Making people and ideas findable
When organizations book their conventions or meetings, their guest will want something to take home with them. That's where I come in. I provide caricaturing... with a twist. I not only draw cartoons of people, but my work also spotlights the event / occasion that brought them to their gathering location. When these visitors go home after their visit, they take home with them a memento that reminds them of the good time they had in the convention / meeting / trade show city because I…Continue

Yep, livin' the life and happy as a clam... though truthfully, I have no idea why clams are supposed to be so happy and are used as an analogy to convey happiness.

During this time of year when people tend to reflect on the past, I took some time to look back on some of my bagpiping gigs and the good people I served during them. It was truly an honor to be of service to them, and others, and I look forward to opportunities of service in the coming years.
