My self-summary
You may describe me as somewhat eccentric, slightly introverted, generally quite funny, observant (mostly), empathetic, genuine, and expressive.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing and songwriting, working at a granite countertop shop playing with stone all day, bartending the odd concert, doing my best to sock away money for future travel, learning.
I’m really good at
Funny and not-so-funny voices, improvising, reading aloud, singing stuff, cooking a handful of things
The first things people usually notice about me
My slight accent, my extra-piercing big brown eyes, my oh so innocent child-like laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Vonnegut, Hemingway, Milan Kundera (particularly The Book of Laughter and Forgetting)

the poets Al Purdy, Marvin Francis, Leonard Cohen, Charles Bukowski

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Annie Hall, Zelig, Ed Wood, Modern Times, In a Lonely Place, Oldboy

I tend to listen to a lot of everything. I like focusing on different songwriters or spending time with a specific decade or movement.

pizza, sushi, thai, good breakfasts and a bit of vegetarian cooking.
The six things I could never do without
pens
instruments
various cleanliness products
soft things
liquids
shoes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how art is put together, the value of personal expression, social and political realities, ways to sound overly deep and soulful.
On a typical Friday night I am
myself, as per usual. Often seeing friends, taking in the odd cultural event, wandering alone with my camera, stretching, hermitting up with my guitar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
never been to prison, never broken a bone, never had a cavity

... my favourite song to whistle absent-mindedly is "bicycle built for two"

I just quit smoking by switching to a nicotine vapourizor. It kind of looks like an astronaut cigar.
You should message me if
You're thinking I'm a nice looking chap that you may want to meet, or you're not from here and have something interesting to say.
