I grew up in Boise, Idaho in a house with a mother who taught art for 40 years. Being a stubborn child, I swore I wouldn't follow in either of my parents footsteps. Now that I am 50, I wish I had taken advantage of all that talent my mom had in the arts. She could paint, draw, and made beautiful hand-built pottery that was incredible.
I worked in the newspaper industry for almost 20 years. Advertising division. I changed industries in the past year to sell life and health insurance products.
I love Nashville and the creative vibe here. While I am not a musician, I do love music. Refinishing "near death" guitars has been my way to connect to that creative vibe and express that inner artists mom always knew I had.
