The internet. A good book. Puns.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How lucky we Westerners are — we have won the lottery in life. But where's the gratitude, the overwhelming contentment? We perceive many things to be our right, but in fact they are a privilege. This includes education, travel, even hobbies.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking with friends, or listening to live music in Freo. Catching up on Skype or Flickr. If I'm lucky I'm in a hostel with inspiring new friends, or lying awake in a tent under the stars.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I collect overpriced stubby-holders; and have acquired a scrapbook of public toilet receipts from developing countries.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–31
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think we can learn from each other, and would like to join me on an adventure.
You watch TED, know what DSLR stands for, feel connected with natural places, live sustainably, enjoy maple syrup, or want to visit obscure places like Ethiopia, Patagonia, or PNG.
Our ratings are really high for 'match'. Or 'enemy'. Both situations could be fun!
