My self-summary
Corporate Lawyer by day, goof ball explorer/ wannabe athlete by night. I'm not a fan of clubs or big nights out. Instead I'd rather wake up early and find breakfast in a different part of the city.

My favourite things to do these days (Playing guitar, writing, fixing things and working with my hands) are things that I used to think were really lame 10 years ago.

I love adventure and exploring both locally and abroad. In the past I backpacked through Asia and Europe, and taught pre-school in South Africa. At the moment though I'm happy just exploring Toronto's food scene.

I am obsessed with dogs to the point I can't really function if ones in the room. I just lose my shit.

My go to sports are golf and tennis and I hit the gym whenever I have time. I love hiking , canoeing and camping but I somehow only manage to do that type of stuff 1-2 times a year.

I find work stretches my schedule pretty thin but I still try to get involved in my community. Along with taking on a number of pro bono cases I sit on the board directors for a charity focused on helping individuals special needs and where I worked when I was younger.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a lawyer. I absolutely love what I'm doing but I find its a struggle to keep my work/life balance in check. Law needs to chill the fuck out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently on my nightstand:

Sex drugs and Coco Puffs
Oblivion
100 Years of solitude
The Dark Tower V
Cats Cradle

Movies: Scott Pilgrim vs. the world, Hot tub time machine (I don't have to explain! THEY ARE MY CHOICES!)

Music: Everything, but partial to indie rock/pop and angsty emo rock for the gym.

Food: I have a strange passion for tacos. I can't explain it, but I've devoted a lot of time trying to understand the taco and it's infinite beauty. Sushi, Izakiya, Thai, Indian, BBQ, + Everything else.

I describe bacon as my favourite food even though I've never eaten it (jewish). Perhaps that's why I hate breakfast?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
At the moment my career is definitely at the front of my mind.

I also think a lot about how my actions are contributing to society, and whether I am living a good life (ethically, morally, and with meaning). How to make my weekends awesome. How to be more sincere and less judgemental.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In high school I joined the swim team but I didn't really know how to swim. I practiced only for the 50 meter front crawl. I did pretty good at our first meet. At this same swim meet someone dropped out for the 200 meter butterfly and the coach needed a replacement. She asked me to step up. She begged me. To this day I don't know why. I'd never swam butterfly before. Ever. My seed time was something like 3 minutes. It took me over 10. The lifeguard spent most of that time on edge, just waiting to jump in when the inevitable happened. After every length I had to stop and recover. I must have swallowed over a litre of water. But I finished! It was glorious.

At this same swim meet we also had developmentally disabled kids swimming to. And whenever they finished we'd all stand up and clap for them.

When I finished I got a standing ovation...
