Even though most of my professional skills lay in bartending and customer service it actually has helped me out in my story development and art. I love people. All of them even the bad one they make me feel better as a person in my world. Working in high volume with a must to attitude and multitasking like a God for over ten years only brought me to understand it is not just patience that we need in each other but patience with yourself is the main key. Now getting in to the art and story world I am simply falling in love. The passion I have telling stories people enjoy is gold to me. To see a clients face after a finish piece is why I would love to make this a rest of like career.
