My self-summary
Disclaimer: I've read through my profile, and realize that it sounds somewhat serious. I wish it was more funny. I'm a pretty funny guy, but maybe not so funny a writer. Anyway - enjoy!

I've been described as big-hearted, irreverent, easy-going, and a true original (I think this just means that I come off as authentic). In my time on this earth I've taught running clinics, immigrated to Canada from Czechosolvakia (that's what it was called when I lived there!), managed an ice-cream bike franchise, renovated a bathroom ("do it once and you're an expert" is my philosophy ;)), played in a number of bands, ridden 24-hour mountain bike (relay) races, skied in some of the best places around and used parentheses a lot... among other things. Hint - these are good conversation pieces: minus the parentheses. ;)

Im close to my family and a handful of friends. I believe in kindness to people and animals, and although not a vegetarian, the meat in my fridge had a good life.

I'm looking for someone to explore life with. I don't need us to have everything in common, but I do think compatible interests are important.

Kindness / warmth, respect and communication are important to me in relationship. Those are the basics for me, and I think that everything else can be built off of those. Also... I'm Jewish by birth, but don't practice.

Here's hoping for the best on this crazy site!
What I’m doing with my life
"I'm a software engineer." World's greatest conversation killer.
I’m really good at
Relationships with my family / friends / co-workers.
Long, drawn out conversations.
Home renovations.
Various IT things.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look like John Malkovitch or Peter Russo (from House of Cards).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some books I've enjoyed recently are The Cat's Table by Michael Ondaatje and Daring Greatly by Brene Brown, Creativity Inc (Ed Catmull - the creator of Pixar) and An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth (Chris Hadfield). I really enjoy dark graphic novels like The Walking Dead and some of the more adult Batman / Punisher work. Finally, I really enjoy David Sedaris' sense of humour and actually managed to see him speak once.

I am a big fan of Pixar animated movies, but also enjoy films based on historic events (The Queen, 13 Days). I like TIFF when I can manage to get out to it too.

TV: Current favourites: "House of Cards", "Community", "Brooklyn Nine-Nine, "Game of Thrones".

Music: Musically I've always been partial to a mix of rock, experimental jam bands, country and rootsy Americana. I'm not so much into the indy / electronica scene, but I don't throw a fit if I don't like what someone's playing. :)

Food: I love pretty much anything that doesn't involve entrails or eyeballs but I do love Haggis. I think living in Toronto makes you into a bit of a foodie.
Six things I could never do without
Good speakers
Cheese Danishes
My mountain bike
My two cats (the cutest in the world)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Funny things that people say, the next renovation I'm going to do, how to live life more authentically.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday is generally my relaxation night, but that said it doesn't usually take much to convince me to do something. I like to come home, cook, play guitar or watch a movie. Otherwise I like to head out to a local pub with friends or maybe a movie or a baseball game (although I didn't manage tickets this year!).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm bald. Seriously, this is the Internet.
You should message me if
I'm looking for connection, and want to take it from there based on how much fun we have. Ultimately I'd like a long term relationship so I don't have to advertise myself on here. :)

Furthermore: If You understand that subway doors aren't for standing in and move to the inside seat on the TTC, I think we'll get along. :)

Finally: Although I don't obsess about it, health and fitness are priorities for me so I am looking for that in a partner as well. If you're looking for the above in a guy who'll treat you nicely and poke fun at you at the same time drop me a line. :)
The two of us
