Who dosen't love ice hockey and maple syrup?
I grew up in the middle of the Canadian Rocky Mountains playing ice
hockey and skiing during the endless winter. After I finished
school, I decided to go on a short adventure to the southern United
States where the summers are long, hot and humid, and the fishing
is top-notch. Several years later I left the South with a pair of
post-grad degrees and moved north to Michigan in an attempt to
slowly re-acclimatize to Canadian winters. Eventually, I realized
northern winters are cold...brrr! I wanted to find somewhere a bit
warmer, but not too warm, so I decided to try out Australia. The
winters here are definitely warmer, but the houses sure seem to
have been designed to maximize the coldness in winter!
During my travels, I’ve developed an inordinate fondnesss for
playing ultimate Frisbee, bushwalking and getting together with
friends to play board games and socialize. Or is it socialise here?
I'm still trying to figure out Australian English and the hatred of
zed's in the middle of words and r's at the end of words (e.g beah,
watah, showah, etc.)...
Life in Australia thus far has been a blast and I’m hoping to find
a nice Australian girl to settle down with here, or perhaps to join
me on new adventures somewhere else.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an ecologist and spend my days trying to figure out how to slow
the spread of invasive species that like to eat tasty
I'm also exploiting my career using it to go on a slow motion trip
around the world. If things go as planned, I should finish my first
complete trip around the world sometime in 2014. It will be a LOT
slower than Jules Verne, but still, it will be neat to be able to
say I did it!
I’m really good at

I'm currently reading Twilight in the Desert which discusses the
future of oil in Saudi Arabia. I recently devoured The Millennium
Series (e.g. Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). The series was a lot of
fun to read! I also enjoy reading most books by Bryce Courtenay and
Recent favorites are: True Grit, The Reader, and The King's Speech.
My all time favorites are the original Star Wars movies. I also
enjoy a lot of movies by Pedro Almodovar. They are generally pretty
quirky and funny.
Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Northern
