My self-summary
Hello!

I am attracted to creativity, intelligence, and enthusiasm. People who are happy, healthy, and interested.

If you notice a few extra u’s and a general air of politeness, I must confess that I am Canadian. I’ve been in Portland for nearly two years already, and am really enjoying it here. It still feels new.

If we meet, don’t let me drink coffee, at least not on the first date. It makes me jittery and I’ll start talking way more quickly than would be appropriate. I just had to institute a self-imposed ban on coffee except for weekends. Just have to take it one day at a time.
What I’m doing with my life
Working (making iPhone and Mac apps), playing, thinking, eating, drinking, being outside, trying new things, meeting new people, listening to music, and generally having a splendid time.
I’m really good at
Trivial Pursuit. Making lasagna. Justifying travel expenses to myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I smile a lot? I'm not sure.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I (oddly?) think Charles Dickens is hilarious. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is an old favorite, so yes, I am slightly nerdy. I'll have to come back and fill in more here.

TV: Community, 30 Rock, Always Sunny, Futurama, Arrested Development, Dexter, and Mad Men.

Movies: I enjoy most anything by Christopher Guest, Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, P.T. Anderson (just saw The Master, and I'm not sure if I liked it or not yet. Update! I think I didn't.), or movies written by Charlie Kaufman. I'm also a bit of a sucker for 80's movies. Oh, and good documentaries.

Music: I have varried tastes, but mostly tend towards indie and folksy stuff. Some stuff I've been listening to lately: Hey Ocean, The Lumineers, Hello Saferide, Of Monsters and Men, The Postal Service (in celebration of them going on tour again!), The Streets, Childish Gambino, Tegan and Sarah, All Girl Summer-Fun Band, Allah-Las, and Foxygen.
The six things I could never do without
Family and friends
Travel
Being outside
Music
Laughter
Summer afternoons
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I would like to travel next, things I would like to learn, and what I want to accomplish in life. Also what other people are thinking about.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was travelling in Japan a couple of Japanese girls told me I look like Brad Pitt… “only more fat-o”. Best backhanded compliment ever. Okay fine, it's not that private (and I do realize that to North American eyeballs I look nothing at all like Brad Pitt).
You should message me if
You either have, or imagine you will eventually have laugh wrinkles. You're optimistic, intelligent, kind, and affectionate (and you don't mind my use of the oxford comma). Or maybe if you are awesome in ways I don't even know about yet.
