I'm an engineer and IT consultant in the Ottawa area.
I'M CRAZY ABOUT NATTO ! II'S YUMMY.
I love food!
I practice Intermittent Fasting, a form of calorie restriction. I started this 3 years ago. Calorie restriction is the only method of lifespan extension proven to work across a wide range of species.
I've also became mostly vegetarian (vegan + fish) though I will eat meat on special family occasions like Thanksgiving or Christmas.
My favorite food is Chinese roast pork.
The best meal I ever had was a roasted sucking pig in the mountains of southern Cuba.
My wife is French and loves crepes.
I also got into sous vide and built my own immersion circulator, PID controlled, in a picnic cooler. We use it at least weekly.
I'm also an avid gardner. I grow unusual stuff like very hot peppers for fun, and tomatoes, beans , cucumbers and the regular stuff too.
We also do square foot gardening.
I'm also passionate about bicycles and have built custom cargo bikes, for fun and to commute to work on.
We have three children. The two girls are vegetarians. My son is a meat eater.
