I'm a master's student at UBC in transportation planning. I grew up in various neighbourhoods around Vancouver (also did my undergrad here) and have also lived in Toronto, Ontario.
When my eyes aren't welded to books, I dabble in super-8 filmmaking, write poems, watch Joss Whedon's assorted televisual delights, and like to listen to mopey Duncan Sheik music. I blog at (website hidden).
When I go to new places, I tend to avoid tourist traps and take an active interest in what daily life is like for my hosts in their cities — occupational hazard. If my curiosity is off-putting, I also like playing Tiny Wings on my iPhone.
