About My Lion King
My Lion King was started in November of 2006. It started as a small website hosted by freewebs.com and it consisted of a homepage, a guestbook, a few pictures and some information about The Lion King films. By the next month, I had already moved the site to a new web host. By then I had about 3 noticeable visitors that chatted with me in the guestbook.
In 2007 I did some more host switching, trying to find a good free host. Realizing that good free web hosting was just a dream, I invested some money into it and got paid hosting. This was quite possibly the best choice I ever made, because it appeared on Google, bringing in more visitors. Happy with the newcomers, I worked very hard to make the website as best as possible by adding a variety of multimedia.
In 2008 I installed forums and The Lion King Theatre. I fixed a lot of old material and did lots of work on the site. I made it so people that were members of the forums were members all around the site, including the new area that I have begun working on: the My Lion King Fan Art Albums (MLKFAA) section, which is for the artists to upload their artwork into their own album.
Throughout 2009 I continued to work on the FAA while activity in the forum continued to grow quite rapidly to my pleasant surprise. It became one of the most active English forums dedicated to The Lion King. Similarly, the FAA grew very quickly as well. Many top-notch artists from The Lion King Fan Art Albums joined and started uploading their beautiful art. I must say I was quite unprepared for so many artists. Still, work on the FAA continued and I started working on new features. From a version number point of view, the FAA is still in "beta" mode. I am hoping to make a formal announcement when the FAA is fully functional in mid-2010.

When I was 4 or 5, my older brother and I, quite impatiently, awaited the release of the highly advertised Disney Film: "The Lion King". When it came out, we were amazed at its beauty. I've loved the film ever since it came out.
I like computers very much, in fact I'm majoring in Computer Sciences. I taught myself everything in the world wide web universe from reading tutorials and chatting around in forums.
Favorite Animals: White Lions, Tigers, Snow leopards pretty much all big cats
video games, reading, assassins creed, films, video making
Only child living with mother. Currently looking for work besides MLK (it doesnt pay :P). Engaged to the beautiful and amazing Zizi. Very protective of those I consider in my 'pride'

I watched the Lion King when I was very young, but only rediscovered it a few years ago. Since then I joined MLK (While looking for TLK comic books online) and have had an amazing time here ever since.
I am huge on Video Games and all, but I do have other interests. Some day I hope to become a Storm Chaser in Tornado Alley and Dixie Alley. I have always been interested in the sciences, especially Astronomy and Meteorology. I am also a Photographer and I hope to some day travel all over the globe taking pictures and timelapse movies. I'm also a writer, and have written over 300 books and plays over the years. I spend a great deal of time at home but I also love going outside to swim and, again, take photographs. I also hope that some day I could become a Peace Activist and help change the world for the better. Big goals in life, but that's just how I like it. Gives me a reason to keep going.

I'm a Christian, I love tea and I believe everything happens for a reason. I live with my mom, dad and dog. I also have two brothers who live in Norway with their own families (they're both married). I honestly love my family more than anything and I can't imagine my life without them.
I joined MLK back in 2009 after searching for a forum where I'd be comfortable and where I could discuss something I had loved all my life; The Lion King. I found my place here at MLK and I am very happy to say that I have had several wonderful discussions and made many new friends. I feel completely at home here on MLK and I actually feel blessed to have found this place.

I first saw The Lion King when I was two, when it aired in theatres. I don't remember that event, but I loved the movie well enough that my mom loves to tell me about when I told her, as if it were an obvious fact, "I'm Simba." We got the VHS back in the day, and the DVD release later, and I have never really had any spells of not liking The Lion King. I draw fan art and write fanfics.
I also write original works, and Literature is actually the career field I'm going into. I currently live in the US, but as things stand I'll be moving to Helsinki in several years. I am very active on MLK and the forum has become a sort of home for me, a lot of important things in my life would not have happened if not for this place and I'm glad to be here.
