Professional Information
 

I am an incredibly creative person that is looking for a profession to thrive in. I am a patient and artistic photographer, a messy and unique painter, and a culinary scientist to find anyway to make people happy. 

I am also very organized, coming from a regimented background with a creative soul- I am able to perform various assignments with high quality results. There is nothing I set my mind to that I will not thrive and succeed in. 

I began these statements with "I", but the truth is everything I do I hope to make about helping, supporting, and creating joy for others
