In short

  • I kind of got a late start to discovering my love for reading due my to struggles with ADD in grade school.  But life has taken a turn for the better ... finally ... and I am trying to catch up on all the fun stories that I have missed out on for those many years. 

    And with the aid of my ADD I have been able to hyper focus on different interests and hobbies of mine- I love to learn and study about animals, world cultures, weapons & war, archeology, etc. (I'm quite the scholar when I want to be.)  I am also a spastic artist who can create just about anything from 2-D illustrations and graphic art to clay pottery and "foam mouthed" puppets, like the ones you see on Sesame St. 

    I have a passion for wanting to make entertaining and educational media for children.  In the future I wish to write & illustrate children's books, build more puppets & costumes, push toys, etc. for kids.  ... A big inspiration for my media arts is the company "Global Creatures" who built the dinosaurs for "Walking with Dinosaurs, Arena Spectacular".

  • My work isn't for "self expression". I create FOR others.
