Who am I?
If you want to know me career-wise...

There's more, but let's go into more personal stuff....
I have a passion for anything design or art related... latest tech devices, video games, toys, and cars. I love to paint daily and spend time with my family. Originally from sunny Southern California, I am now in misty Seattle with my beautiful wife and 2 daughters.
