Someone once asked me what word describes me best…

And the answer was simple: I’m a creator. I’m happiest when my hands are at work making something — whether through my career as a web developer, or one of my many other maker interests. I love painting, woodworking, sewing, photography and gardening.

This site is a journal of my creative efforts. Look for posts featuring art that I’ve created, as well as photographs that I take on my travels around the neighborhood, state and more. And you might even see a little bit of gardening and other kinds of growing plants, shrubs and trees.

“All these (craftsmen and master workers) rely upon their hands, and each is skilful in his own work… they keep stable the fabric of the world, and their prayer is in the practice of their trade.”

Sirach 38:31, 34
