My self-summary
"Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo" is a grammatically correct sentence with a meaning. This fact thrills me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm quite into film—as in I'm frequently checking out limited releases that are only playing at one theatre in hopes of discovering something new and cool (I do like the good mainstream stuff too). Recently, I've even gone on a trip out-of-province just to watch movies.

I do computer programming for fun. It's an unusual hobby, but it's my creative outlet. I first got into it when I was 7 years old and discovered I could make stuff with just the computer in my parents rec room (it was so much cooler than gluing popsicle sticks together). I also write software professionally; I think I'm pretty lucky to have a job that's so close to what I do for fun.

Finally, I like learning things. And there's still a lot I want to learn about. A few things that come to mind are: Vancouver's live music scene, photography, cooking, theatre, modern art and beer (taste-wise, I don't even know the difference between a lager and an ale right now).
I’m really good at
I've been told I make really good chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.

I know all the best places in Vancouver to buy chocolates—the product of coming from a family where everyone has a sweet tooth. Actually, I like being the guy who knows great places for food/coffee/entertainment/whatever, but I have more exploring to do before I can call myself an expert on anything other than chocolates.

Starting projects. But not the opposite...

Punctuation. May I draw your attention to my lovely em-dashes.

Sleeping. I've got this down. ...And yes, sleeping totally is something you can be good at :P

Six things I could never do without
1. Internet access - Aside: I'm noticing that almost everyone my age has this on their lists. Would people 10 years younger than us even think to list this? Or is it just like electricity for them, so integrated into their lives they don't even think about it?
2. A good pair of shoes.
3. Headphones.
4. Tea.
5. An umbrella (…I like Vancouver but I could do without all the rain).
6. Somewhere comfy to sleep.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make things that hardly anyone will ever see beautiful.
On a typical Friday night I am
1. At a movie theatre.
2. At a friend's place for games and banter.
3. At home watching random videos on Youtube while eating take-out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm into spanking ...and that's as much as I'm going to say publicly. Message me if you want to know more.
You should message me if
I've got quite an analytical personality so I've definitely spent some time thinking about what makes me like someone. But so far I haven't figured it out; I keep meeting people that are awesome in ways I hadn't considered before. That said, there are a couple of things most people I connect with seem to have in common:

First, you've got plans that you're working towards accomplishing. 'Cause I want to ride on your coattails …just kidding! But I do think it's exciting to be with someone who's doing something cool with their life.

Second, you can teach me something. I've found that I feel very close to someone when I'm learning from them. Hopefully I can teach you something too.
