Main Strengths: Passionate about his work, has found a niche for his writing, perseverant.
Main Weaknesses: Hot-headed, bit of a drinker, not very well respected by most, conspiracy theorist.
Biography: (Minimum 2-3 paragraphs)
Other Info:

Born April 4th, 1968 into the East Hills neighbourhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to a distant Father and an overworked Mother, with that in mind, Peter always had a little too much time on his hands. When he wasn't causing trouble with the other kids, he found an interest with the news, keeping up with modern events, who's who in the political world. Boring stuff to just about anyone, but Peter found some enjoyment in it, finding heroes in the ranks of the Republican party, be it Reagen or the likes, he just knew that he wasn't a liberal.

When it came to schooling, Peter also found little success, known as rather roudy and a 'tough guy' the only classes that he seemed to find some success at was with welding and partly at English, and Journalism, with the former he would take an apprenticeship after highschool and begin his work, and with the latter he would practice and begin his passion; and truth be told, he was a decent welder, calming down from his shell he can point to just about any building and try and tell you that he had some part in constructing it, or repairing it, the story might change depending at which time you catch him in the bar.

"Married, divorced, twice", is all he'll talk about his short attempt at love, usually over some small quam, like politics. It was the election of Baharia that inspired him to go back to writing, even being featured in a vox populi in the local paper every once in a blue moon, most of the time heavily redacted, written in some blind rage mad at a world that seemed to go push down on the little guy, seeking to reclaim some sense of control he managed a short lived reign as a union rep, until comments brought him down. But, in spite of all that, he decided to go all in on his dream of becomming something of a journalist, and in the sense of the word, he's something, finding small readership, but readership none-the-less, he writes about politics and current events.

I have read and accept the rules of the roleplay: St. George Territory

Greetings and if I may say, thank you for applying to this RP. Whilst the overall app is of a truly exceptional nature, there are a few areas to work upon in order to build upon the app.

1: Unfortunately, it appears that you have placed the app biography in the other information section.

2: In addition, perhaps it might be wise to expand on his private life but explicitly make it clear that van Driel has a closely guarded private life as such?

3: I would suggest that you might want to specify where van Driel writes as a journalist, merely to make it clear from the outset.

4: It would perhaps also be wise to expand the app biography somewhat.

Overall though, this is a solid foundation for the app, and I look forward to seeing it develop.

I know its better to leave the Forward Party alone. But at least one of my characters is enraged by his speech on drugs. I'm trying to decide who would tweet.

I just love how much free publicity I get. 8)

BTW, is anyone interested in doing a Fox News interview of my character?

Didn't he literally block both the man and the party before writing up both of those tweets and getting and email from the Senate Leader to stop?
