Canadian, through and through. I'm a Vancouver resident now, but I've lived in 5 provinces, and grew up in the suburbs of Toronto. I'm a lover of the great outdoors (mountain biker, hiker, backpacker and camper), a technology nut, gaming geek, a socialist-to-liberal-minded bleeding heart. I'm an unapologetic idealist, treehugger enviro-weenie atheist. On the work side of things, I do communications, business development, project management, marketing (sort of), and procurement (sort of). I am an expert in the recruitment industry and employment - particularly in the Vancouver IT market. I'm husband, a dad, and the BFF to the world's most awesome dog. If you're in to the whole Myers Briggs thing, I'm INFP or INFJ, depending on the day.
I try to be as friendly as possible, although that friendliness may depend on the amount of coffee I've had if you're catching me in the morning.
My future-friend engagement guarantee:
If you engage with me, I will reply. If you add me without reaching out, then it's great to have you along for the ride, but the chances are I probably won't add you back until we've had a chance to say hello. Meeting new people is awesome, right?
Where to stick me:
If you're thinking of adding me to a circle, I'd suggest:
- Hiking/biking/the great outdoors
- Information Technology/gadgets/gaming
- Employment/job hunting tips/career guide
- Human rights/humanity/I'm a human
- Tattoos and the relevant subcultures
- Art, music & photography (appreciation)
- Debate club, but only, and ALWAYS respectful. I have no time for trolls.
- Atheism, rationalism, humanism
- Business/business communications/communications/writing
- Social Media
I'm not a puritan, and I appreciate well-placed salty language, and my jimmies remain unrustled at the sight of nudity. I love a good debate, and I appreciate contrasting opinions, and am a strong proponent of free speech,
I have no time for disrespectful or rude people. If you get heated, I get it - I do too - but if you can't avoid mud-slinging or name-calling, I'm out. I'm here to share interests and conversation - the second a debate devolves into personal attacks is the second I pull the chute.
And that's it - pretty easy, right? Right. Looking forward to talking with you!
