Ad Astra Per Aspera.
That's the motto for me to live by. My Story began in 1992 in Redondo Beach, California, born to two Navy Officers. Over the years, I lived the vagabond lifestyle of the child of military parents. Australia, England, Brazil, Japan, Canada, and Germany are the countries I lived in during my travels, and I visited many more during my time. I have no idea how I got stuck in Indianapolis, but the pops and mom are retired now, and I'm stuck here until I commission. I'm a student at IUPUI and an ROTC Cadet with IUPUI's ROTC Battalion (Capital Warriors Hooah!) I'm also a Soldier in the Indy National Guard, but on extended furlough since funding is dry - the State can't afford to pay me, so I'm out of a job for the time being.. I'm the science nerd who's big into politics and debate. I'm into everything really. Intelligence is a necessity, and I do prefer a certain threshold for women to meet or exceed physically. I'm pretty taciturn and aloof. I like to consider myself a man of wit, a rogue who gets by on his boyish charm. My dream is to be a Military Intelligence officer in the United States Army, and beyond that, to obtain a career in the government. I love the outdoors, but I'm more of the hiker, solitary nature lover. I love the exotic locales that provide adventure and discovery, and I am an animal lover to the core. I'm a city boy; there's just a certain life and energy to the city, a feeling of being in the wild despite the environment that encompasses it. Life is best accomplished at a headlong and breakneck pace, and to give it a swift pat on the back (and a quick kick in the ass) is the only way to plow forward.
