My self-summary
Disclaimer: My username refers to the most powerful card in a game of bridge. I've had it long before somebody decided to run for political office.

I am lucky that I stumbled across a job that I love and managed to build a career over the last 10 years. Outside of work, I enjoy bridge, board games, brewing, cooking, and piano. I do a lot of weekend getaways and a couple bigger trips each year. I tend to focus on nature, history, food, and museums while travelling.

I value open-mindedness and believe everything has two sides.

I do pub trivia weekly and we have a pretty kick-ass team.

EPL (Arsenal) and NHL (Leafs, then Blackhawks) fan. Fantasy baseball and football enthusiast. As for playing, I am a swimmer, skier, and tennis player. I curled and played soccer in high school.
What I’m doing with my life
It's classified. I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.
I’m really good at
Directions and orientations.
Card games, board game; any games really.
Playing devil's advocate.
Making up "fun facts" and convincing you that it's true.
Conducting a symphony in the comfort of the driver seat.
The first things people usually notice about me
My dark sense of humour, no-BS attitude and that I always have a story to share.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am starting to think this section is completely ridiculous.

Favourite movies: Gladiator, The Departed, Terminator... any form of really good or hilariously bad action/sci-fi move. I also enjoy comedies (think Zombieland, Office Space, This is Spinal Tap).

Favourite shows: Community, Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, Silicon Valley, Archer, South Park, Mozart in the Jungle, and working on The Wire. Top Chef and Food network in general.

Music: I enjoy classical music, the symphony, opera and musicals. Chopin, Beethoven, and Wagner are my favourites. Seeing a friend play in a recital recently has gotten me to take practicing a little more seriously. Bonus point if you are a musician too. Last concert: Riot Fest

Favourite books: A Song of Ice and Fire, legend of the condor heroes series; The Economist; I read mostly non-fiction these days. Gladwell and Kahneman I enjoyed. Let me know if you have a favourite book you think I should read. Last Read: The Martian.

Favourite Food: I love food. I am an adventurous eater, so I'll eat just about anything. I will take any suggestions of places to try or be your dinner buddy for the next restaurant you want to try. I also love cooking for a large crowd; ask me what I have attempted. Last Restaurant: Maestro

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Someone's ear is in danger of having hair brushed over it.

You are intelligent and full of character. I am hoping to meet someone who is my equal in our adventures.
