Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have an open mind, and will pretty much try anything once. I like
the mindset "You will regret the things you didn't do, not the
things you did".
I tend to be very driven, and accomplish what I set out to do.
Currently, I am part way through the C25K program. I started this
somewhat as a summer project, and because I wanted to be able to
run 5k. No real reason other than that. Now that I've started, I
I tend to have a random fact for most situations and topics. I love
to learn and actually read journals and periodicals for fun. With
that said, I also love a cold beer during a hot evening with good
company, and the occasional wild party. Believe me, I have stories.
I didn't get the nickname "Beer Necessities" for nothing! With a
name like that, you gotta know there is a story attached.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I'm working and living in Toronto. I was doing the
commute for the past 7 months, but just in November moved to
Toronto. I work at a job that I love, that lets me have the life
style I enjoy ( all about that work / life balance), with the
hobbies I enjoy.
There is nothing nicer than being able to walk home from work, stop
at the market for some fresh veggies / meats, and be able to put
together a nice meal while dancing to electro-swing. All I need is
you to join ;P
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I think I'm more of a "Jack of all Trades" sort of person. I'm a
good programmer and problem solver, and an amateur musician. I can
march in a formation playing, design a power subsystem, and cook a
fantastic meal. Not all at the same time mind you! though that
would be rather impressive!
I am very good at having a random fact about most situations,
strangely enough. Excellent memory helps with this. Be forewarned,
what ever you tell me will be remembered, even if you don't want me
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I stand out in that I will talk right up to someone new and
introduce myself. I am not shy at all about meeting new people.
I've been told that I have a really nice voice to listen to, that's
it's very calming and reassuring. When in conversation, I have been
told that I don't break eye contact at all. Personally, I have
never noticed this. Hopefully, it doesn't come across too creepy.
If are first few conversations seem almost like an interrogation,
sorry, my bad. It's not actually meant like that, I just ask many
directed questions to new people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm always up for book recommendations. I tend to read a lot of
fantasy, most recently I re-read the Mistborn trilogy. I also
picked up "Guns, Germs, and Steel". It's an interesting take on
human development around the world. Other works of fiction I have
read and very much enjoyed are:
Dune, The Lord of the Rings, The Wheel of Time Series, Dracula,
Sword of Truth Series.
I used to visit reddit a lot, but somehow kicked that habit this
summer. I'm worried that if I find a good sub-reddit I'll get
For movies, my short list of favourites are: Movies by Darren
Aronofsky (i enjoyed Black Swan, though prefer his earlier work
more, specifically The Fountain), The Matrix, Braveheart, Hannibal.
This is not an exhaustive list. Anything with a great sound track,
and plot development works for me. I also love "Cloudy with a
Chance of Meatballs". =D
I don't watch very much TV, but my favourites have been: Battlestar
Galactica, Doctor Who, Fringe, and the Big Bang Theory.
Musically, I am very much all over the place. My play list can go
anywhere from the stunning strings of the Kronos Quartet, to up
beat high energy top 40's. I have a soft spot of anything big band
(due to how much I love playing big band music), and I'm a closet
metal head. Right now I've been in an Electro-Swing binge.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Even though I don't commute to work anymore, my #1 has to be noise
isolating head phones. I love being in my own little world when
Challenging and insightful conversation. (Big one here. I need
stimulating conversation with a person who will not just tell me
I'm wrong, but why. If you have an opinion on anything, please
apply! I will probably challenge you if we disagree, so don't back
down! :P )
An interesting problem to solve.
A cold pint with good friends
My laptop and internet connection.
A band to play with! I can't do the march band as often anymore, so
am having some serious band withdrawal symptoms. If you know of any
in the area looking for a trombone please let me know!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My run or swim tomorrow, or my any of my projects (work or
personal). I tinker a lot, and have a design that I've been on for
roughly 4 months now. I'm always "just one more late night" away
from it being ready to send to manufacturing. Eventually, I will be
done, it will be sent off, and I will have a (hopefully) working
prototype to play with. This design has consumed far too much of my
thought time, I pretty much have to get it done soon!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no such thing as a "Typical" any night. Today I got lost
in the PATH for an hour. Went down there because I had never been.
Tomorrow, or next Friday who knows? I will make sure what ever it
is, it's awesome!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
While I'm not shy in person, online dating intimidates the hell out
of me! I'll look at someone's profile many times before I come up
with some crappy opening. I find the medium allows for much early
judgement and preconception that it makes introductions more
difficult than they would be in person. Sadly though, it does offer
the most number of chances to speak to someone new.
