What can I say about me? I love theatre, acting, writing and creating. I also do programming, work with 3d modeling programs (my book cover was created in one), and do websites. I'm extremely curious and inquisitive by nature so I'm naturally drawn to philosophy. While I like to do programming and websites I see that more as a necessary evil in the creative process. An artist unknown is the most difficult road to walk so the other side is always needed. 

I'm also trying to learn more about photography and the behind the camera workings so I can do more things on my own, or create things more within how I envision them. I've seen so many great writers and actors having less success than those less talented merely because they don't have the right connections or the money to do their projects as they should. I believe the life of an artist is a two edged sword. You can be great and hope and rely on those in power, who are focused merely on formulas and numbers to see that greatness in you, or you can figure out ways to go it alone as the rebel and hope that your work as an artist draws the true deciders of talent (the readers and movie goers) to you which inevitably draws those in power with them. Sadly this also relies on being an outgoing person, and most artists I know, including myself, tend to be introverted when not performing.

I love writing about relationships, such as the dynamic love/hate relationship that Spike & Buffy had in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Whether acting or writing I tend to drift towards those areas filled with a heavy drama or the push/pull of relationships, where a long gaze upon another in a story is told merely by the eyes and body as it gives way to their innermost thoughts and fears.

So last night after posting a link to the new chapter on Facebook, I noticed the generic pic didn't come through and it shows an empty pic slot type image instead.  Obviously if you actually have a b...
