My self-summary
I take life like improv. Never say no. If you are looking for someone who will listen and go through with your crazy ideas, it's me.

I grew up abroad, but I have called Chicago home for 14 years and still loving it. Outside of work, I enjoy bridge, board games, brewing, cooking, and piano. I do a lot of weekend getaways and a few longer trips. I tend to focus on nature, food, and museums.

I value open-mindedness and believe everything has two sides.

I do pub trivia weekly and we have a pretty kick-ass team.

EPL (Arsenal) and NHL (Leafs, then Blackhawks) fan. I am a swimmer and a tennis player. I curled in high school and I ski.

Last travel destination: Snowmass
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work in finance where I try to make the right decision slightly more often than not.

Trying all the poutine and mac n cheese I can get my hands on.

Making inappropriate comments at the appropriate times.
I’m really good at
Directions and orientations.
Card games, any games really.
Conjuring 9 tricks out of nowhere. (Your grandma might get the joke)
Playing devil's advocate.
Making up "fun facts" and convincing you that it's true.
The first things people usually notice about me
My dark sense of humour, no-BS attitude and that I always have a story to share.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favourite movies: Gladiator, The Departed, Terminator... any form of really good or hilariously bad action/sci-fi move. I also enjoy comedies (think Zombieland, Office Space, This is Spinal Tap). Last movie: Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Favourite shows: Community, Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, True Detective, Archer, South Park, Mozart in the Jungle, and working on The Wire. Top Chef and Food network in general.

Music: I enjoy classical music, the symphony, opera and musicals. Chopin, Beethoven, and Wagner are my favourites. I recently got a piano and have been trying to get back into it. Bonus point if you are a musician too. Last concert: Evgeny Kissin @ CSO

Favourite books: A Song of Ice and Fire, legend of the condor heroes series; The Economist; I read mostly non-fiction these days. Gladwell and Kahneman I enjoyed. Let me know if you have a favourite book you think I should read. Last Read: Ringworld.

Favourite Food: I love food. I am an adventurous eater, so I'll eat just about anything. I will take any suggestions of places to try or be your dinner buddy for the next restaurant you want to try. I also love cooking for a large crowd; ask me what I have attempted. Last Restaurant: Cindy's Bar
The six things I could never do without
Family and Friends
A bed to my liking
My Piano
Bridge (the card game)
Spacious kitchen with a gas stove
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If the car in front of me is not signalling, is it because it's going straight or because the asshole is too lazy to signal?
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying the good company of my friends.

Jamming on my piano.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was in a movie when I was 10.
You should message me if
you are intelligent and full of character.
