Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(For those who are asking - yes, I can read, write and speak in the
languages listed on the right, but they are not an indication of my
ethnicity or heritage)
The three strongest interests that I have are:
Religion: I have studied several religions on an academic level,
including Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and Baha'ism to name a few. I
love learning about how various faiths have developed over time and
the roles they have played in the development of cultures and
traditions. My own faith is also extremely important to me and I
was blessed with the opportunity to study Christian theology in
Politics: I know it is probably the least interesting subject for
most people, but it is a passion of mine that I have had for most
of my life. I currently work in politics and it gives me the
ability to initiate positive change in my community, but also
provides me with the opportunity to help my community best reflect
the biblical values of love, compassion and morality. The saying
"be the change you wish to see in the world" is definitely
Culture: I love culture - all culture! I have studied seven
languages on an academic level and I have had the opportunity to
travel throughout Canada, the US, Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe.
I won't lie; I love an all-inclusive vacation, but I especially
love site-seeing and visiting places of historical
I might come across as serious or intense based on what you have
just read, but I am really just a normal guy who is looking for
someone to share his faith and his interests with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life is pretty busy. I work in politics as a policy and
communications adviser, both on the municipal and provincial
levels. I am also a consultant that provides PR, crisis management,
marketing and communications services to elected public officials
and civic organizations.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Connecting with people, especially people from different ethnic,
religious or cultural backgrounds. I have always enjoyed listening
to people and learning from them. Walking away from a meeting or a
conversation with a new perspective or a new understanding of life
or people in general is an extremely precious gift that I wouldn't
trade for the world.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I could never do without my family, my God (and my faith in Him),
my friends, my laptop (with the internet) and shisha.
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 how we as humans are connected
on various cultural, linguistic, ethnic, racial, and genetic
I also spend a lot of time thinking about how I am going to make an
impact on this world during my life. I think my greatest fear is to
die an old man without having made a difference somewhere or
somehow. With our actions, each one of us has the potential to turn
someone's life around. For this reason, I believe that everyday
kindness should always be a top priority in life. Too often we
underestimate the power of a smile, a listening ear, a kind word,
an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring - all of which
have the ability to make someone's life a whole lot brighter.
