Kemeeleon, also known as The Kemeeleon is a furry independent film maker, and a founding member of Umgotts Studios, who first began his official association with the furry fandom in early 2004, attending a number of anthropomorphic-related events at I-Con 23, in addition to his duties at the con as director of the CCG Track. He then attended AnthroCon 2004, his first full-fledged furry convention also, coincidentally, the last one held at the Adam's Mark Philadelphia.

In addition to the usual "always held the interest in anthropomorphic animals, but didn't know about furry until such and such a when" most furries include as part of their biography, The Kemeeleon's case is rather unique in that he as well as a number of his high school friends, including Amadeus, Lunamor, and PyroPhin, all stumbled across the furry fandom independently of one another. In their college years, one discussion lead to another and they suddenly realized that they could all, to some degree or another, associate themselves with the fandom.

After having a great time volunteering at AnthroCon, he attended FurFright in 2004, where he met his current girlfriend and love of his life, the furry artist and animator Mitsu. They began dating in the spring of 2005, and have been happy together since, attending a number of furry cons together, including I-Con 24, where The Kemeeleon performed on a number of panels pertaining to science and furry, including one alongside Uncle Kage that resulted in an escape through a first-floor window of Stony Brook University's Old Chemistry Building; AnthroCon 2005, where The Kem worked on his art in Artist's Alley at a half-table adjoining Mitsu and Lunamor. He also performed in the Masquerade alongside Amadeus, performing a two-man spinoff of their in-production film, The Red Raven Legends.

The group traveled to Connecticuit for FurFright 2005 where they premiered their finished, first independent film, OMGWTF! Furries. There were two screenings over the course of the convention, which were followed by the pseudo-"Making Of" simply entitled Don't. as well as a live Q&A from Amadeus and The Kemeeleon. Con crud set in early, and that resulted in a rather ill The Kemeeleon hosting a short, poorly rehearsed discussion on theoretical genetics and scientific flaws of anthropomorphics.

In the Spring of 2006, The Kemeeleon appeared at I-Con 25. His panels included not only two more screenings of OMGWTF! Furries, but additionally panels on technology and the fandom, independent film making, anthropomorphics on TV, a look at the science behind Jurassic Park, and a discussion on convention etiquette alongside Kagemushi.

In July 2006, The Kemeeleon did a couple of panels at AnthroCon, including a reading of The Red Raven Legends and a panel entitled What the Heck's a Furry, Anyway?, both alongside Amadeus.

He appeared at FurFright 2006 under the badge name Dark Lord Kemeeleon as a sponsor/dealer/panelist, hosting a back-to-back screening of OMGWTF! Furries! and a preview of OMGWTF! Furries II: The Wrath of Con. He and Amadeus also hosted a panel on podcasting, as well as a two-man comedy show aptly titled Standing Room Only.

At I-Con 26, he and Amadeus hosted repeat screenings of 'OMGWTF!' and the preview of its sequel, as well as another session of What The Hell's A Furry, Anyway? and a panel entitled Furs Control The Media, both of which filled the lecture halls in which they were held.

Presently, the lizard is working on a sequel to OMGWTF tentatively subtitled The Wrath of Con, which will be feature-length and more story-oriented than the first mockumentary, as well as working on his pet project of a number of years, the sci-fi/fantasy muck-up called The Red Raven Legends.
