As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
"Forest Ranger. As a kid and still today I love spending time outdoors. Driving down the backroads, hiking through the woods, walking around rivers and lakes, finding really interesting areas. Later I discovered that Forest Rangers have greater duties, beyond hanging out in really beautiful landscapes. I then relegated outdoor activities to a hobby vs. a career."
What made you want to become an artist/photographer?
"Crayola and View Masters."
What are three things you like most about MINDSCAPE?
"Not settling, always improving, and the teams passion for doing what's right. And the kickball team."
What do you do for fun?
"Everything. Really, I try to find "fun" in everything I do. Right now, any time I can spend with my family is fun and precious to me - with two teenagers I now realize they're growing up fast. In my spare time you can typically find my wife and I at a volleyball tournament, football game, marching band performance, wrestling match, basketball game, orchestra concert, band concert, baseball game, softball game or an awards banquet for one of the before mentioned activities. By the way, if we are not at any of these events we're running late and en-route."
What's your education background?
"Went to Kendall College of Art and Design for my education. After graduating, I started to learn. College provided tools but life has taught me lessons."
