I'm a creative person who loves to laugh, read, listen to music and see live music. I'm a freelance website designer and I get a lot of pleasure from getting to combine my artsy-fartsy side with the challenge of programming logic.
I live for joking around and my favourite people in the world are the ones who make me laugh. The ones who surprise me with an offhand comment that ends up being something I'll laugh about days later. If you dig people like Jon Stewart, Louis CK, or the Muppets (I consider them people!), then we definitely have something in common.
Music is super important to me. I'm into all kinds of music. Feist, Arcade Fire, Metric, Land of Talk, Broken Social Scene, Radiohead, Belle and Sebastian are some of my favourites. If you do nothing else after reading my profile, please tell me about some of your favourite music... I love finding new stuff to listen to! I watch shows like Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Portlandia, Comedy Bang Bang and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. I read stuff like Philip K**** Salman Rushdie and Chuck Palahniuk.
Random things that might tell you something about me... I have a picture of Mr T on my wall. I hate the sight of human feet. I've had an obsession with pirates since elementary school. I appreciate geekiness. I hope to live in England one day. There's a G.I. Joe character that has the same name as me. I drink tea but not coffee...
Going for a walk is always a good first date, I've found. The people and places around you present a continuous merry-go-round of topics to talk about if the conversation lulls.
You can enjoy the view of a particularly lovely tree. Or successfully stalk and pet a cute cat. Or whisperingly mock tourists wearing giant fanny packs.
If it's cold, a nice cup of tea or other hot beverage at a cool cafe would be great, too.
