"Live life to the fullest, fight for what you believe in, and go down swinging."
I strive to be a Renaissance Man, a Professional, and a Gentleman. I am a connoisseur of the art of self-Improvement. I am a German-American and support the original principles of America: freedom, liberty, individual rights, free-enterprise and capitalism.
I live a Quantified, Uncluttered, Minimalist, and Simplified, but a High-End Life. The less you have, the more you value it.
I work to sustain a high level of self-esteem, which is derived from living up to my values, principles and beliefs.
