I'm a singer now.

I'm a little hardheaded so it was ages before I decided to just sing and stop making boring excuses like oh, you can't make a living out of it. Oh, you know, I don't have the look. Oh, my teeth. See, this one is facing the other direction.

I draw too! Check out the doodles and you'll have an idea of what my life is like. I'm still figuring out this doing-what-you-love thing so the drawings are entertaining.

It's very very easy to make me happy.

Thank you for stopping by! The formal profile is down there. ⤵︎:)
