Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a sarcastic, intelligent and active person who loves mountain
biking, video games, gardening, movies, theatre and books (comic or
otherwise). I'm looking for someone to challenge me, introduce me
to something new or share adventures with!
I enjoy traveling to other countries and getting to really see how
the people live. It may not be as comfortable as a luxury resort,
but you get so many excellent stories when backpacking between
sketchy hostels in new and interesting places :)
- I have a policy of not saying no to new experiences.
- I live in a big old house that I renovate with periodic
- I have a wonderful Wookiee of a dog named Gordon.
- I outsource my fashion decisions.
- I love to garden, but I only grow cash crops.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write medical software during the week, and on weekends I try to
get out on a seasonally appropriate recreational device.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Travel. I enjoy myself when the trip goes well, and I bring back
amusing stories of my misfortunes when things go off the rails :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard! Unless I've recently shaved: then they remark about my
LACK of beard :) There is something very satisfying about learning
how to such a manly thing in an effective way.
Once I figured out the geektastic world of shaving included german
engineered stainless steel safety razors, badger hair brushes and
english lavendar shaving soap I was hooked! Now I've become a
silent catty critic of the shave quality of every man I interact
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favourite book was Moby Dick, but sadly University beat my love
of reading out of me. I am a avid reader of online articles and I
am the sort of dinosaur that still gets the paper
Now that I can get my comics in trade format, I'm enjoying a
renaissance of reading comics. Not just indies like The Losers or
Powers, but also some of the excellent re-imaginings of classic
characters like Superman and Batman. Favourite current comic book
is Umbrella Academy.
My favourite movies are Wages of Fear, Wild Zero, Black Dynamite,
Battle Royale ... although I can talk your ear off about any crazy
My favourite band is They Might be Giants, although I'll listen to
anything that is fun or soulful ... I love my Patsy Cline...
My favourite food is ... pretty much everything. Nothing worse than
a picky eater!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friends / family
Trails: both dirt or snowpacked
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Insane new projects around my house. I dug a trench around my
entire basement, buried weeping tile, mixed concrete, built a
subfloor and installed flooring ... because it seemed like fun, and
I hate getting my socks wet.
My socks are dry now, although oddly enough I rarely wear them in
the summer anyway :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Biking or boarding if a friend is available, or sitting on my deck
with a beer, my computer and my dog if it's a lazy night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cried when Spock died, then again when the Enterprise blew up
(the first time)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you like genre films, mountain biking,
curling or snowboarding ... and especially if you have a soft spot
in your heart for fluffy wookiee dogs.
