'''Name''': David Z.\\
'''Location''': [[EverythingIsBigInTexas Texas]]\\
'''What I Do''': Make stuff, LetsPlay games, and theater tech.\\
'''Bio''': Around 2005-2008, I started making really [[RefugeInVulgarity raunchy]] and [[RefugeInAudacity bat-guano insane]] GarrysMod comics, including a 70+ page whopper called "The Gmod Experience 1-3". Then I took a break for a while, became a writing tutor, a playwright, a theater lights/sound operator, and as of 2011, I do [[{{Touhou}} Touhou Project]] and LoveHina related [[VirtualPaperDoll Walfas videos]], music, and more. Due to the [[ImprobablyFemaleCast nature]] of the videos I work on, [[CrossdressingVoices I tend to voice a lot of girls]], but I love doing it because it's fun. I love answering questions and teaching people how to make things, so feel free to ask me anything at any time.\\
'''Artistic Ideals''': I believe in interaction with fans, immediate WordOfGod about trivia facts, and avoiding ArtistDisillusionment. I believe that just one bad [[FanHater "fan"]] or a bad [[FanDumb group of "fans"]] are not an appropriate excuse for WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings. Like the writers who hung out in Europe in the early 1900s, I believe in artists hanging out together, collaborating, and having as much fun as humanly possible. Above all these, I believe in passing on my knowledge about how to make these things: it's fun, insightful, and although I mostly do fanworks as a hobby, they teach you a lot about the creation process.\\
'''When I'm Not Making Videos''': I write short stories and plays, I tutor writers (specifically fiction writers), I'm a stage actor, and I'm a freelance theater techie (specifically live scoring and sound effects). I also play a LOT of [[{{Arma}} Arma II]] (specifically coop servers, but if I can find a low-latency CTI server, I'll play that, too). I also dabble in [[LetsPlay Let's Plays]], but I'm still trying to improve my LP skills.\\
'''Current Troping Goals''': As a new troper, my mission is stamp out mis-{{Pothole}}d tropes, like BeyondTheImpossible and [[FlatWhat Flat "What,"]] for example. I hope to save commonly-used tropes from the PermanentRedLinkClub by stopping reckless potholing.\\
'''More Trivia Facts''': I own roughly 110+ books. More than half are non-fiction and a third of the collection is on writing. My favorite book on writing is {{Literature/Story}} by Robert [=McKee=]. My favorite book on relationships is ''The Relationship Cure'' by John M. Gottman, Ph.D. My favorite book on self-help is ''Awaken The Giant Within'' by Anthony Robbins. I also study Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Neuro-Associative Conditioning (an offshoot of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy's black sheep cousin Neuro-Linguistic Programming, developed by Anthony Robbins to address NLP's shortcomings) for both myself and to help others. Although I am interested in Japan (I can speak a little Japanese, I study the culture, and I've eaten at a teppan-yaki restaurant every birthday since I was five), I am not an anime geek. I can play just about any instrument, but I'm better at composing.\\
