About Me

I'm currently a freelance screenwriter, actor, and novelist. Just recently started an event planning business and have a huge project that's being unveiled summer-fall of 2007 in Washington DC. I should be moving to DC pretty soon. I'm also a college student majoring in acting, art, writing, and history. Probably going to minor in international studies, religion, and political science. I'm also a US Army Reservist and a former substitute teacher. My arse almost got sent out to the Middle East. I got about 2 more years in the service. I also have a background in mixed martial arts, military martial arts, and classical martial arts. My former instructor is a former UFC fighter and a current judge in Pride Fighting Championships that takes place in Japan. Whenever I want to kill time or come up with storyline/character ideas, I hang out on a roleplaying board known as Arcane Academy. My character's name on the RPB is The Director. If you're from Storylink, hit me up on AA. Arcane Academy I roleplay as Keith Lucifer - "Devil's Right Hand" on PHS #259. PHS #259 I'm also the admin known as Dr. Xing of the role-playing board known as Mugen Hall. Mugen Hall Role-playing boards are pretty much a good way to develop characters if you can't afford to buy character development software at the moment. I have a deep interest in politics, religion, current events, life in general. I am somewhat active/interested in politics but I'm not a person that lives, eats, and breathes that stuff. But I'm a person that enjoys studying and living life in general. My life experiences and my imagination are what fuels my writing. It's what inspires me to write. I enjoy telling stories whether they are real life stories or any other stories in general. I've lived a pretty interesting life so far. Currently an Army Reservist that was almost sent out to Iraq. I worked as a substitute teacher for almost 2 years, which was pretty grueling work; I was the youngest and only Asian sub in the county of Florida I live in. I also worked the John Kerry Campaign of '04, that was a pretty interesting experience. Spent most of '05 honing my screenwriting skills; still honing them in. In summer of '04, I took on a small role for a student film at Florida Metropolitan University's Orlando Campus called "Street Wok'n." I was supposed to do voice work for this studio in Tampa but I think the project got cut due to the barrage of hurricanes in '04. That pretty much motivated me to take a deep interest in environmentalism and alternative fuel sources. I currently have one screenplay set to be filmed Winter of '07 and another screenplay being talked over at the moment. I'm also a huge anime and videogame fan. And music is my life blood. The type of music you listen to defines what kind of person you are. What I watch usually depends on my mood. It ranges from Japanese Anime, shows on G4 which I feel the channel pretty much sucks because they took off the videogame shows, a few reality TV shows such as The Apprentice, to a good indie film or documentary. I usually watch stuff on Bravo, A&E, CNN, MSNBC, Spike TV, G4, and Cartoon Network. You can also find me on Helium. TFactor

Goal

My goal is but a simple sounding one: to make a huge impact in the world in whatever positive and ways possible. Remember nothing is impossible and impossible is nothing. All things worth striving for in life are never simple. It's basically the path you take is what matters than just going from point A to point B. Also, to fight for the underdogs. They're the ones who need us the most. Basically bring hope and such to others. No need to be negative. Way too much negative energy in the universe. Why create more negativity? For this year, I got a few goals. But I can't reveal them yet.
