I graduated from the University of Kentucky with a BA in Advertising Communications. It seemed more marketable than an art degree. Much to my dismay, although not to my surprise, I soon came to the painful realization that I had no interest in communicating advertisements.
For as long as I can recall, I wanted to make something; do something with my time that would mean something to people. So, after a string of jobs (many times two at once) and a blind search in the corporate world for where this college boy should go, it occurred to me. I should be an electrician, of course. So now at the end of my workday, I get to flip a switch and bring light to peopleís lives.
My home is the first house my childhood sweetheart and I have bought and the only home our new son will ever know. Iíve already made him a portrait to show his kids and theirs. I get to draw and make light; how cool is that?
