I am currently seeking employment in Japan. At the moment, I teach English reading comprehension and writing composition in Shanghai, China on my second year. I am also a current graduate student at Shanghai University and I am working solely on a thesis paper. I graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Historical Studies and a minor in Political Science.

In the future

I hope to cross over into a career which can help foster and improve my writing skills in a major way. I want to make a contribution to foreign markets with my abilities to write and edit in the English language. Most importantly, I want to join an awesome company to which I can belong and call family.

Yscariot is based on a near two-decade-long story-in-the-making about a kid turned superhero after inheriting a power to save the Earth (Alternate Universe) from oncoming attacks from an alien seeking the "[Ultimate] Cosmic Power". Numerous projects were made over the years with side-stories of characters involved in the series. The original six-part story was completed in 2002.
