Artist by nurture.
Activities: A decently brewed cup of joe with a great friend. A

Attempting hardware projects just to prove that I can. Pretending

Printmaking. The Beat Generation. Numb fingers holding cold chess
pieces. The shape of the clouds. Sporadically passionate kissing.
Small cities trapped in a snow globe. Obscure individuals that have

On a typical Friday night I am

At my kitchen table. Listening to shitty tunes over the airwaves
