Hey there, my name is Jeff and I live in south Florida, like the topic says. I go by the name Jediberserker on here because I think it is kind of cool and an oxymoron in itself. I just wanted to introduce myself real quick and say that I am a lifelong Star Wars fan! I have been interested in joining the 501st for quite some time and have done quite a bit of research on it. I have attended two Star Wars conventions, Celebration 5 and 6 and have been attending Star Wars Weekends for the last 8 years. Every time I see a Trooper or anyone in costume it makes me want to join that much more. I was 99% certain that I would be doing a TK suit. Then one day I spotted something I had not seen before...an all black Storm Trooper. "What can this be," I asked myself. I did some asking and research on my own and found out that they were called Blackhole Shadow Troopers, or TX units. I was blown away by them and thought they look really intimidating! Fast forward the clocks and calendars to present day. About two weeks ago I received my armor kit. Now the adventure begins with the build. I am not really sure how to do this because I have never attempted it. The great people down here in the Everglades Squad are awesome and have been really supportive and ready to offer their help. We are going to begin once Star Wars Weekends has passed. That brings us up to date on why I want to be in the 501st.
A little more about me. I turn the big 40 in about a week. I am the proud dad of a wonderful 9 year old daughter (she is getting into Star Wars but REALLY likes Ashley Eckstein, aka, Ahsoka Tano! I am into many things such as the martial arts, movies, shooting/making videos, video editing, shooting pool, fast cars, guns, and most recently I have gotten into road and mountain biking. I have worked in retail for about 24 years and was also in Law Enforcement for a little while. I also run a Star Wars fan page on Facebook that is followed by approximately 750 people so far. I wont state the name unless someone asks me.
That's about it so until later,
Jeff . Jediberserker
May the Force be with YOU!
