Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love the little things — the things that people don't notice. I'm
fascinated by how complex and interesting "boring" things can be.
Don't take them for granted.
I have a penchant for the weird, fantastic, and original. I also
have a penchant for words like "penchant".
I'm very talkative and extroverted, but my favourite people are
usually the ones who seem quiet at first. You always seem to have
more to say.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm studying graphic design and the technical process of printing.
As soon as I was exposed to the world of design, I was
My goal is to teach design, once I'm finished my education.
I'm currently working under a co-op term, doing a couple of graphic
design jobs. Getting experience in the things I love to do and the
things I want to teach (generally those are the same things)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I take pride in my ability to describe something in a way that
makes it easy to understand for everyone.
It's a useful skill to have when you're into things that have names
in other languages.
The first things people usually notice about me

I get very enthusiastic about things.
People are sometimes surprised by how passionate I can get while
talking about leeks, letters, colours, cephalopods, etc.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Type Heresy / The Ten Commandments of Typography

The Fifth Element
Micachu and the Shapes
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Squids (particularly Architeuthis)
double-story lower-case A's
Cabbage (all members of the Brassica family, really)
Karaoke (even if it's by myself in the car)
(is that seven things?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Typography and Cooking
(but not at the same time – not usually)
I've caught the letter-bug. I can't look at printed words without
exploring the curves and nuances of the letters with my eyes. I
find them endlessly interesting, and I think it's neat that they
are practically invisible to some people.
I'm always thinking about what I'm going to make next – putting
flavours together in my head. I love to imagine new dishes, whether
I make them or not.
There is no day or mood that can't be improved for me by getting in
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It changes from week to week, but I can tell you about one crazy
Friday I had recently:
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe. . . and well, you know how those kinds
of night turn out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cry a little bit at pretty much every movie I watch, even if it's
only a tiny little bit (yes, even that movie you're thinking
This happens to me with really good songs as well.
I'll also cry hard at concerts. But that isn't as private or as
unusual, is it?
I love to cry though. Feels good, man.
