Hey, I’m Alastair!

I grew up in Ottawa, then studied philosophy and history in Toronto for university. Now I work as a magazine publisher. This leaves less time than I'd like for reading, but here are some books on my shelf, since AirBnB suggests it's the kind of thing people like to know: The Master Switch, Coming Through Slaughter, The Wellness Syndrome, The Invisibles, Philosophical Investigations and The Master and His Emissary. I bicycle all year round, and have just started playing softball, badly.

In terms of travel, I get to NYC whenever I can, to see friends, theatre & art. Other places I’ve been in the last few years include Winnipeg, Fez and Shanghai. If I can, I prefer to go somewhere and stay as long as possible. That’s one reason I’ve got very fond memories of a beautiful old town called Schwaebisch Hall, near Stuttgart, where I lived for a few months.

No pets, although I spend time with my brother’s yellow lab whenever I get the urge. And I’m fairly allergic to cats.

Mostly, though, I hate writing bios. But please feel free to ask, if I’ve left out anything that matters to you!
