I am a young professional living in Kitchener, ON. I'm a numismatist, which basically means i deal with old money. I run the paper money department at a local coin shop and I also run a consultation business on the side. I'm pretty proud of my emerging enterprise and can sometimes get carried away talking about it. Don't be mistaken - i'm not like one of those comic book nerds you would see on the simpsons. I like to think of myself as a distinguished antique specialist. (sort of like a young hansom version of those guys on antiques road show - i'm actually on a call back list to be an expert on the show!!)
I studied economics at the university of waterloo.....although I have not used my degree one bit (well, i suppose that's not entirely true....I did use the frame to block up the window in my basement apartment :P )
I like to stay active. I run a lot in the summer and enjoy putting together ad hoc games of ultimate frisbee and the like. In the winter i'm confined to my weights in the basement, but that works too - you'd be surprised how much stress can be unloaded on a punching bag.
I like to dance. I've been told i'm good at it, but i'm still holding out for some solid evidence. I can also be convinced to sing a song or two on the karaoke stage.
Music wise, i'm really into classic rock, 90's rock, ska, eighties pop, and BNL for some reason (i can do a mean impression of Steven Page :P)
I also love to watch documentaries. Learning is a passion of mine, but reading isn't....so i watch a lot of documentaries. Nature doc's really do it for me, but i'll settle for something historical or social. If we end up getting to know each other, fair warning, i'll have you watch many documentaries with me :)
The qualities i'm looking for in a girl are as follows; caring, loyal, good sense of humour, understanding.....oh, and i suppose I find slightly nerdy girls kind of hot.....just thought i'd put that out there. If you have seen the following movies and can discuss them on many levels, it's a plus.....Happy Gilmore, Dumb and Dumber, Grandma's Boy, Super Troopers, Commando, and Super Bad.
If i sound like the kind of guy you would like to meet, drop me a line.
