I chose to represent my life in entertainment through these app drawings that are inspired from all of the memories,thoughts,feelings,people,and stories from growing up around live bands with my dad as a child to being on tv and movies as a grown up.....not to mention stage hand work like at the super bowl, jamming a bill with world wide rock and roll acts, hosting public radio, going to school, growing up in new mexico with my family, college and university, it's all here and growing thank you
