I'm Leo Fox, and welcome to my userpage.
I've been an Administrator here since February of 2011.
I am a male New Zealander-American (Kiwi-American, you might say, but I cannot really identify myself as an American as explained below), who had the terrible misfortune to live in Las Vegas, Nevada - but is now residing in Dunedin, New Zealand. I also have a strong dislike for disregard of the rules here, and the results of new users lashing out at more experienced users offering constructive criticism on articles. This, unsurprisingly, tends to result in the banishment of said user from the wikia, since they seem to run through civility warnings like a M134 through ammunition
It should be noted that if a critique I offer happens to be rather blunt. I don't tend to sugarcoat like they do on FF.net; but I'm usually easy to get along with, and I'm friendly enough - but I should note that I operate by the Scorched Earth policy. Go figure. Too long, didn't read: have some kind of interaction with me before making too critical a judgment on me. =]
Moving on to a brief biography on myself, I was born on Yakota Air Base on the outskirts of Tokyo, Japan to a military family, with my father serving as an Air Force Navigator on C-130E. As a result of this, I have been around the world (thanks to the United States Air Force ^_^), living in:
Japan (Yakota Air Base), March 1994 – December 1995
America (Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California), December 1995 – December 1997
Turkey (Izmir Air Base), December 1997 – January 2000
America again (Langley Air Force Base), January 2000 - March 2000
Germany (Ramstein Air Force Base), March 2000 – June 2003
Australia (Canberra, Australian Capital Territory), June 2003 – December 2006
America (Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada), 1 December 2006 - 22 August 2011
Due to my experiences overseas and the lack of time spent in the US in my childhood, I have found myself alienated from the American populace. The America I grew up hearing stories about no longer exists; the reality that is the United States of America today is but a shadow of its distantly past self. As a result, I cannot consider myself an American; feeling much more nationalistic (or patriotic; one of the two) towards New Zealand; my other homeland, and the one that I am much more comfortable and familiar with.
I left the United States, bound for the greener pastures (quite literally) of New Zealand on the 22nd of August, 2011. I arrived in New Zealand on the 24th of August 2011 at Auckland Airport, at 8:30 AM, before catching a plane later that afternoon to my final destination (so to speak) of Dunedin. Needless to say, my opinions are that I shall not miss the shithole I previously dwelled in. I shall remain here, and follow studies at the University of Otago (namely, obtaining a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Management) that will result in my commissioning into the Royal New Zealand Navy to handle logistical matters.
