Why is the first question here the hardest?
I'm happiest when I've got a lot going on. I have a strong sense of
self, am very independent, strive to be charitable and kind, have a
great knack for making others laugh, and just like who I am. I love
exploring and learning, whether it's reading a new book,
backpacking in a new country, or debating the meaning of life over
coffee or drinks.
What I’m doing with my life
I just finished a year-long sabbatical this summer, and am starting a new career(s).
I keep pretty busy: volunteering (Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers Big Sisters), running and biking, travel near and far, salsa lessons, etc.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at talking about most anything. I've done enough
things that it's easy to connect with anyone. I'm also good at
making people laugh. I'm a pretty happy person, and once did
amateur night at Acme Comedy Club.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, in good shape, and I look like I'm a fun time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Lost In Translation, indie films at the Uptown / Lagoon
Books: geeky/wonky stuff like Freakanomics, The Tipping Point, etc.
Funny stuff like David Sedaris.
Music: my last two concerts were Rural Alberta Advantage and
Dropkick Murphys. I'm all over the map.
Food: yes. I like food. I'm a horrible cook, but I enjoy trying new
The six things I could never do without
(Note to self: come up with three more things for this list.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. I can be a bit spastic.
I also wonder why people jump through the hoop of "liking" me, but
doing it secretly through A-List. Grow a pair and message me
already. Sixth grade was a few years ago, eh?
On a typical Friday night I am
Art crawls, live music, sporting events, leisurely happy hours on
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once shaved my head for charity. I once dressed in a bear costume
because someone had a bear costume. I ran for city council 12 years
ago because it only cost $50 to do so. Well, these are my sober
private confessions, at least for now.
You should message me if
You're prepared to have beer shoot out of your nose at happy
hour.... or, instead, maybe I'll just try to time my jokes so
you're not mid-sip.
Seriously, I'd love to hear back if you're authentic, not big into
material things, like being active, have an independent streak, and
still growing and learning.
