All About John


I wanted to tell you about myself and about this website.

First, if you are looking for a Natalie Portman fan site that tells you all about her and her innermost thoughts and ideas, where she is and what she is doing… prepare to be horribly disappointed.  I am the worst Natalie Portman EVER!   I enjoy her performances.  I believe she is entitled to a private personal life.  And I think that she would probably be pretty cool to hang out with.

That said, I have been using the idea of a date with Natalie Portman as a reward for achieving a healthy lifestyle.  Originally it was simply weight loss, but like so many, I found healthy is not just a number on a scale.

I have also realized that lifestyle change includes a LOT more than just what I eat and how much exercise I get.  For me, at least, there is so much going on it all affects what I am trying to do.

I used to train in Judo and Jiu-Jitsu.  I was in the United States Navy and fought in the Gulf War. I am a musician.  I am attempting to make movies, although my route is unconventional.  I have a boxer named Fezzik.  I put on a lot of weight as I used to travel as a Field Service Engineer, repairing medical imaging equipment.  I lost a good amount when I switched jobs, and then gained a good amount of that back when I went back to school full time while working full time.  So let’s see what I can do going forward.

I am glad you are here.

Currently it appears that my goals will not be static.  Therefore, I am not sure I will ever be able to collect on that date.  If I ever do collect on that date, I fully expect to be stood up.  And I am okay with that.

This website is really a documentation of my journey.  Hopefully we will have fun along the way.  But I will always be as honest and open as I can be about what I am doing and going through.

Rock on,
