My self-summary
Does the idea of long, barefoot walks on the sands of Tatooine, evading Imperial patrols with crates of Holocrons in the back of your ship, and delving deep into the tombs of Korriban in search of lost Sith knowledge intrigue you? If so, read on!

I know that labelling is all the rage these days, but I'm a rather simple person that way. Straight, White, Male. Fantasy writer of unknown repute.

Politically I consider myself to be a member of the "Don't be an ass" party. Both Liberals and Conservatives have their share of good ideas and terrible ones.

I'm very in-tune with world events. And try to stay on top of things as much as I can. I donate regularly to worthy charities and am very much aware of just how good we have it here in the west.

I'm an army guy, with a passion for History, Science, Literature and Horror Movies.
I could go on and on about any and all of those topics, but in the interest of saving your time and getting to the point, I shall not.
Though by all means, I will if you ask.

What I’m doing with my life
I'm an apprentice craftsman at the Canadian Forces school of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, a Military college at CFB Borden. I love my job and pour my heart and soul into my studies. I also do a fair bit of travel this way.

It makes the concept of long term dating difficult. But I don't mean to turn anyone off by saying that, just please understand that things may be long distance now and then. I love my job, and strive to find some level of balance between work and personal life. Though that's easier said than done at times.

The first things people usually notice about me
I'm actually a shy, quiet type of person in public. I rarely make the first approach. It's nothing personal, I just get lost in my own thoughts easily, it has been mistaken for disinterest before, but I am working to get past this. A surefire way to get me to speak is to ask my opinion on something.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Political thrillers, or Sci-Fi fantasies. Anywhere that I can get lost in a well established plot with interesting characters. I'm a Harry Potter fanboy, though I also enjoy books by Tom Clancy, Sun Tzu and Steven King.

Music - Metal. Swedish Power Metal and Thrash Metal To the style of Blind Guardian or Dethklok. Also some Techno/Trance/Hardstyle. Not ashamed to admit I have a thing for Lindsey Stirling too!

Food - I like (actual) Asian cuisine (not the takeout stuff). Ramen noodles with spices, Sushi or Teppanyaki.
I try to keep a balanced diet. Honestly there is no vegetable or fruit I would not at least attempt to eat. I like the classic ick foods like Broccoli or Beets. Greek or French inspired soups are really good too!
That said, not a big fan of Provolone cheese. Blech.

Movies - Lots of horror movies. Summer blockbusters are a hit-or-miss. Generally I would rather sit and watch a very long movie with an extensive plot and deep characters (Spent a sick day watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy) as opposed to a bland, boring and uninspired CGI heavy cliche-fest.
Recently got into Vikings, now I can't escape it. Halp!

Not really a movie, but Foamy the Squirrel is awesome too!
Six things I could never do without
People who ask questions
People who don't have all the answers
My dogs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
"Wenn ist das Nunstück git und Slotermeyer? Ja! Beiherhund das Oder die Flipperwaldt gersput!"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I actually became an ordained minister while bar hopping one night, and still hold the credentials. Seriously.

I was TIME magazine's person of the year back in 2006

I'm slowly coming around to liking kids. I've been indifferent/mildly annoyed by them for most of my life. But over the past little while I've become a little bit more open. It's a work in progress, right now I'm trying to clean up my language a bit whenever they're around.
You should message me if
You understand that there is a difference between supporting the Military, and supporting war.

You're genuine, friendly and okay with the fact that I might take a little while to truly open up to you.

You wear glasses.
The two of us
