Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I keep laughing at the personality indicator. It is saying I'm
quite Artsy and Scientific (which is true since I've worked in both
fields) Adventurous is also true.... looking back, I've done some
crazy things in my youth like trying to kayak across Canada (almost
died twice and failed miserably! But had a FANTASTIC time)
I still like an adventure, but now it is more like getting lost in
a strange, new city instead of the barrens of northern
The one trait that concerns me is I'm very sloppy?! no idea what
this means? (also wondering if they are looking at the state of my
house during the renos via my web cam....lol But in reality my work
usually entails a lot of clean detail orientated work. This being
art, writing, or installation work.
But my bed making in the morning could be considered sloppy.... ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
with the job format, they only give you one catagory to choose
from. Yes I have worked as an artist and was highly successful as I
fell into a job producing art for a multi national corporation.
friends would introduce me as an artist and my response was "well I
play an artist on tv.... "
I actually have a double major in Bio and Geo with science and
nature being my first true loves. But I come from a highly
intelligent and creative family full of talent, so the art was
always something I did in private.
I remember the first year I made a tonne of money as an artist and
getting very upset that the accountant was putting "artist" on my
tax forms.... "I'm not an artist! I'm a science major!"
He looked at me and then at my papers.... "well, these papers and
the 80 grand you made with art say something else...."
I also have various diplomas and certifications. some notable ones
are I'm a massage practitioner, trained as a Wilderness Emergency
Med Tech, have been a first aid instructor for 20+ years, Taught
rock climbing for 8 years, and have the first 2 years of my CGA
(actually did that as a dare but liked the courses and could use
the skills on other projects)
I have been slowly leaving my old job to start work on a project
for myself. Things are falling into place with the right team
members and having enough money set aside to allow me to take the
time to get this project off the ground. It is an exciting time but
will allow me to work for myself and travel for fun. The only thing
that concerns me is my Mom actually thinks its a great idea... she
usually shoots holes in everything as my personal devils advocate.
So having her get excited and think I'd be great at this.... (yes I
did look to see if she had been replaced with an alien clone)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making other people feel comfortable and be able to laugh.
seeing the humour in most situations
being able to make the driest lecture material interesting and
finding solutions to problems and doing it in a way that saves
money. Plumber! pfffttt! we just need a really BIG flame....
surprisingly my solutions work and rarely burn things down.
taking the road less traveled and finding it is a profitable
forgetting about capitalizing words, and just writing what pops
into my head. (this resulted in a 1/2 page run on sentence in grade
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my hair and smile and my odd sense of humour
If in a crowd, people have been able to locate me by my laugh. (I
can be loud)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I was brought up by my mom and i would often read her cast off
books. I am very grateful my mom was a veracious science fiction
reader and have been exposed to several of the classic writers in
the genre. Arthur C Clark, Asimov, jueles Vern, Tollkin, and a wave
of new writers.... Still to this date she will pop a book into my
bag when I stop over for dinner.
it also helps that she was a librarian and knows books....
I grew up watching Sci fi, mostly from my moms choice of programs
and grew to love them and the opening of my mental horizons. I will
still check in with mom on what new programs are worth watching
since I don't have a tv and don't have the time to watch
everything... so I will download some of her suggestions and she is
usually right. (advantage of smart parents )
music.... that is a universe all onto itself. I love music but will
often never pick my own but will go out with friends and catch what
they are currently listening to and finding out if its something I
like or not.... a road trip is a great way for an album to sink in.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
having a creative outlet
a comfortable pillow (I can sleep on the ground but my head NEEDS a
seasonal fresh fruit (think I might be part bear the way I will
attack a blueberry bush)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about things that make me laugh. Odd
thoughts pop into my head quite often and when I write them down,
people apparently find them funny.
I also think about various work issues that I have or an idea that
is just not coming. Going for a walk along the lake or the long car
ride home will usually help to sort out an idea and allow me to
clear away the chaff and leave that kernel of an idea.
I am lighthearted and love to laugh and make others laugh, but I do
spend a lot of time dealing with more serious issues and trying to
find solutions for friends and their problems. I like to help
instead of letting them run in circles
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
that is a hard one since I will usually tell anyone anything they
ask. Even my most embarrassing stories, I can see the humour in
them and laugh.
update: while doing several of these questions I did come up with
one embarrasing story. Years ago when I bought my first house, I
figured as an adult I needed a proper tea pot. So I went to the
store and bought a really nice Denby tea pot. I then looked and saw
a quite nice water pitcher in the same set and bought that
i had been going to a lot of friends weddings at this point too and
they kept complaining that they would get a plate or bowl or some
odd numbers in their china set and then have to pick up the rest.
it was really annoying them
So I thought.... one day I will get married... so why not pick up a
plate or two a month and then just have to do the filling in for
the registry. This seemed to be a brilliant plan at the time and
picked my pattern and every month spent $50 to $100 to pick up some
pieces. this worked out quite well until 18 months later my set was
discontinued and I wasn't even close to getting married.... so had
to quickly pick up the rest of the set.
so for quite some time I have a complete china set of 10 place
settings. I get to use the set maybe once a year but the pasta
bowls..... they are a staple and use all the time. lol
so a bit embarrassing but I find quite amusing too
pick a question and I will answer it.
You should message me if

You should message me if you are funny, smart and have a smile that
can light up a room. I find the brain is often the sexiest thing
about a person. If you can make me laugh and smile, I'm in trouble.
Add in a cute smile and a snort... Oh boy, game over...lol
