About Me

About Me

Interests

Besides designing, I enjoy working with my hands. Whether that be outside in the yard or on my car, it doesn’t matter. I also love eating, finding the latest gadgets and spending time with family and friends.

When I have the opportunity, I would love to learn to skydive, skateboard and play a guitar, not necessarily in that order.
