I'm a completely easy going guy, get along with pretty much anyone...., decent sense of style (I have WAY too many shoes for a guy! As you're reading this I'm probably looking for more online), maybe a little on the soft spoken side but I have a sharp sense of humour. I have a great job that I enjoy working with creative, talented and fun people but it certainly doesn't rule my days. In fact, when it's at its best its more like a hobby. That probably all sounds fairly boisterous so I'll add that I have no problem laughing at myself for the purpose of amusing others. Trying to type up this self sales pitch is ridiculous enough!
I think I'm quite social and enjoy simply spending time with my close friends relaxing on a patio or in a lounge or a favourite restaurant and trying out new spots which Vancouver is great for. I try and stay in decent shape and do long, painful seawall runs and torturous boxing classes regularly, but really that is probably more to offset a love of food, both good and bad! It's all about balance right? I love music and seeing noisy bands (Beady Eye, Raveonettes, Laura Marling (not noisy but crazy talented), BRMC, Arctic Monkeys, Blondie, The Primitives, The Cult, The Hives, Kaiser Chiefs, The Kooks, Noel Gallagher, Silversun Pickups, Mumford & Sons, The Verve, J&MC, Stone Roses, Brit Rock!) and started taking guitar lessons a few years ago. I absolutely stink so don't expect to hear anything from me! I love travelling (seems everyone on this site does!) which my job provides plenty of, plus most of my summer months are left free to go exploring. I'm kind of obsessed with the Hawaiian Islands, can't get enough of their beach/ocean/laid back, less-is-more livin'! I will add though that I am not a camper. Ever. I love stepping out the door and exploring and wandering about a new place and taking billions of pictures but I need some form of civilization to return to at the end of the day. When I'm at home in Vancouver I can usually be found relaxing on the seawall reading, peddling my clunky cruiser bike or exploring Gastown.
I'm almost always up beat, very friendly and completely drama-free and expect others in my life to be the same. I really don't have much tolerance for "it's all about me" attitudes, poor manners (that's a big one), bad tippers or freaky grumpy mood swings. I know it's a cliche but really, life is too short! I consider myself very positive and the only time you'll hear me use the word "hate" it will likely be in reference to golf or broccoli.
If any of this jives with who you are, you're cute, friendly, and have a ridiculously vibrant personality then send a note and introduce yourself. Now please! And also, as this profile hopefully shows I live a much more youthful existence than what the age might suggest.
