While I work on getting something together, here is my facebook about me:
A bit of an old soul living in Toronto with my wife Tammy and beautiful daughter Paige. I am dedicated to my family first but will admit to being a bit of a workaholic.
I love my country, particularly Ontario’s north and I feel a connectedness to this city, province and country that I feel would be a huge void if it was absent from my life. I have a love/hate thing with the city I live in but I have a lot of trouble imagining living anywhere else.
I am a bit of a hobbyist. I like to try new things some stick, many do not make it beyond an initial interest. The things that have stuck are ATVing (four wheeling to you American folk), Geocaching (although a knee injury has slowed me a bit), hiking, camping, and reading. I’m sure I’ve forgotten something but there it is.
I cannot go further here without mentioning that I am a gamer (of the video gaming variety). I love gaming, and I love the games industry. In particular I do a lot of online gaming in virtual worlds. I’ve done everything from playing the games, to working for the companies who make them and working in the media that covers them. I spend less time these on all of the above but deep down gaming will always be my number one when it comes to how I spend my downtime.
I am an Atheist (go ahead and hide your babies, although I promise I won’t eat them). My reasons for this are many and complex but to put it simply: I feel I do not need to live a good life for the threat of what might happen in the end. I feel I should be good because that is the right thing to do not because a dusty tome written by committee tells me to be.
I’m a hard person to know and an even harder person to get close to. I know many of you reading this will be friends who I have not spoken to in a long time and I want you to know likely I miss your friendship and it’s not you, it’s me – I put so much work in to my very tight circle of family and a hand full of friends I have in the past and will in the future miss some chances to be close to those just on the outside of the circle. It is one of my few life regrets. So I apologize.
I live every day to it’s fullest, am an eternal optimist and likely will make a joke at an inappropriate time (and I bet you laugh).
