Hello, I am a New Mexican stuck in Michigan. LOL. I just recently picked up woodworking as a hobby.

I have been drawing since I was 2. So, my background is in the creative field. I have a degree in advertising art and design, which I achieved after serving my country. I have worked many years in advertising using my creative and technical skills.

Currently, I am employed as an IT Professional, specializing in Apple computers (got out of creative business to be in IT).
