"Every design in my store is part of who I am. Some designs have direct song lyrics on them while other designs have been influenced by direct experience. For example, the canvas art that says, "Don't forget to say goodbye, you're never too young to die" is a direct lyric from the song Hollow, which is about the unsolved murder of my mother back when I was nine. Obviously, an event like that has changed my life forever and I chose to cope with that event by creating art and participating in sports.
What do you do when you've been dealt a traumatic hand? Do you crawl into a ball and give up on life? I tried that for a while...no fun! Do you get angry and lash out at the world? Been there. Done that. Check this out.
Music, sports, and art have been my safe place. I create new music and art daily and I coach sports. I will continue to do so until I have nothing left to give."
