My most recent experience as an act in almost, if not longer, a year. ACT 1 Theatre is a Non-Profit Theater company stationed in Sumner, WA. The production was performed in Puyallup’s Liberty Theater which is basically a historical landmark in the town. This was ACT 1 first production there — I could be wrong because I usually am — and the Liberty’s first production in more than 24 years, or at least since I’ve lived in this town. I felt very lucky to be part of this production since in some ways I felt recognized as an actor. Since graduating from Washington State University, it’s been tough to say the least. From my current unemployment, to the uncertainty of pursuing a graduate degree, and all in all indecisiveness of what’s next left me feel depressed and anxious. I am very thankful for ACT 1 welcoming me into their community, and hope more is yet to come with them. Please support their efforts by donating to their webpage, http://act1theatre.org/. From one who’s been living in this town for most of my life, it’s safe for me to say Puyallup isn’t center of culture, but it certainly has potential if the community can pull it’s act together.
I knew I had one more in me, I just didn’t know what that one would be. Thankfully I listened to youngster jiji’s Barbarossa EP again, and the featured track actually references my favorite anime, “Akira,” (1988) So I thought I’d do the same as I did with my first AMV.
Because of the more compact and less dynamic tempo of the song, I found it harder to edit the footage to the music more precisely, so I rather made it fit into the chorus, verses, and feature to the story of the film.
Hope you enjoy, and please support the original creators.

at the start of 2017, I began my internship with Distinction Music Management – a local agency dedicating to provide local music artists a performance and marketing outlet in Seattle. For a few months, DMM held monthly gigs at Lucky Liquor in Tukwila, but has retired that since then. This was our January lineup.
