I have found a niche for myself in design and enjoy learning and expanding my design skills on a weekly basis. Being a huge car fanatic, I am a very hands-on person. I am not afraid to get some grease and oil under my fingernails to have a little fun! Lately I have been dabbling with automotive furniture creations for fun in my spare time.
