    'Fundamentally' : used for a person?

    Greetings,

    I was merely wondering whether the adverb 'fundamentally' can be used to describe a person, or only concepts. For example:

    Although, as any activist from this epoch, David always remained unperturbed, or even cold, he fundamentally was a sensitive, caring person.
    I am here trying to express that the subject is essentially a person with strong feelings, even though it would not seem so.





    I look forward to your reply.

    In that context, "fundamentally" works.
