The Real Deal
G e n e r a l
Who am I behind the avatar? Dare you spoil the mystery? Then read on my curious friend...
I am a college graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Design, but I dreaded the idea of working in a cubicle and doing projects for others, so I chose a different path.
I n t e r e s t s
I love comedy, action and horror. I draw a lot, I like to play games, write and watch movies. Role playing online is fun for me, and a great way to get my mind off of things, but I don't do it all that often.
I've watched a lot of anime but Yu Yu Hakusho is the only one I really follow a fandom for. Other animes I really liked are Get Backers, Black Blood Brothers, Rurouni Kenshin, and Avatar the Last Airbender. As for games, I follow Final Fantasy, (really love FFVI) Pokemon, Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon, amongst many others.
Married with Children is my favorite sitcom, but I also love catching some others on rare occasions like Family Matters, My Name is Earl and Scrubs.

I like to draw, and I do work for Zantarni and the conventions I attend. I enjoy chatting in many forms online, either on online messengers, threads, other websites, or in Gaia Towns. I like video games, but rarely have time for the any more. I absolutely love my Nintendo DS Lite. Sometimes I play zOMG and have reached level 10 there. I am new to working with video, but I find it fun, and even have my own YouTube account. I manage a Deviant Art account but am on there sporadically. I also enjoy conventions. I do it mostly for business since I can sell art, but cosplaying and meeting people with common interests is fun too.
F r i e n d s h i p
I am fairly open to getting to know new people, but I don't have the time I use to on committing to online time. I do have a lot of quirks however, and am not going to say I can get along with everyone. There are many people who've I've been friends with for years, and those are the ones who are very important to me.
F a m i l y
I don't have any blood or legal family, but I do look to the closest ring of friends as a substitute for an emotional family.
Although he is rarely on Gaia, MisterSpitt has acted like a father to me for years in real life, and I often refer to him as one. Empy, Waffles and Sosei are also like family to me, along with some others.
A p p e a r a n c e
Lots of people like to act like their style is entirely unique to them and don't need to be categorized. I am one of them. I wear what I want, I do what I want.
On Gaia I may throw my avatars into some weird outfits, and it doesn't really reflect my sense of personal style. I try to coordinate colors and styles together to create something visually interesting. If my avatar is cross-dressing, its not because me or my role as Jin are suppose to be thought of as cross-dressers. If I have on a skirt or something, it's just because I liked how my avatar looked in it.
P e r s o n a l i t y
I have a ISTJ personality. You'll find in many ways I could be compared to the cosplay I keep; but make no mistake, its not an acting routine. I fit the character in a very natural way, which makes it easy to do; but I am also an individual. I don't like being told what to do, but I do have a typically happy-upbeat attitude when I am around people I like. In cases I am around people I am not fond of, or on bad terms with, I can become snippy, short fused and make rude comments. I am the type to say what I am thinking bluntly, whether or not I think others will like hearing it, and often I never thought it out before saying it. I just don't have much tact, and I value honesty above all else. I may hold grudges silently. I am happy to warm up to people fast, but I safe guard myself. Something I really hate is when somebody treats or makes me feel like a subordinate. When that happens I sometimes get aggressive. When around people I like I can have a chipper disposition. I just like to play around and do silly/stupid things. I try and be a good friend and want to be supportive to the friends I care about. I try my best to be very considerate, and I feel bad when I don't do that well enough. Despite the fact I may not trust people easily, you may not know it, but a lot of cases I only end up believing every other word people tell me. I am more likely to trust a person who's upfront. Got a question? Ask it. It's a lot less annoying than people beating around the bush. I wont waste energy on petty hateful things... and find I am never opposed to rekindling an old friendship, if shown a little effort. Overall, I have a low tolerance for drama or disrespect, but I am also easy going enough I can forgive and get over things.
