More Than U Need 2 Know About Yours Truly...
When I started selling my art online in 2003 I had the fun bio (like the info below) and the boring bio (you know.. the one where you brag about all you've done in your art career *yawn*) -- my stats programs on my web sites continue to tell me that far more people care to read what music I listen to and what I watch on tv over what art shows I've exhibited at or who owns my art. So, for those of you interested in the fun bio here you go.... a list of things I don't know why anyone would care to know about me, but strangely do...

---you are gonna get a hell of a lot more out of DOING it than you are TALKING about it.

i am always adding to this list... stay tuned for more more than u need to know..
