Like pretty much every artist ever, I've had a passion for art ever since I can remember. But rather than go to art school I became a mechanical engineer since it promised a much more stable economic future. And it did just that while at the same time allowing me to pursue painting. In between paintings I spend my time reading art books and blogs, watching Youtube videos, and watching reruns of Bob Ross to grow my artistic talents.
Shortly after I graduated college in 2000, I got into the home recording hobby. Home recording is basically what it sounds like. I bought some sound recording equipment and set up a bedroom studio and began writing and recording songs.  I recently started writing and recording again but my main focus remains on my paintings.
