What I’m doing with my life
Currently working for myself as a Copywriter and First Aid instructor.

In my spare time I make art (writing & amateur Happy Impressionist paintings) and am pretty active. Gym, yoga, bicycling, swimming & more. Always up for a hike through the city.
I’m really good at
Writing! Also, being disarmingly honest. I've been told I wear my heart on my sleeve. I don't tend to think this. It could be part of the honesty parcel.

Conversation. There are few ways to get to my heart faster. Or, put concisely, I'm good at conversation with depth.

Creating. My writing is a big part of who I am.

The first things people usually notice about me
Interesting question. I could say my eyes, but that's an easy answer. Too common as well. Umm... let's say my sense of humour.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
-American Beauty
-The Social Network
-Margin Call
-Dangerous Liaisons
-The Man Who Fell to Earth
-Batman Begins - The Dark Knight Rises

-House of Cards
-Skins (UK Version)

Just too damn many to count. But here's a few:

-The Sheltering Sky: Paul Bowles
-The Swimming Pool Library: Alan Hollinghurst
-How Happy to Be: Katrina Onstad
-Mysterious Skin: Scott Heim

-David Bowie
-Peter Gabriel
-The Rolling Stones
And I could go on (but won't; I'm sure you've picked up the 70s' thread)

-Thai food (yum)
Six things I could never do without
1) My gym bag (neon running shoes, water bottle, shorts and shirt) - My gym bag looks more like I'm on my way to Special Ops tactical training than the gym.

2) A book of the moment. These days I'm reading 'Getting to Yes' a book on negotiations

3) My friends. An eclectic bunch, spread over three cities by my count now. Love 'em all, think about them often.

4) Peanut Butter. The lazy man's snack

5) My Driver's License. I don't own a car, but I certainly like playing chauffeur when the opportunity arises.

6) My Journal
I spend a lot of time thinking about
That would be boring if I wrote about that.
Go here to read my blog; it's interesting: http://anxiousurbanite.blogspot.com
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working or outside enjoying a long walk.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm going to play it modest here. Like any sensible modern gentleman, I don't reveal my secrets to the Internet.
You should message me if
You're looking for an activity partner (or more).

Someone to explore Toronto with on a weekend night. Maybe it ends with us playing chess (or Poker, or Monopoly) Maybe it ends with us falling asleep on a couch.

By writing activity partner I should clarify. This can be fluid - we can go from friendship, to dating, or just stay friends. I'm not placing any expectations on this.

If you're going to message me, tell me something about you - what projects are close to your heart, what you're reading right now. You can also make me laugh. If you're funny, then it's double plus good.
The two of us
