About Me

I'm Canadian, loves spending time with my wife and kids & our pets. Hobbies include music, books, photography, movies, for starters. Life's too busy, so enjoy what time you do have.


I have been working a lot of hours lately, so my ratings have been behind. I do promise everyone on swap-bot this : I ALWAYS send and I ALWAYS rate. No exceptions.

BONUS : If anyone can guess where my avatar is from, I'll send you 2 mix CD's as a bonus! Hint: MUSIC

Congrats to Cupcakecalamity & WthOutMeat for guessing correctly!

(However, the contest is still open!)

Favorite Music

For music, I like all types except for thrash metal or industrial as it is called, I'm not really fond of hard-core rap music or opera or accordion either. Everything else I'm game for. For swap, I really enjoy mixes. For instances, if it's about 60's music, I like all types - a whole range or different artists. Compilations are the best, it gives you a whole range of a particular genre.

Favourite Colours

For colours, my favourites are black, blue, red, my least favourites are mauve, pink, violet.

Favorite Books

I love to read - I'd have to say my favourite authors are Sue Grafton, Jim Butcher, Robert Asprin, Gregory McDonald, and some of Terry Brooks. I guess it's mostly a mixture of light science fiction/fantasy, and also mystery thrown in.

Favorite Movies

All time favourite movie would have to be the movie 'Alive', A number of other favourites include 'Tremors', 'Aliens','Shawshank Redemption', 'Seven Samurai', 'Equilibrium', 'Diggstown', and Lord of The Rings trilogy.

Favorite Television

My favourite show of all time is 'Mythbusters', I'll go out of my way to catch that show. A number of other favourites include shows like 'Rick Mercer Report', 'Corner Gas', 'Little Mosque on the Prairie', 'Scrubs' , 'Cheers', CSI/Law & Order' , 'Top Gear', 'The Dresden Files' and am a fan of brit-coms like 'Allo, Allo', 'Are You Being Served?' 'Red Dwarf', Monty Python' and that's about it.

Favorite Crafts

I love the art of origami, although I've never taken it up myself. Stained glass and intricate embroidery also interest me, as well as modern day art such as tattoo design, for instance. I'm also a fan of paintings, from seascapes to fantasy paintings (Boris Vallejo), to great photography like Ansel Adams and great amateur photography.


(Did I mention I love dragons?)

Favourite Sweets

I love chocolate, white chocolate not as much. Caramels are great as well as toffee, and exotic and unique chocolates are preferred over store-bought ones. I'm not much of a fan of bitter or dark chocolate, preferring the regular kind. Other great sweets for me include real maple syrup, red licorice, jolly rancher candies, just to name a few.


NOTE : I'm ALWAYS interested in music swaps - Private swaps are most welcome, feel free to contact me anytime!
