it takes another old soul, with an equally dark side, to connect me to my deeper creativity. i’ve tried to find that place alone, though it feels kind of like having an old, worn out, treasure map with the ‘X’ torn from it. it’s not like i’m missing…

don’t know what it is about the rainy, cool, days…but, we have quite the love affair going. i pick up on a certain energy in the air which fuels creativity like not much else can. it’s pretty amazing.   (until i apply liquid eyeliner in the morning, and…

last night, while somewhere in between awake and asleep…i had the best idea, ever, of something to write about today. i told myself…’you’re being lazy. write it down.’ myself told me…’you’ll remember, don’t worry.’ and, we fell asleep. this morning, i am…

packing everything up, and keeping it inside, isn’t necessarily a bad thing. it just keeps it all in one place so it doesn’t get lost later. unless you lose your whole suitcase. then, you’re just screwed, i guess.     (this is my favorite suitcase, btw.…

Story
Introduction
I'm an artist.  I see the world through my lens.

Most days, you can find me somewhere between coffee and wine, trying to be functional and attempting to funnel the ADHD into productivity.  Somedays, it works...most times, it fails miserably.

I'm always learning.  
Always teaching myself.  
Always growing.


Bragging rights
I don't really suck that bad; and sometimes, people that really matter, get a hold of my work and put it in cool places--places way cooler than the places I could've ever thought of. (Like this one time, when Trey Ratcliff put me in one of his hangouts and the other time, when a nice lady auctioned off my art for a good cause :) )
