BackgroundEdit

Ojeda was born to an African-American father and Puerto Rican mother somewhere in Indiana. He was put up for adoption and raised in Hawaii by a Native American-Caucasian mother and Mexican-American father. As a child, his adoptive mother wanted to keep him occupied, so he took up dancing and martial arts as a way to balance himself. Since then, he has learned Arashi-Ryu Karate, Taekwondo, Ninjutsu, Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Northern Shaolin Kung Fu and mastered forms of hip hop and breakdancing.[1] As T.J. Storm, he has gone on to star in several major projects including Punisher: War Zone, Green Lantern, Avatar, Jack the Giant Slayer and The Martial Arts Kid. He has also provided voice acting and motion capture to a variety of video games.[2]
