today I will begin to update my portfolio to better facilitate my message, mission statements galore and some pages will be deleted, i hope this works.
Today when I checked the status on my weebly page, and it reminded me of a term we used to say in the Army 'tits up'. When you find a satellite it looks like two lumps, well today the traffic on my site this week resembled what I would look for when trying to track the satellite, has nothing to do with anything but it was a great memory.
A week ago today I took the biggest leap that have ever taken in myself and today I am a bit nervous, did I make enough of an impact to get to the next level or am I gearing up for some heart break in the near future. Nervous and scared as I am I am glad that I took the chance on myself, it was an experience and I feel that I did a good job. Still waiting for a response is difficult and I feel like calling them to know a for certain answer so I will just wait, in suspense, like a crazy person, until week 3 ... or 4.
Interesting, I do not feel that nervous but I defiantly feel my nerves staring to get excited because tomorrow it is do or die time trying to get this money for the next 30 + days. I hope that my family and friends all have my back and share my post so much that it starts to hurt. Although I am worried because I put myself out there like the poster boy of PTSD (hopefully people see me as the recovered version).
I started a Facebook page today and before noon I already had 50 likes. I posted a spin around of ebony and a promise to release a spin around of Just-In if we hit 100. I am feeling really good right now and I hope this momentum carries on.
Since I graduated from Westwood College in January of this year I have had more free time to work on my projects, still I realize that I need a lot of help. unfortunately to get help you have to have the one thing that I always lack, money but I think I have a solution. I have been entering myself into contest after contest, mostly film, in hopes of winning one of them to generate a little money. The one thing that keeps me moving forward is that I can see the end of the tunnel, still I can't do it by myself and that's why I will continue to work my butt off to win one of these competition.
A few days ago I posted a few new things to my you tube page, nothing special just updates on what I had to turn into my teacher but I did not think that it deserved to be posted on this portfolio page. Although almost a decade ago I decided to write a book after I got out of the military and I felt that WAS important to post on my portfolio page. I created a Miscellaneous page to add things that add to my features weather it be certificates, team participation, volunteering or even my past accomplishments like writing a novel. I know that not many people read this section but I still wanted to provide people with a sense of my personality. Once you get to know me this section will hopefully feel like I am talking to you because that is the goal of a blog . . . . . I think.
This is my first attempt at making a blog and I hope that I will bring a positive outlook on myself and my projects. I am a very outgoing person that likes to accomplish their goals because I do not have time to sit around and wait until opportunities to fall at my feet. I have done storyboards in the past, done some freelance animation and modeling as well as many other accomplishments but the most recent and my most proud achievement is the creation of the Indie Gaming Company called Yawl Krazy Games. 2 years ago I took that awkward step and moved to the big city of Los Angeles where I can thrive and figure out my place. During my starving artist period I was pursuing my second degree, this one in Video Game Design which I will be earning this December. As I continue to figure out how to properly add things to my blog so it is a reflection of my personality and my work, you will see my site morph into something great. Stay tuned.

A lot of my recent work is focused on games for a personal indie company in the middle of developing our first games. This is a place that I will blog when we or I accomplish goals that will help me on the way in becoming successful. . . . . . And no I am not a real doctor.
