My self-summary
I did my masters in CS, in a topic that sounded super interesting (computation neuroscience!) though turned out to be kinda dull. Now I'm back in industry writing software that sounds really dull (industrial control systems!) but is really interesting. I also spend a bit of my free time working on start up ideas. I did one full time for a couple years but that was mostly a bust, now I still tinker around and am collaborating with some people on new projects.

I stay very active and do more sports and activities than is generally recommended. I run daily and have done several marathons and ultra-marathons. I also curl, wall climb, and do various other sports depending on the season. I even do a bit of yoga when I'm not too busy letting my legs recover from running. I also love to go hiking and backpack in the mountains. I've done a bit of travelling though not as much as I'd like, I really want to see more of Europe to start with.

In my free time I do some reading, generally SF or classics though I try for a bit of variety. And I'll often go down to the art gallery to wander around and look at paintings (which is actually a terrible date idea because who wants to awkwardly look at paintings while trying to whisper small talk?) Recently I've started taking Improv classes and going to open jams, I find it's a pretty fun way to be creative and challenge my brain to do something different.
I’m really good at
running, baking bread, making terrible jokes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Among movies Fight Club, Pulp Fiction, The Princess Bride, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly are good fun.

Indie, Canadian, and foreign films can be awesome.

As long as I don't have to watch anything by Michael Bay I should be satisfied.

As for music classical, 60's folk stuff, rock, electronic, what might be pop, and weird indy stuff. Basically I've just given up looking for stuff considered cool and just find things engrossing enough to stop my mind from wandering off and taking my sanity with it.
The six things I could never do without
1. Running
2. Computers
Between those I'm fairly set
You should message me if
your name isn't 'Erin', because my name is Aaron, and the two of us dating would just be weird and awkward.
