Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. - Maya Angelou
"Great is the human who has not
lost his childlike heart."
Mencius (Meng-Tse), 4th century BCE.
I love people, culture, life, music, art, books...all of these things inspire me to be creative and ultimately make me happy and feel like I have purpose. If the work I create inspires other people as well, it means that much more.

I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington until I decided to make a big life change and move down to L.A. The change was prompted by receiving a kidney transplant on OCtober 1, 2014. The sun has made a big impact on my overall happiness and well being...I love it down here.
After my transplant, I went back to work and realized I needed to do more with my new outlook on life. I quit my job, took some time off to really recover and take care of myself, then decided to move. I traveled all over the country looking for the right place with culture and life. L.A. ended up being my final choice. After moving down last January, I decided to get out of the commercial real estate development business and pursue something that I could really love doing. Web design has all of the components of creativity and problem solving that I find challenging and rewarding. Being back in school has also allowed me to reactivate the artist in me and I continue to pursue many mediums of art endeavors.
I have no idea what I'm keeping private at this point!
