My self-summary
Journalism student, musician, writer, movie buff, gamer and night owl. Carpe noctem.

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. Two years into living in the city and I'm still impressed by the CN Tower. 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 features 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.

Do you think if they ever genetically engineered a pelican with the wings of a penguin they'd name it a pelican't?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a student again. Learning how to change the world one hard-hitting interview at a time. Or, more likely, how to write about cat cafés. It requires coffee. All the coffee.

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.

In my free time I try to track down live music, new bars, the best food and the secret spots around Toronto as best I can.

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...
I’m really good at
Rolling critical fails at the worst possible moments.

Wearing two different coloured socks and making it work.

Making breakfast for every meal. Breakfast food is my domain. I am the King of Breakfast...

...making toast is always a gamble.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Stephen King, Neil Gaiman and H.P. Lovecraft are some of my favourite authors. Andrew Pyper is my favourite Canadian author. The Dark Tower is both my favourite book AND favourite book series. Birds, meet stone.

Movies: I like horror movies that live in your head for days after you watch them. Think along the lines of The Babadook or The Witch (if only to be more recent/relevant) instead of Hostel or The Hills Have Eyes. I'm also rather fond of action and comedies. Some of my favourite films are The Fountain, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Thing ('82), The Mothman Prophecies and anything by Guillermo del Toro.

Music: Mainly, I'm a fan of rock and blues. I was pretty much raised on the Eagles and CCR, so they'll always be some of my favourite groups. 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.

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.
The six things I could never do without
Music
Stories
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.
Punctuation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Could I jump Springfield Gorge?
- Should I use the Oxford comma?
- Was that someone famous, and did they see me staring at them?
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably meandering about downtown, grabbing a coffee from someplace that isn't Tims or Starbucks (I'm on the fence about Second Cup) and stopping in at any interesting little shop I might happen to pass.
You should message me if
You have found the best caramel latté in the city.
If you'd like to play me in Smash Bros or Mario Kart.
If you have an appreciation for classic Simpsons.
If you have TV recommendations, it feels like all of my shows are ending.
If you're not against tattoos. Because at this point, there's really not much I can do about that...
