Hey there! I hope you are enjoying your day as much as I am mine. SB is such a beautiful place! I am such a huge fan of sunny days and beautiful scenery. I enjoy being outside and active more than just about anything. Before SB I was living in Whistler, BC - enjoying "the good life", playing in the mountains. I moved to SB for school; as much as I enjoyed the mountain lifestyle I wanted to try something more professional. I have a degree in mechanical engineering. I love creating things - I do a bit of art and photography - and have a knack for the maths which is one of the reasons I ended up as an engineer. I love the idea of creating something functional, with pleasing aesthetics and tactility that will improve people's lives and generate revenue for a company, and to do it in a sustainable way. That's kind of me in a sense - I believe in a holistic approach to life.
I'm currently in the process of finishing up my PhD in materials science. My original plan was to get my BS degree and then go back to the ski and snowboard industry but they literally made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I love adventures and getting my PhD was one I couldn't pass up. I will brag and say we have the #1 program in the country. It's been an amazing experience and I'm really excited about getting my degree but I admit, am even a bit proud, that I don't fit in in grad school. One of my favorite complements is 'not being very engineer like'. Absolutely no disrespect to engineers but it's just not me.
I'm looking for a real partner in life. Someone I share values with - who is passionate and curious for all parts of life. I want to travel to a distant country and go climb a mountain with you, cook up delicious meals from the farmer's market together, hear your opinion on political issues, cute animals and triple corks. We will have stimulating conversations about everything. We will share and our well-formed opinions, in sometimes heated discussions, but always with a smile and an open mind. We'll meet eyes with passion and admiration. We will almost constantly be making each other laugh. And I will give you a foot massage whenever you like.
