|About Me:||Just finished my degree at Auckland University. I helped start a debating club at high school, competed at high school and university level in several national and international tournaments, and hope to settle down a bit now. Send me a challenge and I'll gladly take you on! Do not be dissuaded by my personal stance on various issues as I argue both ways on pretty much all topics. In fact I'm sometimes stronger arguing for the side I disagree with. Not sure how that works but never mind.|
|Activities:||I am a web/software developer. My degree is a bachelor of commerce, majoring in marketing and management. In my spare time I like to read books, play games like chess, compose music, code stuff, and of course debate!|
|Beliefs:||That I am the single most awesome person ever. Nah, you're cool too.|
|Books:||All of my uni textbooks.|
|Movies:||Lord of the Rings. Pretty much our national film. I'll say the Hobbit trilogy as well even though it hasn't come out yet.|
|Music:||Listening to my own compositions on repeat for hours.|
|Quotes:||Violence never resolves anything|

Equal rights to all - equal rights in education, equal rights in taxation, equal rights in representation ... equal rights in every respect.
-Sir George Edward Grey

In his recent interview, Airmax offered to debate other candidates on why they would make a better president. Therefore, here I am to make my case!Hopefully we can have a good, quick debate and give everybody a better overview of where we stand and why we differ in the process.I'll leave this first round for Airmax to accept, and then we can let the real fun begin! ...

Welcome one and all to the grand finals of the second ELO tournament.
