Since I could lift a crayon, I’ve been a storyteller. I rambled off broken sentences, scribbled away at drawings, and tried any means I had to share the stories in my head with the people around me. My tools and techniques have improved over the years, but that desire to share stories never changed.
Thinking an artistic career was out of reach, I began adulthood with nearly a decade in the Air Force, but left the service to follow my wife as she pursued dreams of her own. I then gave an honest effort at a business career, but it never felt like the right fit. That childhood dream refused to be silenced.
With the support of my family, I had a chance to rethink my future, and began the pursuit of the storytelling career I should have chased from the beginning.
Ursula K. Le Guin said, “The creative adult is the child who has survived.” That holds true for me. I’m still a kid at heart, and I plan to make that child proud.
I hope you’ll join me on my journey.
