Witch part of the customizing process did you enjoyed the most?
Learning and honing new techniques to help convey the narrative and evoke emotions through my work

How and when did you begun customizing?
I have been a designer for 15 years but decided to try my hand at customs early last year as a counter balance to my grueling corporate work schedule.  It was the perfect outlet for me to be able to express myself artistically with themes and ideas that I normally wouldn’t have the opportunity with in my full time job. Fast forward a year later and it has become more than just a passion, but a goal to continuing exploring and refining my art and to see what types new opportunities may arise from these endeavors.

What keeps you inspired?
Dreams, nightmares, friends, family, life experiences and my peers in the community.
