I am just a man trying to fulfill the calling on my life; below is my story.

In Elementary school I became fascinated with espionage and was determined to serve in the intelligence community any way I could. After visiting with the FBI one day, I left with the encouragement to one day enter the field of Cyber spying (espionage). In all honesty, I did not really desire to work in that area. My next stop was Hollywood. From later in Elementary school to early in middle school I was pursuing a career as a singer and actor.
My generation seems obsessed with celebrity culture more so than previous generations, but that is probably an exaggeration. For me that obsession came to a screeching halt on Thursday, June 25th 2009. Up until then I had auditioned for television shows and was told by those I met in the industry to keep going; I could have done so and had a nice career, but I decided against it. Many people talk about how dark the entertainment industry is, but respectfully most people do not know how dark it really is. With what I had learned I decided to turn my back on that dream. The truth was there even when I tried to deny it.
Looking back on the “Hollywood era” of my life, I realized that my desire to be a part of celebrity culture was not so much for the career, but because of the fact that Hollywood socialites have influence. Just imagine if more Hollywood celebrities did not act as a monolithic group, but allowed diverse views to change society for the better. I had to ask myself why it seems that any celebrity who voices thoughts outside the Hollywood mainstream can have their career shattered. I could not in good conscience continue pursuing a Hollywood career knowing that I would need to be a puppet or watered down version of myself.
At the age of 11 on Thursday June 25th 2009, I began asking questions. These questions were the start of my journey to become a journalist and at that time I didn’t even know it. As the years passed, I was blessed to be able to talk with government and military personnel. The consensus among these people was that a large portion of people do not know how corrupt governments and their respective officials can be, especially if left unchecked. This was a similar experience to learning about the entertainment industry; by this time, I learned that government can be just as unethical as the industry I left behind.
Interestingly enough, I believed the social sciences to be boring subjects of low importance until that point; now that I knew the truth I received a new found love of political science and history. All of this led me to journalism. With that knowledge, I understood that all powerful and influential individuals and organizations need to be held accountable. For me, this has moved beyond governments to include churches and businesses.
I began my journalism work in 2009. Since then it has taken different forms from starting as an entertainment platform On January 31st 2017, I registered The Truth War as a professional press organization and I launched our official website on Tuesday, February 14th 2017.
The Truth War’s mission statement
The Truth War exists as a news organization. As a news organization we exist to seek and tell the truth and to hold power including church, state (government), and business accountable with the production and presentation of truthful and informative news content. This is done by pledging allegiance to the truth with the understanding that the truth is not, cannot be, nor is it meant to be classified or redacted but unclassified, declassified, and unredacted. This is accomplished by remaining free from the control and manipulation of all powers and influences including: political ideology, political parties, leaders of any movement or organization, and any other possible influence whether they be individuals or organizations. This is not to say that secrecy is always wrong, in fact, it is sometimes necessary for protection; however, in cases where the classification, redaction, censorship, and suppression of the truth is leading to, enabling, and cloaking corruption and injustice the truth must be exposed, revealed, and uncovered.
