About Me
In Chicago (boystown)... Dominant / aggressive TOP - (Yes I will go from mild to kinky with no notice) -- CJ likes to have fun, watch movies old and new, read, do daily workouts and travel in and out of the country. CJ has been to over 20 countries and 45 states.
If you were to describe CJ... He's an honest and trustworthy man who is full of vigor but can act like an adolescent at times. He is very blunt and has this "in your face" honesty. That is the New Yorker in him (he grew up in New York - Long Island). If he doesn't like something he will tell you but also be prepared to take criticism but he also takes criticism well. CJ also loves humor... dirty, intelligent, fun, nasty humor (long time listener of Howard Stern). A good vomit or shit joke will always make him laugh. CJ will be sarcastic and can be down right mean with his humor and conversations but it is always in jest. If you are offended well he just doesn't give a shit, UNLESS... he knows he's wrong. He will ALWAYS apologize if he knows he is wrong. CJ has that maturity to him. CJ is very well educated and has a Masters degree, he tries to learn languages, and likes to be relevant with social cultures, politics, and other interests.
Education & Work
Education: Masters Degree
College/University: Yes I finished...
Religion: Raised Roman Catholic and went to Catholic elementary / high school.
Political Views: Socially Liberal, Fiscally Conservative Independent. I have voted for both a Democrat and Republican.
