I'm not Jackie Chan's brother

About Me

A person is not defined by their experiences, but by their perceptions of them. When I lived in Beijing, a few of the locals told me that they knew I wasn’t from around town, because I walked with far too much confidence. “You walk like a North American,” they told me. I took it as a compliment.

I’m an actor, which is to write that I am at my most creative when I am in front of a camera living someone else’s life. I’m very physical. I have a strong on-screen presence. I’m just playing myself with certain characteristics dialed up and others dialed down. It is my belief that it is the actor’s job is to show the audience what it is to be human.

I’m Canadian of Chinese extraction. I’m an explorer. I’m fueled by seeing the world and reveling in its diversity. I have a keen interest in martial arts. I’m trained in advanced stage combat. I love learning new skills, which has led to the acquisition of a very eclectic skill-set, which includes building computer systems, falconry, firearms, and web design. Je peux parler français, mais ce n’est pas parfait. 我也会说中文, 但是有口音.

I’m the superhero of tomorrow.
