WHAT'S WITH THE EXCLAMATION POINT IN YOUR NAME? When I still lived at home, my dad would often (but accidentally) open my mail by mistake. I got into the habit of putting an exclamation point after the "JR!" so it would stand out better. It worked, and all of my friends began addressing letters to me with the exclamation point intact. It became part of my signature, and eventually it just sort of stuck.
COOL EXPERIENCE FEW PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT ME? I've performed in over a dozen theatrical performances in community theater productions, and I had a small role in an independent film called RUNAWAY DIVAS. It was small, but big enough to have my name in the opening credits (under my stage name, Johnathan Yeo) and it was screened at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago for a few weeks, so I got to see myself on the big screen!
ANY OLD FRIENDS YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET IN TOUCH WITH AGAIN? Why yes! Jill Kelley, Jennifer Ensley, Lauren Holman, Maggie Groves---and anyone that I knew in the army or college....if I lost touch with you, I probably didn't want to. Please write!
Thanks to all my friends who came up with questions they wanted answered....if you have any questions you want to know, just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post it up here!
