Who Am I?
I strive to remain as cool & calm as a Caribbean breeze. I am an artist that loves showing my clients how beautiful they are. I interview my subjects to learn about their story….then figure out how to take that information and turn it into a visual representation that can hang in their home. My mission is to create a piece of art that can be enjoyed by families and their future generations.
I am a Student Of Social Media and serve aging Gen X’ers and young Baby Boomers by making Social Media and Live Streaming approachable
When I’m not working a perfect day would include Live Music, Sunshine, and a Cocktail…..preferably with a sea view. Thursdays would not be Thursday without a Scandal. Yes I AM a Gladiator in a Suit!
