I'm living the American dream: moving to Canada. I transplanted here from Washington DC five years ago.
Being from the East coast, I have a dry sense of humor and am often sarcastic.
I'm quite easy-going, but can still keep a schedule.
I'm in grad school and work on the side. I'm a bit of a geek, and am often stuck at a computer more than I'd like.
I'm rarely serious and smile more than my photos would indicate.
I sleep less than I should and enjoy coffee more than I should.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, I'm not very good at sitting still.
I listen to a lot of music, most of it electronic.
I often have wanderlust.
I have a couple of bikes and am crazy enough to use them all winter.
I like to take photos, but my camera likes the rain a lot less than my bike does.
I verb words.
I find heading out of town, going out on the town, and staying in and watching idiotic cartoons all equally necessary.
I guess you could describe me as "East Van" but not in the tight pants or dreadlocks sort of way.
I don't even think I own a photo of myself with my shirt off.

I am intense, eccentric, and grounded
Specifically, I work on computer graphics and play around with expensive cameras and monitors, trying to figure out how to make them do new tricks.
