First and foremost, I'm an actor. Sometimes without a part to play, but always performing, reaching, trying to feel alive for a moment in the reflection of a role, a character to lose myself in, a fantasy, a day dream, a reality in a reality,a simulation in the simulation of life. I'm driven to express the creative musings echoing in my soul, and to revel in the attention from the expression of my true self.
My tagline is simple, but disjointed. I'm an actor, artist and athlete. Like so many other people, in the blind grandeur and immortal feelings of youth,I didn't set myself up to follow my dreams correctly. I thought I'd have more time and that opportunities would somehow find a way to me from passion alone (they didn't). Don't worry I'm not dying yet, I'm healthy, strong and full of motivation to kick some ass and make it happen.
I realize now, that little voice in my head, the one yearning to find creative projects, the one desperately seeking mediums for artistic self expressions, only got louder and louder. The more I put it off, the more I tried to avoid facing the fact that my trajectory in life was not inline with what I really wanted , the more I didn't follow it, the crazier I felt, the less full-filled, and the LOUDER that voice got (figuratively speaking, I don't actually hear voices). The time is now. This is the year we make it happen (and next year and the next after that).
So this one is for me.. haha, but it's also for you. For everyone who took a little while to get their life goals together, who had to work a little harder than everyone else and by pure worth ethic, desire and passion had to forge a way through after the initial path to their dreams was closed. This one's for you!
Actor and artist fit together nice, I create films, I write them, act, direct,produce and all other other buzz words you can tag yourself with when you make independent films. I visualize, I build worlds in the my dreams and then make them true (outside of my 9-5 hahah). The athlete part is the added on bit, but it all goes together to understanding me. Fitness has always been a part of my life, It channels my core warrior spirit, it keeps me strong, both literally (physical strength) and mentally by relieving stress and allowing me to focus on the now, to push myself beyond the discomfort to achieve an aesthetic ideal. Also, I work out every single day, so It's a good stable base for blogging and building the action star structure, I will showcase in future productions. Plus I just like it, haha. I'm always trying to do more, practice new things, and build a better body. You can join me on that journey as well.
The art of destruction is simpler than creation. So easy to destroy a world, but so hard to build a new one. Because of this, an artist usually must be a selfish person, driven to try and create in a world, that will almost certainly find it easier to destroy / judge/ tear down your creation than to live it, accept it, enjoy it or improve it. I engineer my own reality and before the brand of Sol Roth was dreamed up and I began this ascent or if this was a dystopian tale, descent into my story telling dreamscape, I was a failed artist. A failure in this sense that I wasn’t expressing myself in the way that I am innately driven to do. This is my epilogue, my beginning and my end. This is my immortality. My selfish obsession that placates my compulsive insanity and helps me stay motivated in my life.
In challenging times, when I'm faced with difficulties, crippling self doubt and the feelings of being overwhelmed, I re-read the comments and emails from my fans, I re-read all the messages from people who said they were inspired, entertained or touched by something I created. That gives me strength to push on and renews my willpower, drive and abilities. EVERY single fan and every comment is immensely appreciated. I couldn't do this without you. To my fans, thank you so much - You're all awesome!
