I spent my younger days reading as many books as I could get my hands on (which was a lot) and drawing on and gluing and creating everything I could. I loved to experiment with art which may explain my parents refusal to let me use power tools until quite late in life and only with a very clear plan.
I graduated college with a degree in Graphic Design and spent some time doing some post-graduate work at the College for Creative Studies. I am currently a graphic designer for GH+A Design Studios and a freelance designer and illustrator.

I own what has been described as "the most majestic aura ever seen on a canine to hop down the streets" by me. Other people do agree with me, but they choose other words. Words like "oh, you're dog is so cute. Can I pet him?" He keeps me entertained by making noises akin to Tim Allen on Home Improvement. I've tried to train him, but he doesn't understand that his noises provoke a nostalgia for my childhood in me. To be fair, he also doesn't understand the concept of nostalgia so the learning curve is a bit steep.
