Passionate about creativity in all it's forms and love nothing better than encouraging the same passion in others. I'm often busy with some art project or creative shenanigan as I have a solid awesome group of creative friends and have a hard time saying no to a good creative idea especially if it makes me laugh.
I'm also more than a bit of a geek and love science, psychology, user interface design, brand identity, typography, medical illustration, game mechanics, etc.
I'm an active person, a passionate cyclist, and can often be found dancing unabashed to whatever new favorite album is playing in my headphones.

Drink: water usually with a spritz of lime, Four Barrel coffee, chai tea (spicy not sweet), dirty chai, genmaicha, yerba mate, earl gray tea, PG Tips, ginger beer. On the alcohol side I tend to drink for the taste so go for more high end like Belgian beers, whiskey preferably rye (love High West Double Rye) or bourbon either neat or in a whiskey mule with fresh brûléed ginger or the standby presbyterian cocktail. Also love gin either with tonic or in a pegu club cocktail (great with Ransom Old Tom Barrel Aged Gin); also I make a mean yerbe mate mojito, and a fascinating Earl Gray Genever Martini which admittedly isn't everyone's cup of tea.
Also, if you enjoy contributing and being involved in strange art projects or other creative shenanigans, as I seem to accidentally say yes to group art projects and other forms of public tomfoolery all the time. If you hang out with me for any length of time you will likely get swept up in some of the creative ridiculousness that pervades my life.
I should note as well that as I am a passionate cyclist my bicycle is my preferred form of transportation. Whenever, I have to leave my bike at home—like when I go on dates with non-cyclists—I feel a part of me is missing.
