About Me:
I am an actor / singer / writer / director / producer living in Shenzhen. Like most foreigners who have settled here (I settled in June 2004) I pay the bills by teaching English. I currently teach for "So English" in LuoHu and BaoAn. In 2006, I worked for Jade animation here in SZ. I did clean up art there for almost a year until I went into full time teaching mode (because I have a wife and beautiful daughter to feed). I am listed at the Internet Movie Data Base (imdb) for writing the original script for the film “Deadly Species” and doing clean-up art for Disney’s “Super Robot Monkey” television show. I have written a novel titled “Tales Of The Vampire: The Vampire Irregulars” as well as a children’s book “Jimmy and His Teacher Save The World”. I am currently shopping my film “Ghost House” as well as several projects that I have written for film and TV in the West. I like acting and singing. I have done quite a bit of voiceover work here in SZ for short animated films and I am even an English voice at a Chinese theme park now. I have sung on cruise ships in Legend of Rock shows and I have sung here in Shenzhen at Spring Festival banquets and at the Polo Restaurant (back in its hey-day). Recently, people have challenged my claims that I have done everything that I have written here. To "retort" I have posted many pics here to backup my claims which anyone can view.
November 2010 - My daughter is all over the RuluKids website as well as on the walls of department stores around China (friends have called us saying they saw our daughter's picture in Beijing, Shanghai and Guanzhou). We have seen large ads of her for Rulu Kids clothes in Shirbles here in Shenzhen and at the Shenzhen airport. Also, my Super Education is moving into a larger space here in Luo Hu and we just opened a satellite SE in Bai Hua. I am currently putting the finishing touches on my latest novel a dark comedy read called "The Bachelor's Guide To Post Apocalyptic Success". That and a new bunch of videos so people can see my performances over the years.

The absolute worst treatment to a good customer.

Posted on August 20, 2013 at 9:05pm 11 Comments

Folks, I have to write about a very unpleasant time that I had at a local pub in Shekou. I won't say their name but I will say that the letters G & D are in the name of this establishment.

Now... let me begin by saying that I was a regular and loyal Monday night customer at this "hang-out" because the Western food was good,the waitresses were VERY nice and Monday was their two for one food special. Buy something and get a second item of equal or lesser value for free. Each week,…


Is There Other Life Out In Space?

Posted on January 14, 2008 at 6:53pm 1 Comment

Since bringing up the ghost question, I have to ask you --- Do you believe there is life out in space? Do you think it is conceivable, that we are not alone in this universe and that there are others out there somewhere? If so, why haven't they come and said hello to us?

Do You Believe In Ghosts?

Posted on January 9, 2008 at 2:50pm 9 Comments

Someone here brought up an interesting discussion and I wanted to localize it a bit more. Many people in this world believe in ghosts, the spirits of dead people that hang around for some unknown reason. For the sake of discussion, do YOU believe in ghosts and/or do you have a ghost story that you would like to tell?

Is "G.I. Joe" a good role model? I think NOT!

When I was a kid, Hasbro decided to create a doll that boys could play with. It was an action figure called G.I. Joe, actually created in 1964 -- the year I was born. This military doll with guns, grenades and whatever other weapons he could get into his Kung-Fu grip was an overnight success and like his female counterpart -- the voluptuos and materialistic Barbie, the focus on having a G.I. Joe was to get more clothes and items than your friends had. In 1969, Hasbro decided to change Joe's…

In China, one set of books has outlasted all of the others on the shelf (it seems) - The New Concept English books. Most Chinese who are studying English are very familiar with these books. Lesson 1 -- "Excuse me, is this your handbag? Pardon? Is this your handbag? Yes, it is."

How do you feel about these books? Do you really love them? Do you really hate them? Why? What's good about them? What's bad about them?

I have heard different opinions on them and I want…

Nice to meet you Rory. Looks like you have lots of fun with your work and teaching. Are you aware of any writing critique groups in Shenzhen? I'm interested in joining one or starting one in the OCT LOFT area.

Hi Rory, I guess you missed the news, I have moved my family to Canada upon being transfer by my company. So it will be a little far for me to go to see your show.

Props to you for helping at the Freakshow.
