Fun Fact: I got my first job (lifeguard) because on my resume I said I could do magic tricks.
Family is very important to me. I love my family and spend a lot of time with them.
Getting drunk is not my idea of a good time. I choose not to drink at all, though I'm fine with people having a drink or two.
Fun Fact: My eyes are two slightly different colours.
I love acting and theatre. I've been in more than a dozen plays and had a couple lead roles. Last summer I played Sir Andrew Aguecheek in Twelfth Night. I also have to tell you that I'm shy. Yes, it's a strange combination. I've surprised many people when they see how well I can act.
I am politically left wing.
In 2012 I purchased a town house where I am living with two friends.
A healthy life style is important. When I learned a couple years ago how detrimental sugar (fructose) is to our health, I made changes in my diet, avoiding processed food with lots of sugar additives and stopped drinking fruit juice. I do have a weakness for cookies and chocolate, but my cookies have a lot less sugar than most, and I won't eat more than one a day.
Fun Fact: I have invented several cookie recipes (no exact number given as this number keeps increasing).
I take fencing lessons and I jog. I used to ski but haven't in years. If I have someone to ski with I'd like to get into skiing again.
More authors I like: Neil Gaiman, Orson Scott Card, John Scalzi, Brian McClellan, Robert Jordan.
Fun Fact: When I was a kid I wrote 100 pages of a book about Yoshis.
Movies: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Princess Bride (the book is also fantastic), Pink Panther, Get Smart, Murder by Death (it's a detective parody), Up, Wreck it Ralph.
TV Shows: Doctor Who, Better Off Ted, Community, Arrested Development, Futurama, Murdoch Mysteries.
Music: Tegan and Sara, Rachel Platten, OneRepublic, Of Monsters and Men, Regina Spektor, Les Cowboys Fringants, Taylor Swift, The Beatles, U2
I like to cook, but prefer to cook with someone. I try to cook something from scratch at least once a week, usually on weekends when I don't have to work.
Food: Indian (when it's not super spicy), Italian, pierogies, quiche, cheese, peanuts, chocolate, onions, pears, apples.
Fun Fact: Peanut butter and chocolate is the best combination.
Games! I enjoy playing card games. Especially trick taking games. Also video games. I like to play them and create them. Yup, create them. I'm currently working on a game that combines the puzzle and shmup genres. My favourite games are RPGs with compelling stories and side scrollers a la Mario.
Fun Fact: I have invented 6 card games and 1 board game.
Fun Fact: My family used to make giant cardboard box mazes that took hours to get through, if you made it out at all.
