I'm an artist, and I write sometimes. But most of the time, I'm looking at pictures of cats and raving about instant coffee brands.
I'm a cat dad to one (1) very obese cat, and one beloved scaredy cat.
I don't believe in the Zodiac. God, I'm such a Virgo.
I would pay exuberant sums for a good piece of avocado toast.
I was once on an episode of Cake Boss.
I love email. (For more information, you can reach me at email@example.com)
