A bit about me. I'm confident and outgoing. I value kindness and left leaning ideas. I adore dogs and people who get why. Kids make me smile. Good conversation and red wine put a smile on my face. I'm equally comfortable eating Indian in little India or having dinner in an up-scale place. Self deprecation comes easily to me, especially when I'm playing soccer, which I play upwards of three times a week. I find wonderment in lots of things in life. I believe in the capacity of people to do good. I'm a humanist, and I'm an atheist.
My friends would say I'm geeky without being a nerd. I'm into documentary films, science fiction, CBC radio, being active outside, science, art, culture, live music, games, economics and people watching. I'm a critical thinker. As such, I read a wide variety of non-fiction and fiction. Unfortunately, I have an uncanny habit of falling asleep on top of my books. So, lending me a book is never a good idea.
I've traveled in Africa, Asia, South America and Europe. I'm into bands like Sonic Youth, The Dandy Warhols and The National. I own a nifty old house near Runnymede and St Clair. I sing shamelessly out of key when doing karaoke, but my friends seem to like it.
I'm hear to find is a partner who I can connect with. I believe that starts with friendship. I'm not in a rush.
I recently completed a masters degree in technology management.
I've been working on my house. Renovating an old place is a ton of work, but its satisfying.
Maintaining a zero balance on my credit cards. I'm one of those people who has a plan when it comes to that stuff called money.
Talking about all kinds of stuff with my friends. Taking the piss with my friends.
Defending Toronto from the naysayers. I love this city.
Doing a bit of gardening here and there. Which involves chasing squirrels away and trying to figure out why my tomatoes aren't as good as my neighbours. Actually, the cats from next door have co-opted my yard and lounge about. But that doesn't stop me from patting them.
Travel is a privilege I'm grateful for, but I don't define myself through it. A few of the places I've seen: Cambodia, Burma, Laos, Switzerland, France, Tanzania, Portugal and Vietnam. My most recent trip was to Havana.
I'm a good kisser.
I look young for my age.

How alternative facts are just lies.
Getting a dog some day.
The dust bunnies festering under my couch.
Plotting against evil doing neoconservatives and alt right fascists; I'm coming for you, Trump!
You are emotionally available, honest, and not flaky.
