My self-summary
Looking at my photo and user name, you're probably thinking this guy is too crazy for me. Yes, it's true the button down shirt shouts: "Wild", even "Out of control." The khakis might make you wonder, "Is he wearing light coloured pants outside in late summer - with no concern for slipping and picking up an unsightly grass stain?" The barn cat probably has you saying, "Wow, he really is a 'throw caution to the wind' kind of man. To hell with his allergies - he doesn't seem to care!!!"

If the picture doesn't have you running the other way, surely the user name will. "He's pretty bold and provocative," you'll think. "Smile? What kind of a cocky, arrogant person starts off with a revealing look INSIDE his own mouth? And TO - that could mean anything. Thirsty oddball? Tasty offer? Tights optional? This guy must be disturbed!"

Well, rest easy okcupid reader... Don't let this first impression concern you. Despite how rebellious it looks, behind the bad boy exterior and the risque user name is a man like other men.

I am a dad to two wonderful, awesome, incredible kids. I am a writer and communications specialist, I love the city and offer my spare time to making it better. I work with a team of volunteers to make sure planters are planted, graffiti is removed and our community remains connected.

The ability to walk to the bakery or visit a local hardware store is very important to me.

At the same time, my work combines rural and urban Ontario in a very unique way. I visit farms across the country and engage in some spirited controversy in our cities. Love to travel and explore anything new.

When I take my kids, nine and eleven, skating, tobogganing or snow fort building, I am probably enjoying it more than them. Love the Canadian winter!

Being separated, I do have down time, and am really coming to appreciate that. Excited about what is next!
What I’m doing with my life
Making magazines, fixing sidewalks, holding meetings, talking to the media, and of course, conducting science experiments on how Crayola ink reacts to buckets full of water. Also spending a fair bit of time admiring and writing about horses.
I’m really good at
the art of making the perfect snowball. Yes, anybody can make a good snowball from ideal packing snow, but the challenge is to do this with powder. (Spoiler alert) The key is using your bare hands.
The six things I could never do without
In the politest of tones, I'll have to ask family, friends, air and water to sit this one out.

With them resting comfortably on the sidelines, it gives the delightful clingstone peach a fighting chance. She is on the list only if she's a Leo and born and raised in Ontario. While she cracks the starting lineup, let's be perfectly clear: she shall not upstage the fabulous fiddlehead, who finally will get some much deserved attention. Yes, the curliest and cutest veggie will no longer be denied!

Moving from the dinner table, I shall not live without my favourite companions Mr. and Mrs. Ticket. Oh the fun we've had - late nights, early mornings, matinees... Without their influence, I'm not sure what my life would be. I can only imagine sitting on the bench outside the theatre contemplating the great wonder beyond those double doors. Sitting in the train station admiring the travelers as they board and depart, never to experience the feeling myself. They have accompanied me on my finest of journeys, and they shall not be left behind.

Now it gets tough. Glue has spent a decade lobbying to make this list but I only have room for one adhesive and that position I'm sorry to say, belongs to tape - glorious, magical tape.

I'm sure 90% of the lists on this site include wheel. And while it's as predictable as the ipod, my fine round friend will once again win out with his impressive rolling prowess.

Finally, with one spot remaining, there are so many worthy candidates. Rock has expressed keen interest. Cotton candy sent in a strongly worded letter. Tupperware was caught trying to steal my password to write herself into the box...

But frankly, none of them has a chance against the clear winner: word. Her flexibility provides me great company. And she gets more lovely with each passing day, especially when we meet up with someone who appreciates her equally.

Sorry rock, but don't give up. Your time will come!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why Smee never found a more ambitious Captain to plunder with. Sure, Hook is a stylish dresser and a smooth talking leader - even the steel accessory is somewhat cool, but the man has major flaws. A complete lack of focus on the subject of treasure. Totally preoccupied with the flying boy. Deathly afraid of a ticking reptile... A pirate? Hardly.
On a typical Friday night I am
having dinner with my kids. Hoping this can stay a tradition. With the craziness of the week, the concept of turning everything off for the night is something that feels right at the end of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I feel sad that the fourth little piggy had no roast beef. Really the third little piggy couldn't have shared one slice? Would it have been too much to ask for the first little piggy to pick some up? He WAS at the market!
