I grew up in the wilds of Northwestern Ontario, so I'm still getting used to the fact that Toronto doesn't have teams of beaver pulling their taxis. I've adapted quite well to city life, it's nice not having to cross international lines to go to a movie theatre. I'm very comfortable in the middle of the woods, surrounded by trees and tiny singing woodland creatures. My superhero name would be "The Woodsman" but my powers would make me only slightly less impressive than Snow White.
My hometown was featured in a Tim Horton's Christmas ad you may have seen. They claimed it is the coldest place in Canada. Don't trust television, is the lesson.
I've recently started to invest more in my camera. I'd like to eventually shoot professional headshots and weddings, but right now I mostly stick to city/ landscapes to start really getting the fundamentals locked in. I also just started experimenting with nighttime photography, which is fun and challenging in its own way. I love pictures of the night sky so I'm not giving up until I can take the perfect shot of the Milky Way over the lake at my cabin.
I love cooking, but I'm helpless without a recipe. I think by this point I've watched every video Gordon Ramsay has on Youtube, but I can never find the quantities he uses. The good news is that needing to practice makes a lot of extra food that needs to be eaten. I'm also not afraid of cooking with tofu.

Making breakfast for every meal. Breakfast food is my domain. I am the King of Breakfast...
...making toast is always a gamble.

Music: I was raised on the Eagles and CCR so my taste in music tends to run towards classic rock and blues. I'm bad at finding new music, but I try. Zeppelin, Billy Joel, Goo Goo Dolls and Alter Bridge are a few more of my favourites. Union Duke is a great Toronto-area band that you should definitely check out.
TV: The Simpsons, Castle, The Flash, Daredevil, Doctor Who, Gravity Falls, Scrubs, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Expedition Unknown, The IT Crowd
Food: Japanese, East-Indian, Pub and breakfast.
Museums -- if I could live in the ROM, the Louvre or the British Museum, I would.
Coffee -- Nectar of the gods. I'm on an endless search to find the best caramel latté in the city.
Hollandaise sauce - it may shave years off my life, but it makes everything better
- just how small we are in the grand scheme of the universe. Thanks, Sagan.
- if they ever genetically engineered a pelican with the wings of a penguin do you think they'd name it a pelican't?
You'd like to play me in Smash Bros. Kirby FTW.
You have an appreciation for classic Simpsons.
