    I am a male model who has done a lot of work around the world and in Italy. I recently graduated college with a finance degree and great stats (3.9 GPA). I'm willing to do whatever it takes to save my country from fiscal disaster. And I promise I will be enthusiastic in our encounter.

    Complete and utter discretion is a must.
