Welcome to my website.

This site is an outlet for my creative energies. I enjoy music, art, and photography.

I  started painting in Oct 2015. After a considerable 2 year surge, I have slowed down quite a bit.

In 2017 I added the Videos page

In Jan 2018 I bought my very first digital camera, by March I had added the Photography page to this site.
