Have you ever wondered how someone got to be who they are? Just look at what they did as a child. I believe most of us acted out our career dreams through play. Of course I've stretched things a little bit, but it's OK; I have an artistic license; however, it has been revoked several times--just kidding.

Some people ask: What's so funny? I say, life. The inspiration for many of these cartoons comes from ordinary situations or events. It's hard to explain what goes on in my brain. Images pop up in my imagination and I jot them down on paper.
I also get many ideas from family and friends. It's amazing, they look at some of
my drawings and it gets their humorous, creative juices flowing.
Coming Soon! Prints available
Let's get serious for a moment. Saving our planet Earth is no joke and I believe catching someones attention with a humorous cartoon can be a cleaver way to get a point across. I have always had a passion for protecting our environment and it struck me one day to use this medium to address the critical issues: Global Warming, Loss of Habitat, Pollution, Forest Fires, Extinction...the list goes on.

I volunteer at Wild for Life in Asheville, NC. They are a volunteer, non profit center that rehabilitates wildlife and provides education. I work there repairing cages, general care taking, cleaning cages and feeding our ambassador birds. As of late I have been assisting in the nursery taking care of injured animals and helping with their education programs. It is very rewarding. I've done drawings of some of their ambassador birds. We sell prints to raise funds for the center. These education birds have injuries that prevent them from being released back to the wild. Wild for Life is dedicated to getting animals back into the environment and between 75 and 80 percent of the injured animals we get into the center are rereleased.

Wild for Life:
This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.
Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
