I am originally from Canada. Born and raised near Toronto for the first 27 odd years of my life. I moved to the Bay Area for work. I've been working a lot for the past couple of years and figure it's time to enjoy life a bit more.
I consider myself pretty knowledgeable in a bunch of different topics like current events, politics, and hot-button issues.
I don't take anything too seriously but I like to have intelligent conversations with people with generous helpings of jokes and sarcasm so it's not just a boring conversation.
I'm fairly outgoing and will definitely register an opinion on most things.
What else is there to say?
- Poker (I'll often go to Vegas for a weekend just to play!)
- Some video games
- knowledge of current events
I'm blunt and honest - most of my friends would say I'm too much of both.
I don't spend time worrying about things I can't impact.
I'm not traditional. I don't respect things because they were handed down or people because of their titles, etc.
- Guns, Germs and Steel
- The Intelligent Investor
- The Secrets of Consulting
- A Brief History of Time
Fiction - I don't read very much fiction
- The Forever War
- The Lord of the Rings
- The Usual Suspects
- Terminator 2: Judgement Day
- The West Wing
- Star Trek: The Next Generation
- Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
- The Godfather
- Game of Thrones
- True Lies
- Pulp Fiction
- Reservoir Dogs
I'm sure I'm missing lots of stuff in the above lists...
Food wise there is also a lot but the absolute favorites are:
Steak (from Mortons or S&W)
Lasagna (Wolfgang Puck's)
Butter Chicken (from lots of places)
Music - all types. I mostly listen in the shower and have a pretty good Pandora station now.
- first world infrastructure
Well... I totally sucked the fun out of this.
The Harry Potter movies were amazing!
- you want to meet and not just send messages
- I've messaged you (the best reason :P)
