Name – Rock Kitaro
Date of Birth – August, 18 1986, Army base in Fairfax County, Virginia
Raised – Military upbringing had me raised all over the place. I don’t like to claim a particular city, but I will say that I spent most of my life in the Tampa Bay area.
Education – Cross Creek High School, Augusta GA – 2005
Bachelor of Fine Arts from IADT Tampa, Florida – 2009
More than that, however, my education really began after I left the institutions. On my own, I dove into history, gorging myself on numerous events and worldviews. I studied various religions and controversial figures. I found I had an insatiable hunger for knowledge and my mind had developed so that I was able to understand it. I began to ask questions. I began a perennial pursuit of the truth.
