I'm genuine, I work hard, and I am passionate about what I do. I speak quietly, but that being said, I'm definitely not soft-spoken, so don't let my demure exterior fool you. I've been told I'm "intellectually ferocious" (seriously), and I'm inclined to agree.
Public service is something I really value; I moved to New Orleans for undergrad post-Katrina because I wanted to help rebuild, and I came to Philly because there is no shortage of schools and students for me to help out while I'm getting my degree. Some call me idealistic, but on the contrary, I'm very realistic--I just have a big heart.
I am looking for someone who knows what he wants in life and works hard to get it. Someone who can pick up on, and dish out, sarcasm. Someone who is a gentlemen, because I don't care how independent women get-- chivalry need not die. Someone I can challenge and who can challenge me.
