My Fulltime (day) job is that of a Registered and Licensed Occupational Therapist-working with people who suffer from physical and mental diabilities-I restore lives...one day at a time.

I am also also a self-trained graphics artist, working with musicians and rockbands doing album cover art, animation and promo work.

....And No, I never sleep.. ;-)
