My self-summary

I am a loud and awkward ninja with an above-average number of toes who recently moved to London from Vancouver, Canada.

Passionate about way too many things. My current addictions are judo, viola, internet of things (DIY electronic gadgets), woodworking, musical theatre, backpacking, and SCUBA diving.

In my past life I was also an avid aviator, having flown to over 25 airports all along west coast Canada and the US. Unfortunately I am not licensed in the UK... yet, but will hopefully fix that at some point!

LOVE travelling. Recently spent a month backpacking around Europe by myself, and it was amazing! Hope to do it again soon, and maybe with someone else? :) How about South America?

Feminist, and LGBTQ-friendly (and probably other orientations/identifications that I haven't heard of, as long as you don't eat children), liberal (*1), and a devout follower of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

I am kinky, and fairly active in the fetish/kink community. See my FetLife profile (GrassyBreakfast) for more details on that. In short, I love tying people up (mostly). More into sensual stuff. Using rope to connect. Definitely not looking for a 24/7 slave (or mistress, for that matter)! Also not really into very heavy stuff... though I guess that's relative. I am well-versed in the art of shibari.

I do exercise discretion in day-to-day life, however.

Also, I laugh a lot. A LOT. Please don't be offended if I start laughing for no apparent reason. I'm (probably) not laughing at you!

*1: by which I really just mean not-a-rear-end-hole - I'm not very political.
What I’m doing with my life
I do research in artificial intelligence at an industrial research lab, building our next friendly neighbourhood Skynet. I love my job.

Also spending a lot of time learning to play the viola at the moment. Just picked it up a year ago! Hoping to join an amateur orchestra again at some point. I played the clarinet in an orchestra many years ago, but always wanted to play string!

I am also trying to build all my own furniture, using my living room as a workshop.
I’m really good at
Breaking things, fixing things, then breaking them again.

Silly hypothetical conversations!

Singing in the shower... good for me and sucks to be you! Sorry!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Musicals: Miss Saigon, Book of Mormon (not the book!), Matilda, Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Les Miserables, Fiddler on the Roof, Chicago.

Books: Harry Potter, Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars, The Aquarium, 1984, Animal Farm, Brave New World, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Sycamore Row, Belle de Jour...

Music: Most classical stuff. Not picky. Current favourites are Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, and Rachmaninoff. Not a classical music buff! I know much less about music than it may appear :). Happy if you want to educate me though!

Anything Disney! Frozen, Tangled, Mulan, Toy Story, WALL-E...
Six things I could never do without
Sashimi, udon, travel, mental stimulation, lovely strangers.

Jute rope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe, and everything.

Social and evolutionary psychology.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a musical, singing in the shower, or meeting up with and/or tying up friends.
You should message me if
We sound like a good fit either as friends or potential partners!

Are passionate about things. Doesn't really matter what, but must be passionate about something that's not sleeping or watching TV!

I would especially love to hear from you if you are passionate about any of the things I am passionate about (see above)! I can talk about those things for hours at a time.

I have liked your profile but haven't sent you a message. It means I do like your profile, but haven't had time to write a message yet! I'll be very grateful if you message me first :). If not, I'll message you some time!
The two of us
