Thank you for stopping by my blog. I have so many things I am working on and I wanted to make it a better reading experience for you. I have kept this blog up now for 6 years. It has gone from Wordpress to Blogger and now back to Wordpress. Hopefully this is to stay.

I am over ambitious at times, but my goal is to keep you updated with what my latest projects are through my blog. I occasionally post things up on Facebook and Instagram, but frankly I am way too busy to be on those things. Make sure to subscribe to my blog, which actually reminds me that I need to double check that works.
