I was born into a loving middle class family
that nurtured my creativity every step of the way. Encouraged to express myself in every way imaginable.
As a youth I excelled in art (and not much more).
Staking my claim to fame in high school less for my artistic contributions to school carnivals and elections than for the scathing often lude cartoons that usually found their way to their intended student, faculty member or washroom wall.
The work ethic was pounded into me from an early age; paper routes, yard work, gas stations and grocery stores.
It is on account of my dear mother's support and insistent badgering that I have become the fine, hard working, cultured, creative soul I am today.
