Growing up, I considered several professions. As a result, I haven't amounted to much. As a child, I had an aptitude for fine art and creative writing. I even once considered getting into the movies. Nowadays, I'm just an Average Joe trying to make a difference, a change for the better. I'm honored to have made the mistakes and experienced the hardships I have. They've helped me realize what I really want. I often try to channel the same attributes into my characters, flawed but courageous people that learn from their mistakes and ultimately become stronger, better individuals.
