The earliest lessons I can recall, outside of academics, are those on the piano. My parents were kind enough to pay for years of classical training. Just one of those important parts of education I think is far too ignored today. I also began drawing and scribbling every chance I got. Probably the only time my family got peace from such a hyperactive child. Just one of those kids who tore apart everything just to see how it worked. Probably my largest lust - to figure out how EVERYTHING worked. By college I had a firm grasp of engineering, physics and chemistry, so I delved into the most difficult field of understanding - Biology - how life itself works. Always, along the way, I kept up with my love for art and wound up getting a secondary degree in design. My postbacculareate in Science allowed me to work with NASA for quite a while building habitats for animals on the Space Station. My main concentration being in Aquatics. Some of the most fun I had working in the corporate environment. After meeting the love of my life on a Caribbean vacation and completing one of my dreams - working on the space program (I was an Apollo baby) - I decided to dive back into the arts, design and music. The web was just in it\'s infancy and I saw a wonderful chance for people to communicate their ideas and creations in a much larger capacity than ever before. Since then I have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area concentrating on creating art, composing and performing music, and assisting others with building their dreams.
