My self-summary
I am originally from Toronto, and lived in Edmonton for ten years, but am excited about Ottawa and could see myself being here long term. I am a newspaper reporter, so if nothing else, you should meet me so you can say you saw one before we go extinct.

I do what I do, because I am an insanely curious person and like telling stories. There are few jobs I can think of that let me ask this many questions. I think of myself as smart and funny, whether that is true is up to other people.

I like variety, the combination of roaring nights on the town and quiet nights in.

I haven't signed up for A-list, so send me a note. I don't see likes.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a mild-mannered reporter by day and by night a mild-mannered reporter tucked into bed.
I’m really good at
Asking questions, listening, telling stories, I am good at those things at work, but I like to think I am good at those things off the clock as well. When I ask someone about their day, it is because I generally want to know.

I am an above average cook and I have a vast trove of absolutely useless knowledge, which is great for trivial pursuit and just about nothing else. I like to make people laugh.

I also shine a mean shoe.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am not sure what people notice, a decent question for a first date I suppose.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like books a lot, so I could probably fill this page with books, but at the top of the list includes Into thin Air, The Perfect Storm, Catcher in the Rye, Moneyball, War reporting for cowards, the Game and I have a mild addiction to John Grisham novels. I tend to read non-fiction, over fiction.

Movies: Godfather, Star Wars, The American president, Ocean's Eleven, The Dark Knight, Saving Private Ryan.

Music: My tastes are pretty eclectic I like Pearl Jam, Sam Cooke, the Commitments, Johnny Cash, Metric, Dave Mathews band, Gershwin.

TV: West Wing, House, Frontline, How I met your mother, Criminal Minds, Castle.

Food: I like a variety of food and trying new things, but can't handle spicy food. It's not my fault it's genetic. My family is Scottish and the potato and salt are the only spices we know.
The six things I could never do without
Family, information, first season of the West Wing, phone, pens, naps.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My work, Canadian politics, U.S. politics, books, where I have left my keys.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends for a drink, watching a movie at home, at the gym, reading a book. I work Sunday to Thursday so Friday is my Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My sense of directions sucks. I print google maps to places that should be easy to find.

Also, I can't tie a bow-tie. When I look at one untied, I don't really even understand the moving parts.
You should message me if
You want to. You enjoy good conversation. You have a good Zombie apocalypse plan.
