My self-summary
From Nova Scotia but went to Western for school and now living in Downtown Toronto. I'm a big fan of the city and living it up with my friends.

Studied business and economics but really interested in how people make decisions, specifically how those decisions are influenced by marketing (my current industry).

I have discovered that I am a little rusty when it comes to meeting new people, so thought I would try online since the concept of yelling over music at a club isn't exactly my wheelhouse.
What I’m doing with my life
After I graduated I ended up working in marketing strategy in Toronto. Luckily most of my university friends are in the city and they are really good at peer pressure, leading to hilarious encounters with everything from rock climbing to scotch fountains (true story).

At the moment I'm doing international corporate development for a marketing company that expanding into some of the BRIC nations, which makes for interesting exposure to different cultures.

Basically I'm at a point where I have little to no idea where I want to end up and sort of trying a whole bunch of different things to see what sticks. So if you have any suggestions of something new to try let me know!
I’m really good at
sharing a laugh

trying new things

storytelling (I lived with 5 guys for 18 months in Toronto. It was amazing!)
The first things people usually notice about me
Normally, that I'm tall or funny?

Also, I love learning about anything and everything so when I don't know about something I love just asking a fair number of questions. This is why my last attempt to hit on someone resulted in a surprisingly in depth discussion on contract law, which is interesting given I have pieced together my view on law from Suits and Franklin & Bash.

pretty much anything else, given the right context

anything, but if I had to pick a single meal probably bbq steak with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob; that said I really love indian food due to some travel for work
Six things I could never do without
internet access/computer
good food
nice wines/scotches/beers
fitness (toying with crossfit right now and loving it)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
people in completely random scenes/situations. ie one of my friends somehow ending up in a las vegas casino basement playing russian roulette with North Korean businessmen. if you knew him that would not be nearly as ridiculous as it sounds

also, marketing, economics, psychology, humour, and funny tv shows (if you take nothing else from this profile, PLEASE watch Archer, Community, and Arrested Development)
On a typical Friday night I am
either seriously questioning my friends' decision making processes and loving every second of it (jimmy eat world karaoke? really? 4L pitchers? touche...)


sitting and watching an old movie that randomly showed up on TBS/I haven't seen in a really long time
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty scared about the prospect of ending up unremarkable, and I'm doing everything I can to avoid it.
You should message me if
any/all of these things:

you think I'm dreamy

you want to show me a really cool art gallery or concert

you lost a bet with some friends over a few bottles of wine and they forced you to look online for guys to show you that "they aren't all bad"

or really, if you're just looking to meet someone new and see what happens let me know!

All the best!!
The two of us
