I've spent the past several years criss crossing around the country for graduate school, and now find myself in MTL. I just started my PhD at Concordia in an interdisciplinary program. My work primarily involves the study of digital games,hacking and contemporary art. Often the point where these intersect.
Though being cisMale, I'm an ally to all genders, and have been called a good feminist on many occasions. I don't say this to score points, I say this because I think it's an important thing to be.
I make art, I curate, I study, I teach, I play.
I'm pretty excited about living in Montreal, it being the third Canadian city I've lived in in the past 3 years. Haven't spent a great deal of time here before, but the arts and culture of the city seem to be pretty amazing, and I look forward to taking it all in. When I'm not shut in researching or writing that is.
I'm attracted most to people with a passion to make things. That could be writing, music, or whatever else it is you do. As long as you're passionate and dedicated to it, I'll appreciate it.. I'll even encourage it!
I'm not one for the 9-5 suburban life, and prefer to chart my own way through life rather than follow prescribed routes. I never used to be this way, but once I did, I can safely say that I've never been happier. I play well with others,and believe in the power of community. Sharing in our successes is always infinitely more satisfying than celebrating one's own.
Also, being new to MTL I feel it needs to be said. I don't speak french. And I kind of feel like an a$$hole for not learning any before I moved. Though I'm committed to learning it!!
