ABOUT ME

I am a Graphic Designer from Mobile, AL.  I am currently living in Oakland, CA.  I'm a generally happy person with a strong work ethic.  I'm always working hard to improve my already wonderful life.  My true passion in life is cars and racing.  I love working on them, and driving on the race track.  Every time I get a day off I can be found at the race track, or under the hood.
