I was born in Gainesville, but grew up mostly in Jacksonville until after high school. In 1986 I attended UF. After some years of travel I kept returning to Gainesville as the place I wanted to call home.
I'm an artist who fell in love with pizza as a teenager working at the local Italian restaurant. My life's ambition has always been to have a pizzeria but also to make a living as an artist. I have found both things to be my calling.
