Hi Anime Fans!!!
I'm happy to have found this site and even happier to be a member of it. I started to really watch Anime during my first year of High School. I am a huge mecha fan. At least 50% of my anime collection is dedicated to the mecha genre (And I have a massive collection lol). However I do branch off into other things like comedy, slice of life, drama etc. I'm actually pretty open to anything (yes even romance) so long as the story is gripping and the animation is clean. I do read manga once in a while but not as often as watching anime.
For all you interested in knowing a little bit about me here is a brief intro. I am Canadian and I live in Montreal. I am fluent in both English and French; however English is my primary language. I am currently working full time as a financial specialist for a laser eye surgery clinic. Yes, I used to wear glasses but had the laser surgery done two years ago (BEST DECISION EVER!!!). When I am not watching anime I am playing games on PS3 Xbox360 or PC. I'm am really laid back kind of guy and I am pretty easy to get along with. Most of my friends are anime fan freaks like me so we tend to do a lot of hanging out having anime marathons and what not. Don't worry I do get out lol!!! I like to party it up and be active. During the winter months I snowboard and during the summer I do a lot of swimming at my cottage.
I will try to be on the site as much as possible. I tend to be on this site during down time at work. I'll probably visit at least once a day if not more. Feel free to send me messages I love meeting new people and I love talking anime!!!
When I wrote this I forgot to mention what I studied in lol! When I was in school I got my degree in Creative Arts and specialized in film and photography. I love taking pictures and I love making movies. I have a great eye for that stuff and I have a love for developing my own film, but with everything going digital it's become expensive to keep that up. Still there is a certain beauty in watching a photo appear like magic when developing your pictures in a dark room ^_^ However I never really saw myself making a career out of it and branched off into Finance. Don't get me wrong, that doesn't stop me from loving it! I also like to draw. I mostly sketch anime but have done some landscapes as well as portraits.
Whenever I travel I have my sketchbook with me and I try to draw whatever really captures my eye. So far I have traveled in most of the provinces of Canada or at least driven through them lol! I have done some traveling in the USA but not as much as I’ve wanted to (Don’t travel as much now that I don’t live with my parents anymore). I have been to England, France, Italy and China. I have been down South to Jamaica, the Cayman Islands the Bahamas and Cozumel Mexico. Some of my most memorable vacations are a cruise up the Alaskan coast, my trip to Italy (my mom’s from Italy) where we started driving from the north, went down the boot to visit my mom’s hometown in the south and then drove back up to finish the trip in Venice, and of course my trip to China, I got to see the Great Wall and visit the Imperial palace and gardens among other things, it was one hell of a cultural shock lol
