I've always been a creator. I was always drawing, coloring, etc. In high school, I discovered my dad's old 35mm camera, and I was hooked. Others recognized my passion for creating and I worked my way up to become a Senior Graphic Designer for companies like Exxon, Compaq, and HP. As great as these companies were to work at I wasn't creating for me. With the support of my wife, I walked away from the corporate life on my 50th birthday to work for myself and I've never looked back.
