As a child, I drew lots and lots of horses, pegasi, and unicorns (sometimes unipegs). This later morphed into drawing lots and lots of dragons that looked a great deal like my horses. As I reached Jr. High my interests turned to Japanese Anime and what I called frames that I later learned were called gestures.
In 2005 towards the end of my Junior year in High School I enlisted in the U.S. Army and spent my last Summer of High School in Basic Combat Training. When I came back I finished High School a semester early and went on to Advanced Individual Training for Military Police.
2007-2008 I deployed to Iraq for 15 months where I picked up art again to draw comic portrayals of the ridiculous moments of service life as a way to deal with stress. 2008, after my deployment ended, I left the Military due to medical reasons and came back home to Texas. There I spent time looking for a job in a really tough economy and eventually got a job as School Security. For an artistic person that type of work is deadly to the imagination.
2011 I left for what I had hoped would be a life long ride around the United States on horseback. I rode maybe 40 miles in the Sierra Nevada before I simply could not anymore due to Wintery Conditions blocking the trail, 2 broken bones, and horses that just simply were doing badly in the marshy bog conditions of the valleys we rested at.
My health once again went bad (the same condition that forced me out of the military, the evil Endometriosis) and it was only recently in 2013 that I had a hysterectomy done to improve my life.
Now I am back to what I love to do...Art and my new passion Photography!
