My self-summary
An acadian in a franco-Ontarian and Quebec environment.
I go about every situation with irreverence.
There's a very high chance that I'll burst into song lyrics or movie quotes in the middle of conversations.

I’m past patiently waitin’ / I’m passionately / Smashin’ every expectation / Every action’s an act of creation!
What I’m doing with my life
Pretty much all academia.

Also listening to Hamilton non-stop.

I'm working on my PhD in political science at the University of Ottawa. I'm researching human rights for foreign domestic workers in East Asia and the intersection of care work and migration.
I’m really good at
Being a hand-talker, remembering random factoids about irrelevant things, and slipping into my French accent after a few drinks.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height and tattoos. I'm pretty easy to spot in a crowd. Either that or people hear me first; gotta love that booming acadian voice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Here are some.

So, books. Here we go:
The first book I ever read was the Count of Monte Cristo. Fun fact, I used to hate reading. Then my old man pretty much forced me to read one of his favourite books (Cristo), and I haven't looked back since. Then came my old of fantasy, especially Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Sandman is one of my top picks for literature.
I used to be that pretentious person that read Bukowski unironically.
And all of those academic texts I pretend to have read.

I'm a big fan of Spaghetti Westerns, especially Once Upon a Time in the West.
Dark satire is one of my favourite genres. I'd argue that Dr Strangelove and Life of Brian are the best dark comedy / satire films out there.
There's also Princess Bride; Pan's Labyrinth; There Will Be Blood; Blade Runner; Amadeus; American Psycho; Godfather (I even like the third one); Life if Beautiful; C.R.A.Z.Y.; Wrath of Khan

Shows: Game of Thrones, Rome, Deep Space Nine (better than TNG, and I love Picard), Avatar: The Last Airbender, M*A*S*H, Columbo; Classic Doctor Who

Music: The Black Keys; A Tribe Called Red; Leonard Cohen; Jimi Hendrix; Tom Waits; Stromae; Pink Floyd; Coeur de pirate; Dionysos; Gorillaz; Zeppelin.
As for non-Hamilton musicals, my two tops are Les Mis and Jesus Christ Superstar.
Six things I could never do without
Great music, good friends, engaging conversation about nothing and anything, some open water, and a fifth and sixth thing that sound deep and meaningful.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Writing grant applications. Help.
On a typical Friday night I am
I go from not-very-mild mannered academic to an even less mannered academic with friends out on the town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to be terrified of the dark. I'd wrap my blanket around my feet so nothing would grab them.
You should message me if
You wanna tell me what you want / what you really really want
The two of us
