What I’m doing with my life
After an exciting tour through academia I moved to Waterloo to start what seems to be a pretty fun career. When I'm not working I'm meeting with friends, watching films, reading, running/biking/swimming/squash, or just generally on the lookout for new adventures. I also love to travel and am always thinking about where I'll go next.
I’m really good at
I've picked up a few skills here and there, but
a.) I really love solving mysteries/puzzles/trivia.
b.) I'm getting to be good at cooking (though I'd love for more judges).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd say the best way to find that out is to meet me in person (in other words, I really don't quite know).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Food: Nearly everything. However if I had to pick one thing, I don't think it's possible to make a bad dish with blueberries.
Six things I could never do without
Friends and family
Computers (otherwise my job would be quite tricky)
Books (or my Kindle)
Variety (not the magazine)
On a typical Friday night I am
Wouldn't like to have any Friday nights that are just typical, but usually I'm out with friends.
You should message me if
I wouldn't even say 'if'. Take a chance. I love meeting all sorts of new people.

(But if you're smart, beautiful, have similar interests, funny, adventurous, optimistic, active, playful, curious, musical or any number of those things it certainly wouldn't hurt either.)
The two of us
