Hello Everyone.

I'm asking for your help to go to stunt school at the International Stunt School in Seattle Washington. I'm a filmmaker and when I was a film student, we had a project involving an aerial stunt. I volunteered to safety test the harness so our actress would be safe and our school wouldn't have liability issues. As fate would have it, the actress couldn't fulfill the role and we didn't have time to recast. So the Director agreed to let me take the role. I never dreamed that it would put me on a path to one of the most amazing career passions I've ever been exposed to. While flying through the air, I knew I wanted to do this for a living and knew I would have to train really hard. That's me soaring in the photo.

At International Stunt School, we will train in the following areas: 
UNARMED COMBAT
PRECISION DRIVING *
FIRE BURNS
WIRE WORK *
AIR RAM HIGH FALLS
MINI TRAMP
MARTIAL ARTS
WEAPONRY
RATCHET FOOT FALLS & ROLLS
STAIR FALLS
RAPPELLING
HARNESS RIGS
ACTING THE ACTION

Your donations will go toward tuition and housing. But your contributions will have an enduring benefit to future actors, fellow stunt performers, and the film industry as a whole. Who knows, you might even be helping to mold the next on screen super hero. So I am introducing my super hero character brand, "White Lotus" among your reward levels. Call me "White Lotus" because "I emerge in a pristine conditon from the murkiest of waters."  Cheers and many thanks for helping me pay it forward.

Good morning Everyone. Friends are asking if I'm still pursuing stunt training. The answer is a resounding YES! Even though I missed the once-a-year training this year, there is always next year. So if you are still interested in contributing, your support is greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

Good morning everyone. I hope you are having a great day. As I was looking through my wallet, I came across a piece of folded paper tucked away. As I unfolded it, I smiled. It was a check that I had written to myself back in November of 2011. In the memo, I had written "For stunt services rendered." Now 3 years later, I find myself facing the opportunity of a lifetime to attend Stunt School starting Monday. I'm placing it in God's hands and trusting Him to be able to go this year. :)

I've teamed up with awesome AZ Artist, Golden Crandall, to bring you White Lotus! “I emerge in a pristine condition from the murkiest of waters”. So, yeah! Send, me, White Lotus, to Stunt School this year and follow my journey as I aim to debut White Lotus at Comicon next year!

Hi Everyone. Here's an update on my crowd funding progress. I spoke with admissions and they said today is the deadline but they will hold a space for me until the first day of school (July 28th.) What a blessing that is! I am asking you: If I have blessed your life in some way over the years, be it through my comic strip, "Joppa" or my journalism in which I've promoted your goals or business & told your story; If I've given you a smile or laugh or kind word when you were down; inspired you with my crazy ideas that anything is possible; If I've supported your crowd funding campaign the moment you told me about it; If I've cried for you & laughed with you; If I've supported your film project through word of mouth and networking; If I've blessed your church through praise dance and taught your children the art and joy of praise dance, I am asking you for your help. It's my nature to encourage. Now the Encourager needs encouragement. Please donate today. Thank you in advance for your donations. All amounts are accepted. Send me, White Lotus, to stunt school!!
