I was born a pale towheaded child, to a middle cl *censored* couple in Illinois. From birth my folks always did the best they could for me. Awesome parents they were and still are. An adventurous child, I was usually outside playing - snow, rain or shine. My parents said I was quite thirsty for knowledge, talking at an early age, a wiz with legos, etc.
Around the age of 4 and about the time I received a brother, my parents moved us to Texas. I loved it despite the poverty we confronted during our stint down south. The delightful weather and the abundance of interesting wildlife left a warm impression I still carry with me. Much to my chagrin the Hopper family eventually moved back to Illinois.
Back in Illinois we moved around inside the DeKalb area, where I attended a few different schools. On account of the moving, friends would come and go. I suppose that is why I had entertained many pets. Currently I have Dorian, my two-year-old Frilled Lizard.
As I grew movies and computer games became a part of my free time. My early induction into the primitive gaming world can account for my Graphic Design career. At the age of 16 my interests broadened when my father bought my first car, a 1970 Dodge Coronet. From then on I was hooked on muscle cars and now I own three.
After graduating high school from Genoa Illinois in 1998, my safe sheltered life soon ended. I was kicked out of my parents Kingston home, due to a tattoo I had given myself at the age of 18. Trying to hold onto a steady job and attending college full-time prove to be harder than I originally had thought.
I moved around a bit living with friends and on my own, whatever proved affordable at the time. I began to meet new people and make new friends. Learned how it felt to love and survived a broken heart or two. I had my bout with depression, took a life detour, hung out with a few unsavory people and made my peace with reality. I've made mistakes, learned from them and I realized where my life was going. So I straightened up and gained some ground in the professional world.
