Detailed Info

From working in a furniture store whenever I got the chance, I was decently strong by the time I got to High School, my PE teacher noticed that and convinced me to join the Shotput team. I wasn't all that great at shotput, but I loved the weight training for it. At the end of Senior year I was benching 310, 5 lbs short of my goal, but that didn't bother me all that much due to a change of interest a year earlier. Spring of 2006, watching a video example of something called "Parkour" my friends Steve and Emanuel wanted to try. I instantlly shot down the crazy flips and roof jumps, Watching this though, I noticed smaller, simpler movements that were still looked fun and cool, the basic vaults and whatnot. After watching/reading some tutorials, I went with my friends to a nearby school to try some vaults. Ever since then I've been training Parkour and Freerunning, gradually doing the things I though I could never do while watching that first video. Through that I've made friends that train Breakdancing and Tricking, and I've started training those as well.

I've been building websites since the 4th grade, starting with basic sitebuilders like freeservers and such. After a while I picked up Microsoft FrontPage and played around with that for a while. In Jr. High I was taught HTML, ever since then I have always preferred hard coding sites, this entire site for example was made with just Notepad and Photoshop. I picked up graphics and video editing around 6th/7th grade as well, more or less rotating between web, graphics, and video as my main focus for a few years after that. In High School I got the chance to refine those skills, I already knew how to do everything the web design class would teach me, so the teacher let me experiment with Flash for that entire semester. Other than that I took a few computer multimedia classes which helped me actually get some guidance behind graphics and video. The last thing I got from High School was a bit of computer repair knowledge, enough to be able to build my own computer, which I did towards the end of the year. My first year of college was pretty much just a bit more web design, the main thing I took from it was CSS, which makes coding sites so much easier. Since then I've pretty much just experimented with video editing for my Parkour videos and such.

Video Games
I started off playing Mario on the good old NES, eventually upgrading that to Super Mario 64 on the N64 (Wide gap, but I had a lot of fun with that NES). After that I just kept going with the console collection. At the time of writing this, my collection is as follows: Atari, NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Wii, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance, Gameboy DS, Sega GameGear, Sega Dreamcast, Playstation 2, Playstation 3, Xbox, Xbox 360. I've had Xbox live since the beginning of 2004, starting off with Mech Assault and Counter-Strike, the moving on to Halo 2, Modern Warefare, and various Guitar Hero games. I never really played all that many computer games, but a few that I have played are Maple Story, League of Legends, and a bit of Everquest.

Every day after Kindergarden I used to run home to catch Dragon Ball Z back when they used to show it on Fox. Not even knowing what anime was at the time, I didn't particularly expand past that for many years to come. Once Toonami started doing some serious work bringing anime in, and especially with the introduction of Adult Swim later on, I eventually branched out to many other series, though Dragon Ball Z still ranks at the top for me. In 2005 I got a phonecall from a friend asking if I wanted to go to Anime Central, an anime convention just a few towns over that weekend (It was Friday at the time). Figuring I had nothing else to do, I went with him and 2 other friends to this convention the next day. I got a chance to witness Cosplay, which was a surprise at first, I honestly had no idea what to expect at the convention at all. We were able to get an actual preview into the industries that release anime through their pannels, and met a bunch of cool people. On top of that I took 2nd out of 152 in the Halo 2 tournament. After such an awesome first experience, my friends and I have attented ACen every year since, as well as many other cons.
