Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in the country north of the city, and moved to Etobicoke
about a year ago. I love living in the city but it's a far cry from
what I'm used to!
Music is my life in a very non-literal sense.
Family and friends are very important to me - a strong network of
support can make a huge difference in a person's life, and I'm
lucky to have the ones I have.
I make far too many lame jokes for my own good, but at least I'm
generally self-aware enough to know they're awful (though sometimes
it's not quite so obvious until after I've made the joke).
Oh and one time I correctly guessed the answer to Final Jeopardy
just from the category.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I finished university at Guelph a few years ago with a Bachelor's
in Psychology (and then went back for another year). Now I work for
a staffing company in Etobicoke. Basically my job is to find people
jobs. It's rewarding work, and I work with a great group of people,
and it's just up the street from home, so I'm very happy with
When I'm not at work, I like to spend my time playing music. I play
guitar and bass guitar, and have dabbled on other instruments in
the past. I'm currently working on figuring out how to play the
mandolin, and I'd love to pick up the violin/viola one day too. Or
the cello! I played French Horn in high school and would love the
opportunity to pick it up again. I like to sing, but I'm dreadful
at it. Alas.
I also enjoy reading, going out for walks, bicycling (weather
permitting), spending time with friends, playing games of any and
all sorts (board, video, card, word), basically anything and
everything, especially with good company.
I really enjoy travelling, although it's something I don't get to
do as often as I would like - real life has a nasty habit of
getting in the way. Camping is another favourite as well. It's nice
to get away when you can. I ventured to the west coast last year
and I'm hoping to hit the east coast sometime soon. Otherwise, I'd
love to see Europe and Australia one day. My friends and I have
decided that next summer our goal is to get a photograph of
ourselves in all five of the Great Lakes.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to think I'm pretty good at music. I've been playing guitar
for about 15 years and bass guitar for about 10.
I seem to have a talent for wordplay and I have a bit of a knack
for remembering utterly useless pieces of trivia.
If it were an Olympic sport, I could probably win a gold medal in
putting my phone down somewhere and forgetting where it is five
I enjoy cooking and I'm pretty good at following a recipe.
I'm generally pretty good at picking up new things, and I'm
(almost) always up for trying something I've never tried before.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently I have a loud laugh. If you're in the same house as me
but a different room, that's probably the first thing you'd notice

Currently watching The Wire.
I'll pretty much watch any movie so long as it isn't over-the-top
gory and violent, for reasons explained in the "Most Private Thing
I'm Willing To Admit" section. I like to watch so-bad-it's-good
movies and make snarky comments. If you have any recommendations,
let me know!
I like to read, but there isn't really a clear thread between what
I read. Mostly Sci-Fi and Fantasy lately I suppose, but anything is
fair game. Currently I'm reading Moby Dick, and a P.G. Wodehouse
I listen to lots of music. The full list is really long, but
generally speaking I'm into rock music - my collection includes
stuff from Frank Zappa to Iron Maiden to Green Day to The
Decemberists. I'm always open to checking out something new
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- My iPod
- My computer
- Warm, sunny weather for walking/cycling
- Family and Friends
- The basic necessities of life
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make whatever the last thing someone said to me into some
kind of lame pun.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'd like to say I'm out gallivanting about with friends, but more
often than not Friday evenings are spent at home, be it watching
DVDs/Netflix, playing music, or just unwinding from the work
My IDEAL Friday night would involve dinner with friends, good
company, good food and drink and good conversation.

I tend to faint at the sight of blood. This has led to a number of
awkward/hilarious stories that I enjoy sharing with people. Remind
me to tell you one sometime - they're usually pretty good.
For example, that time I passed out while I was sitting in the
front row of my class in the sixth grade, or the time I passed out
at the movies and they called the paramedics.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You know where to find the best microbreweries/pubs, coffee shops
or bookstores in town
- You want to visit one of the above, or just go for a wander
around downtown or cycle along the lakeshore
- You're looking for someone to wax philosophical with about life,
the universe, and everything (or more important matters like if
anybody in human history has ever actually finished a thing of
