My self-summary
Sincere, a deep thinker, positive, and curious. I am someone who always appreciates the simple things, but still chases adventure and challenge. I am on a lifelong mission to improve myself. My faith is really important to me.
What I’m doing with my life
I am always doing a lot of different things. I'm a copywriter, a choir director, a grad student, and a teacher. But that's just what I do for a living! Most of all, what I want to do with my life is encourage and inspire others, explore the world, and never stop learning.
I’m really good at
I'm not really a master of any one thing, but I'm a really quick study, and will work incredibly hard at any new activity or task I'm given.
I'm pretty good at video games, with the notable exceptions of platformers and FPS, which I'm embarrassingly incompetent in.
I'm not an expert chef, but I've been cooking for most of my life and am pretty proud of my skills. I love making new recipes and discovering awesome meals to add to my repertoire.
If healthy living counts, I'm good at that. I hit the gym 2-3 times a week, eat good food (I feel like "clean" eating is kind of a meaningless buzzword?), and am always dabbling in a sport or two to stay fit. This past year, I learned how to skate and joined a rec hockey team, which I've been loving.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess the top three things outspoken strangers say upon meeting me are: "you're so tall!", "how do you stay so slim?", and "you have such a great smile!". In a big group, I am probably the person who is listening carefully and thoughtfully rather than trying to talk over the crowd.

The six things I could never do without
1) A properly equipped kitchen
2) A passport. I love to travel. My style is more about hostels, meeting locals, and trying off-the-beaten-path experiences than about cruises, resorts, or group tours.
3) A couple of really close friends. My social circle is small but deep.
4) Reading material. I've always got a few things on the go.
5) Personal challenge. I love being put to the test and improving myself.
6) A church community where I can discuss my faith. This is something essential for me to share with my partner, too.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future. Even though I'm a pretty spontaneous person, I like to accumulate information and make hypothetical plans for future travel and career plans. I think a lot about how I can improve myself, and whether I'm on a path I can be proud of.
On a typical Friday night I am
Every weekend, a hockey teammate and I have a "sci-fi & skating" dinner night. Lately, we've been rewatching Firefly.
If that's not a Friday, then I'm possibly gaming with online friends, or working a bit late on some writing projects to keep my weekends free from obligations.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book...if you message me or we talk in person!
You should message me if
I'm open to meeting just about anyone passing through Montreal and looking for a friend.

For anything serious, shared faith is really important to me, and I'd love to get to know someone who has goals and passions of their own.
