I make all sorts of things… Toys, Websites, Photos, Stories, etc.
I’m almost plagued by my need to create, it’s actually an issue at times. I’ve been designing stuff since before I knew it was even considered “designing”. I’m a pretty big dreamer when it comes to projects in my life. You’ll always find me aiming for the farthest star even if I’ve only got a paper airplane to work with. But that’s enough about vague ol’ me go ahead and click the links above!
