As a young child, I was a real jock, really into soccer, basketball, and tennis. At age 15, my life came to a screaming halt. I woke up in a hospital paralyzed and blind. Thankfully, I regained half of my vision and the use of my limbs. I was changed though. It was at this time that my artist self emerged with love for color, shape, light, and became the core of my being.
