Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Calgarian, however I was born and raised in Australia
(I have dual citizenship
which is awesome!). I'm addicted to music
, and of course I have a
great interest in technology
and the internet
Due to being an immigrant I really enjoy traveling as much as I
can. So far I've been to 7 or 8 countries (and quite a few states
in the US. My favourite being California) and plan to go to many
more. I love learning other customs and seeing parts of the country
that isn't on a guided tour; generally when put on a guided tour, I
will leave the group and get lost. It's far more enjoyable in my
I love the mountains and try to get out to Canmore or Banff as much
as possible. I really like hiking, biking and swimming (although
it's a bit cold outside to go swimming in any of the lakes out in
the mountains until like mid-July). I look forward to the spring
and summer because it allows me to get out and shoot photos and
video in places I wouldn't be able to reach due to snow and super
cold weather. Plus we live in such a beautiful place, it is a shame
not to get out there!
I try to swim as much as possible to stay in shape and I enjoy
dressing up to visit fancy restaurants once in a while. Calgary has
been getting some really nice places recently.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I'm taking a break from the Radio, Television and
Broadcast News program at SAIT with a specialization in television
production, well on my way to starting an awesome career working
for HBO (I wish)
I'm about to start volunteering for an animal shelter in town so I
can walk, feed, and pet puppies and kittens!
I also recently started a YouTube channel dedicated to teaching
common misunderstandings in science. I'm really excited about it
and I'm hoping to make one video every week :)
Also, I'm learning to knit. (Very slowly; definitely much harder
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Capturing pretty images and understanding how light works in
certain conditions to make people look even more pretty than they
- Quickly learning new things that are quite technical by just
messing around and trying things out myself
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The birthmark that looks like my mother dropped me
Also, sarcasm/dry humour and the camera equipment that is usually
on my person all the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Far too many to list of all, but I'll list a few:
Books: I'm an epic(that's my one use of this word for the year)
book reader, but I'll just leave it at the most recent ones for a
- Snow Crash
- The Diamond
by Neal Stephenson (Great book, AWFUL ENDING *cry*)
- Anansi Boys
by Neil Gaiman (current)
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo/Plays with Fire/Kicked the Hornet's
by Stieg Larsson
Movies: I'm really into cinematography, so I have a very broad
range of movies I like so it would be near impossible to list them
in my free time. Here are some:
- Taxi Driver
(if asked for my all time favourite, this is it)
Lord of the Rings
(any and all really, I love Terry Gilliam)
- Inglourious Basterds
I really love Tarantino.
This is what I'm watching right now:
- Game of
I try to keep up on new shows as much as possible given it's kind
of the direction I want my career to go.
Music: Oh God. Let's just say I have a lot of music from pretty
much every genre. I'm currently trying to get into more indie music
that people have suggested to me. Please give me some
- Flight of the
I really love Vietnamese and Argentinian foods. The only thing I
don't really like is mushrooms.
I also love beer and wine when I have time to relax
Also, I swear I'm not a hipster. I SWEAR!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Bears, beets, Battlestar Galactica.
Oh wait, *ahem*
- Something to communicate with (phone, laptop, etc.)
- Pen/Paper for writing ideas down or sketching
- The support of my family
- My cane
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I also spend a significant amount of time thinking about
photography/cinematography opportunities mostly. I also think a lot
about recent scientific advancements and politics. It's really
important to me that the world improve in my lifetime and I'd love
to have a hand in helping to do something. I'll likely do some
documentaries as a submission to helping people understand what
people go through in places most people have never heard of, let
alone been to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends jamming, drinking, and screwing around. Usually
end up watching movies/tv, playing games, or doing homework to free
my weekend up.
So basically I don't have a typical Friday. I would love to have
someone to take somewhere new or to try something different though.
I'm always open to trying new things!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once cheated on a Scantron quiz in Science in grade 8 when the
teacher left the master in plain view. OH THE GUILT
Also, when I was younger I used to ride horses (English) and
gymnastics (tumbling). I love both of those things but haven't done
them in a long time.

If you think I'm interesting and we would get along!
Basically my only limitation is what my body can handle due to my
80 year old back. Due to surgery that I received, I have chronic
back pain and walk with a cane and take pain medications (ie.
Morphine). I try to hide my injury as much as possible otherwise
and try to keep active.
So yeah, I can't run marathons, but I'm happy to do an easy hike or
go for a road trip/camping. I try to get out and take photos as
much as possible despite my injury and I'd love to do photowalks
with someone else!
