café for contemporary art

Hello, big bad intraweb. Nice to meet you.

I’m Tim and I’m a relatively new addition to the cafca squad of awesomeness. Look forward to an introduction to the rest of us very soon.

Some background on me:

I’ve been working at cafca for just over a month now and have experienced, among other things, what happens without the air conditioning, the disastrous results of a power surge that blew a fuse in our main grinder, and more than a few jittery spells (read: every time I’ve worked).

I just graduated from Handsworth Secondary and I’ll be off to McGill (Montreal) in the fall. With any luck I’ll be able to get a job working bar at one of the many world-class cafés there. I’ll be starting a blog of my own in a little while to keep the fam, friends, and everyone else up with life in Québec, but until then you can find me here 🙂 Hopefully we’ll get some cross-country dialogue going.

I’m a half-Aussie, quarter-Brit that loves coffee, politics, music, laughter, people, and life in general. This is why working at cafca really isn’t like work; I get to play with the Synesso and the Clover, chat about art and politics, and deal with people all day long. To do with the third, I came in with the idea of having live music played – Tyler had been thinking the same and he gave me the job of making it happen. The first cafca Acoustic Night happened last Saturday (the 27th), and they will be going all summer. Every Saturday, 6-9ish. You know where to find us….right? If not, it’s over in the sidebar somewhere —–>

(sidetrack) Speaking of that, if you’re a musician and would like to play, comment or leave an email and we’ll try and work something out.

There’s lot of other stuff I’m into – sports (ice hockey, specifically), the outdoors, reading, and the arts – I can’t dance to save my life but I love to act and do improv. I am/was a huge drama student (still figuring out the tense I should use for that) at Handsworth and I am proud to call myself a dramie.

I’m working two jobs right now, one at cafca – I’m working construction nearly full-time, and due to that I can only put in two shifts a week at the café. I’m there 2-10, Friday and Saturday. Stop by and say hi, I won’t bite! Promise!



LOL – vintage acronym – Lots of Love. Not to be confused with “lol”, which is teenspeak and means “laugh out loud”.
