Hi, you can call me Ted. When I was young, I was both the class
nerd and the accidental version of the class clown rolled into one
-- but now I'd like to think I've grown into a slightly larger
version of the same thing, having retained the same zest for life
with a wacky, witty sense of humour. Perhaps I've become a
variation on one of my favourite geeky TV characters (he's a
computer forensics expert - bonus points for guessing his
I love both movies and music - I couldn't live without either one.
I play the guitar. I have a passion for foreign languages and for
learning in general. Cultural variation and personality differences
are things about people I find fascinating. That's why I want to
work with people, in whatever job I'm doing. I've always been
curious about how people think and why they do the things they do.
I'm always interested in learning something new, trying to explore
life's other opportunities.
I also enjoy art, history, and sitting down with a good book. I'm
an engaging conversationalist, but I'm also just a regular guy who
knows how to enjoy having a good time whatever I might be doing,
and wherever I happen to be.
I'm just as much at home exploring an art gallery or a museum
exhibit as I am taking a walk in the park. I enjoy a sense of
adventure, and can have fun whatever I'm doing - whether it be
walking down city streets, or hiking the Trans-Canada trail.
What I’m doing with my life
After I did my undergrad degree in psych, I decided I wanted to do
something different, so now I'm studying auto mechanics, thinking
about opening my own shop one day. I'm also trying my hand as a
photographer, slowly honing my craft with the intention of turning
my passion into a career.
Right now, I'm working toward my mechanic's licence. I'm also
hoping I could explore the possibility of doing part-time
photojournalism, as it would help me feed my appetite for travel.
I’m really good at
Languages, photography, swimming, and trivia games.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm very gregarious, outgoing, friendly, and talkative. I can
be reserved when the situation calls for it. However, I enjoy life,
and am enthusiastic about finding someone who can enjoy it with me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A sampler of each of these:
Air Force One
Tomorrow Never Dies
Man on the Moon
The Back to the Future Trilogy
The Tragically Hip
Many other diverse musical tastes, including classical and
Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, etc. (I love sushi).
Middle Eastern/European cuisine (Morrocan, Italian).
North American Food (a good burger is always welcome).
Traditional Jewish cuisine.
(I'll try almost anything once).
The six things I could never do without
A pen and a notebook
An endless supply of cucumber
Water (in whatever form) (I'm a cancer)
A car (doesn`t matter what it is, so long as it moves).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Travelling the world. What the future may hold. Where I'll be in
5-10 years. Maybe somplace like Japan, South Korea, or South
America (perhaps teaching English, or helping build houses). Taking
a job as a bush pilot. Taking a road trip across the continent on a
bike or in car, or even walking (like Forrest Gump did). Swimming
the English Channel.
Stuff like that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Pondering the mysteries of life, watching a movie, or enjoying a
good meal with friends or family.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I dream about doing the impossible -- but isn't having a wild
imagination a part of what makes life exiciting?
You should message me if
You would have fun getting off a plane in a new country, with no
itinerary. Or if you would enjoy the challenge of a hike with
nothing more than a map, a compass, and your own two feet.
