Born in Quebec City in 1987, raised in Alberta between 1991 and 2011, now residing in Montreal. I speak/read/write french and obviously english. I am deciding on a third language to learn. I am a biophiliac and a secular-humanist. I refrain from killing anything that does not directly threaten my well-being such as spiders, bees, mice, etc... I would say that I am a libertarian but I don't believe in absolute free will. My friends would say that I am a flaneur. I broke free from the chains of Christianity at age 12 and have since been making my way through the model of reality that science presents. I am deeply interested in anthropology and will admit to having founded and maintained friendships purely on an experimental basis. I would say that I am deeply entrenched in my personal connection to music in fact I may have developed a very mild form of obsessive compulsive disorder that manifests depending on the music in my immediate environment. I seek intertwining or overlapped time signatures, contrasting musical textures and clever melodic creativity in my search for the most fulfilling audio-cocktails. I love to eat and it would seem that I have for as long as anyone has been around to notice. In this day and age in North-America, you can buy ingredients to experiment with cuisine from every corner of the world at your local grocery store. Take that McCrap out of your mouth and taste a sensation! My accomplishments include acquiring a pilot's license (for recreational and personal use only), quitting cigarettes and surviving through the depression-inducing social diarrhea that we call the educational system. Seeing as I am fairly disenchanted by the "career" procedure as well as "mainstream" culture entirely, I hope to travel in the near future.
the phenomenon of life and the state of humankind.
Humans can separate reality from anthropomorphism, but anthropomorphism cannot separate from humans.
If you are reading my profile, chances are that you have something to say to me...
A very good friend of mine led me to this website and I was surprised by the valuable content of TED conventions and the network of speakers involved. As an intellectually awake tradesperson (when I originally landed on the site) I considered this place as my link into the scientific world. Now as a university student I consider it to be a source of inspiration and a break from my own subject matter.
