My self-summary
I'm a Montreal-native who came to Victoria for school and now I'm in Vancouver for the foreseeable future. Winter is my favourite season, and I miss snow a ton. I'm a night owl and am perfectly capable of losing all track of time until the sun drops in to remind me.

I work in the video game industry so they take up a fair of my time, in a professional and personal capacity. It's a medium I love and am interested in seeing evolve in a technical capacity and along more abstract lines.
What I’m doing with my life
I just finished a long eight-year foray of higher education at UVic after jumping between schools in Montreal, the California Bay Area, and Victoria. Now I'm trying to build a career in the software industry.

I currently work as a technical analyst with a focus on support for internal teams and live operations.
I’m really good at
Getting things done at the last minute and it somehow working out. Not so great for the ol' impostor syndrome.

Figuring out how to do something after only seeing it once or twice, while being pretty bad -until- I've seen it done.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure. Maybe the pretty intense cow licks I've got going on in my hair?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Iain (M.) Banks is probably my favourite author for both his science-fiction and regular fiction, but I also like non-fiction that looks into rather off the wall stuff; Trevor Corson's The Zen of Fish was a fun read. When I'm looking for a good mindfuck Haruki Murakami is always a good choice, as are books like The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

Ratatat is easily my favourite band, but I also have a pretty broad range of music like Modest Mouse, Electric Six, John Legend, The Roots. Generally, I don't care much about the genre of music as long as it has that certain je ne sais quoi that draws me in.

Hmm, how do I possibly list this one? I'll play most anything for at least a little while but I guess my common favorites are over the top action games from people like Platinum Games; Metal Gear Rising, Wonderful 101, etc. I've been trying to dig more into indie games lately because it's the part of games where people are most free to do cool, innovative things with narrative and design.
The six things I could never do without
1) The internet
2) Japan's nonsense
3) Daydreaming
4) Games (video or otherwise)
5) Trying to be a better person
6) Oxygen (sorry, couldn't think of a good sixth)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My mind jumps around a lot when I'm not engaged in something, so I sometimes find myself going back and tracing the route it took for me to go from one particularly mundane thought to something wildly different. It's an amusing exercise in seeing how my brain works, kind of like playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon with your subconscious.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm increasingly unsure I know who or what I am.
You should message me if
If you feel like it. I figure if you made it this far you've probably got a good idea how you feel.
