My self-summary
I'm a little bit of a lot of things. I'm a musician, balancing my time between enjoying the music I still make (guitar, singing) and fondly remembering the music I've set aside (piano, drums). I'm a software developer, which despite what you might have heard is really not so bad. I am a dancer, spending a lot of my time swing dancing; if you ever visit the Ottawa dance scene you'll probably run into me. I was once an author, writing bad sci-fi and decent poetry when I got the chance, but that hasn't happened in ages. I'm a reader, slowly working my way through whatever box or pile of books I bought at the most recent garage sale. I'm a thinker, a doer, a planner, a lover of the English language, a one-time fencer, a laugher, and a good friend. I also make my own vodka infusions, mix delicious cocktails, and make mead at home.

I am optimistic, thoughtful, and free on Friday :)
What I’m doing with my life
Loving it!

Other than the obvious ("working", "spending time with friends", etc.), I'm just trying to get the most out of life. I keep myself busy with lots of hobbies and athletics, and do my best to never waste an opportunity.
I’m really good at
I've been told I have a good memory... unfortunately it's mostly used for remembering lines from movies and television. I also make nice-looking furniture in my workshop when the mood strikes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hard to say - it seems kind of rude to ask them when they've just met me. Maybe that I smile a lot?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Lord Of The Rings trilogy (Tolkien); Snow Crash (Stephenson)

Movies: The Matrix; Star Wars trilogy (the original); Office Space; Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?

Music: Where to start? I've got a lot of BNL and Great Big Sea. I enjoy the Beatles, Metallica, Grieg, The Guess Who, Days of the New, The Hip... it's kind of all over the map. Right now I'm in love with Honeyman and the Brothers Farr.

Food: Definitely pasta.
The six things I could never do without
Good friends
Music
An internet connection
Intelligent conversation
Books,
Summer thunderstorms (love those)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The many projects I'm usually involved with. I'm one of those people who has to have lots of things going on at once...and when I complete one thing, I find another pretty quick.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, maybe at the movies, maybe watching a live show down in the Market. Depends on the week!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a pack rat. I keep everything, only to end up throwing most of it out five years later. You just never know when you'll need it, right?
You should message me if
If you are looking for someone to chat with, go out to a show with, or grab a drink with, give me a shout!
