I am an intelligent and kind individual who sometimes needs to keep his idealistic elitism in check. I have the confidence of my convictions which sometimes borders on arrogance (at least I'm aware of some of my faults). I'm loyal to those who share a similar moral code of compassion, understanding, and tolerance. I believe in the importance of strong family and empowered friends.

I'm in no means a techno savvy person and have a very limited knowledge of the internet world, so this will be a learning experience that will give me an opportunity to try something new and different!
