I like to do everything.
No, really, everything.
I've been hoping to be an artist when I grow up and am still working on it. I currently have as my medium WOOD.
I'm also a photographer, Ex-techno-geek, industrial control panel builder, amateur plumber, home maintenance tech, and other things I can't remember. (Give me a break, I'm OLD)
Other media in which I work in these days is digital art, photo restoration, drawings, animations and videos.
See, I told you, I like to do everything.
