You can become a client by starting off with the suiting appointment. If you are looking for a job, we provide interview attire, head to toe. Once you get your job, you come back in for a full week’s wardrobe, head to toe.
My books are bilingual (Spanish/English). My goal is to reach a child who speaks English because they are born here whose parents speak Spanish. Parents can help the children read in Spanish and they then can read in English.
I promote Latino writers who write originally in Spanish. Not translations, original Spanish.
Seeing the children’s faces brighten up when they interacted and took pictures with their favorite superheroes was worth the price of admission. Wait, it was free.

My platform is called faith of a poppy seed which is premature awareness. My daughter was born 11 weeks early.
For as long as I can remember, I have attended the Ohio State Fair. My father took me to the fair for the first time when I was two years old. I really don’t remember going; but, my mother told me that I came home with vanilla ice cream all over my face and my clothes.
I have been a human canon ball for twenty two years. I have been shot about 7,000 times. I just did the tv show “America’s Got Talent”, where I lit myself on fire and was shot from a cross bow.
I was never afraid of heights. I saw an amateur circus in my home town when I was thirteen years old. I saw the high wire act and decided I wanted to do that.
I LOVE THE VIBE OF THE STORE. This is a stretch with the vibrant colors but it reminds me of the store set of the Andy Griffith show (if the Andy Griffith show was in color).

At another festival down town he started the set with a hat, shirt, tie, and pants by the end of the set, he had on a neck tie and boxer shorts.
We are a non-profit community bike shop or a bicycle cooperative. We provide a space where people can come in and use our stand, use our tools, and get help fixing up their bike.

The picture doesn’t do the process justice. The part of me that rode skateboards, loves musical instruments, etc. wanted to stay a little longer and admire the work.
I am adventurous and I am not afraid to make ugly. I taught myself a lot, because I don’t’ have fear. Fear is the biggest enemy of being creative.
I didn’t see a particular style that I wanted to copy. I wanted to have my own unique approach to it. I bought some books and materials, and learned how to do it on my own.
I create all of these pieces from my head. I don’t have a set imagery in mind. They are all stylized landscapes.
If it is square I made it. If it is round he made it.
I like to use exotic hard woods that I buy from all over the world to make things people can appreciate and use every day.

Follow what you love doing. Find your own style. Be true to yourself.
The goal is to create a three dimensional perspective in a two dimensional space to put a smile on your face and engage you with color.

I play with fire and I hit stuff with a hammer.
I want people to learn. This is a dying art form. Not many people are doing this anymore.
I have a 10 year rule. It takes me 4 years to get it right. Then, I do it for another 4 years, and then I’m sick of it. Then, I move onto something else. I have not ran out of decades yet.
I thought that it was an amazing thing that I could make an all wood drum. I ran with it. I stumbled upon some different ideas that weren’t out there like changing the drums a little bit that made them dynamic in another way.
The one eye is about introspection. It is about closing your eye to physical distractions of life and getting to know your true self outside of this vessel, outside of your body, race, sex, social standing and how much money you make.
I do like to paint women. I can get nice whimsical with their hair and their clothes. I could do men. I just find them a little boring.

We have been bringing this to Columbus for the last 25 years and as you can see, everyone is enjoying it.
