I was born in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, and raised in Holland, Michigan. I have a positive attitude towards life, and I always try to learn something new every day. This mindset has allowed me to experience many interesting things in life, from bagging groceries to building log homes and spending time as an industrial painter.

I discovered my passion for working with databases while working in information systems. I enjoy the analytical thinking, problem-solving, and strategic planning aspects of my work. My job has taught me the importance of collaboration, and I value the benefits it brings.

I am passionate about writing and dream of becoming a writer. I believe that writing allows me to express myself and inspire others. I also enjoy photography, videography, and music production as they allow me to express my creativity and bring my ideas to life.

In addition to these, I also have a strong attachment to comic book heroes. As a child, I was always fascinated by their extraordinary abilities, their unique personalities, and the impact they had on the world around them. I enjoy drawing and often find inspiration from these characters, which has helped me to develop my artistic skills over the years. Overall, I believe that my passion for writing and content creation, combined with my love for comic book heroes, has shaped me into the person I am today.

I find solace in the act of creation and enjoy inspiring others to pursue their passions. I hold a firm belief that where there is a will, there is a way.
