When I was four years old I remember telling my Mom that someday I would be as well known and as popular as the "Teenage Mutant Ninga Turtles". Well after starting as a white belt at the age of four and putting in ten hard years
of training I am now a Second Degree Blackbelt in Wushu Kung Fu and First in Tae Kwon Do Karate. In 1999 I won my first Grand Championship in NASKA (North American Sport Karate) and by 2002 I was a Three Time World Champion, 2000,2001 & 2002 (see my TeamAIR page). I now hold a World Title in the United States, France, Canada and Central America.
By the age of fourteen I have competed in Paris, Quebec, Guatemala City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York City, Washington DC, Orlando, Boston, Phoenix, Knoxville, Nashville, St. Paul just to name a few. In Paris, in March of 2002, I performed for an audience of over 25,000 spectators at the famous French Sports complex "The Bercy".
In July of 2000 I was selected from thousands of performers to be the "Best of Dance" when I won Ed McMahon's Next Big Star Contest. This was Mr. McMahon's first contest. The show is now being hosted by Arsenio Hall and is on NBC.
In October of 2000 I won Jenny Jone's Amazing Kids That Rock contest and was one of thirteen kids that performed on her annual kids talent showcase on the WB network. Jenny said she loved my "HipHop" style of Karate and knew I would be a great actor someday.
In 2001 I was flown to Hollywood in a days notice by the GAP Clothing Company to be filmed for a national TV commercial. I was given a room at the swank "The Mondarin" hotel on Sunset Blvd., in downtown Hollywood. I was chauffeured and dined for two days, only to find out later that I didn't fit the look they needed for the spot. Four months later I made it to final casting for a international Pepsi Cola commercial. In 2002 I shot a pilot for ABC called "Go Sick" which started the roller coaster ride I have been on for 2 years.
I am now with the hottest agency in Hollywood, Osbrink Talent Agency. Cindy Osbrink is just truly amazing and she makes me feel like family. In 2004 my manager Chris Fenton along with partner Walter Hamada opened their own management company H2F, keep an eye on them they will make Hollywood History. Last fall I played a young Ben Stiller in a film with him and Jennifer Aniston. My TV show PUNK'D for MTV was a huge hit. It is the highest rated cable show for 14-29 year olds. I begin work on my own show for MTV Called "The Ryan Pinkston Thing" now on hold. Spy Kids 3D which I played the lead of Arnold was a box office smash making over $150 mil. It is out on DVD and VHS now make sure to get your copy. It will be a collectors Item being the first 3D movie to be released for home viewing. I played the lead in MGM's "Soul Plane" which will be released Memorial Day 2004. You won't be able to stop laughing at this one. I have a cameo appearance in "Bad Santa" which was released in November 2003. The director Terry Zwigoff asked me personally to do this funny scene with Bernie Mac. I starred as Patton Chase on "Quintuplets" a situation comedy for FOX TV which was a huge hit for the network. I am currently (2005) working on my own film "Nothing But The Truth". It's all about a boy .. Sam Leonard who is forced to live out all the lies he tells at his new school. This is bound to be a big hit for New Line Cinema.
