I would LOVE to tell you that it’s been a smooth road, but then, I would be lying to you, lol. There’s been a lot of up and downs, with balancing raising a family, people you’ve worked with that don’t work out, making time for music, just a lot.

Once I built a strong clientele, I decided to go full time because I always knew I didn’t want to work for anyone but myself. I ended up quitting my full-time job and dedicated my time to my business. I am now one year into running my business, it’s definitely not easy but it’s worth it every single day. I have a 6-year-old daughter who admires me and looks up to and I want to show her that she can do anything if she puts her mind to it. Read more>>

I love to work with acrylics and textures. I have always loved the tactile sense of paint and various mediums that build up textures in paint. I don’t just like to paint how a texture would look but to include some build up of textures to feel like it’s right there for you to touch. Read more>>

Looking for a support group for men considering testosterone replacement therapy and found nothing. So, I started a Facebook group. It grew slowly at first and I can remember how exciting it was with every new member. After three years, I think we had around 1,500 members.
