Yep. That’s me, practicing with butterfly swords. I’ve been trolling this Earth for many a moon, finally settling in Austin, Texas, where I met and married the love of my life. Before I started doing these reviews, I was/am the writer of the indie comic book El Gato Negro, which follows the adventures of a hispanic superhero fighting crime in South Texas. The first issue was released worldwide in 2005, and you can now read it online here: http://www.webcomicsnation.com/elgatonegro/elgatonegro/series.php?view=archive&chapter=38687
I’ve gone back to college in order to get my degree in film, and I am nearly finished! I also became a practitioner of Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu, and currently practice at the Austin Kung-Fu academy under Santanu Rahman (a contributor to the website) , and I currently rank as a Red sash but I’m working my way toward my black sash. I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting quite a few celebrities, mostly through doing the comic book, but I’ve met more since doing the website! I got to shake Jackie Chan’s hand while attending a screening of Miracles (I still haven’t washed that hand yet) and even met and befriended James Hong, the villain from Big Trouble in Little China:
Amazingly enough, because of this I came within a hair’s breadth of actually writing an official comic book prequel and sequel to the film! He tried to purchase the rights from 20th Century, who refused to sell them, thus the project was dead in the water. I’ve lost track with James over the last seven years or so. I’d like to speak with him again. He and his daughter are some of the most gracious people you could hope to meet. She also works in the entertainment industry as a voice actor.
So that’s me in a tiny, tiny nutshell. So quit reading this and get back to reading some kick-ass reviews!
