My self-summary
J'ai 42 ans.

I live in two worlds:

In one I'm an software developer: good at my craft, usually enjoy the work, and respected by my peers. But it consumes all my attention: a never-ending all-consuming vortex of productivity and stress. I am analytical and rational: point A leads to point B.

In the other, I am emotional and energetic. I am a yogi, a vegan, I sing kirtans and bhajans. I talk to people and am absolutely present and heart-filled. There is more to truth than what can be studied with our methods. The world is magic. Point A may lead to point B, but if you just let go and let the world lead you, you may find yourself somewhere radically different.

Embodying these two sides of me isn't easy, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm the engineering lead at a tech startup, building an app to help millennials save for their financial goals. The day and week goes by entirely too fast, which is better than it dragging.

J'ai pris des courses de français, et j'ai besoin practiquer parler. Apres un verre du vin, je parles mieux. Donc, si tu voudrais rire à mon mauvais comprehension, allons-y!

I love love love to dance. Almost exclusively ecstatic dance and 5Rhythms nowadays, because I have room to do my thing, and the energy is so much more loving and communal.
I’m really good at
Making up bizarre stories with random topics.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think my smile, though my eyes aren't bad either.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Long, movies where you get bored for about 5 minutes and then realize that, like life, being bored is simply part of what makes the other parts so exciting, like Lawrence of Arabia and Barry Lyndon. Good sci-fi like Moon. I'll cry watching Moulin Rouge every time.

Music is life: rarely am I not listening to something, usually trip-hop like Zero 7, Air, Massive Attack, Portishead. Female artists like Sia, Goldfrapp, and Erykah Badu are my kryptonite.

My reading is between yoga texts like Tantra and Autobiography of a Yogi, and Great Novels (Great Expectations is my favorite, but I have a soft spot for Proust as well).

And finally .... this year I decided to be vegan! It's actually a fun challenge going through the aisles searching for lait and miel. BTW St. Viateur bagels have eggs :(
Six things I could never do without
la musique, du vin, mes amis, mon passeport, the Pilot V5 pen and my MacBook.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Travel to friends or festivals.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing with a glass of wine, ideally having a meaningful evening with a friend or lover.
You should message me if
You've visited heaps of countries or you want to. You want to explore random Montreal places and find the best vegan food or hidden gem. If you're romantic and heart-centered and aren't afraid to connect.

Si tu veux assayer un américain d'apprendre français.
