How long have you lived there? 2 years
How would you describe your style in decorating your home? My style is like Le Corbusier meets Willy Wonka. I wanted simplicity and comfort while simultaneously creating character and interest. I love open spaces, hence I was very selective on the type and amount of items in the space. Like a simple song where you keep hearing new sounds the more you listen, I wanted things that would spark your interest to be littered throughout the space. I always try to keep fresh flowers and plants around. They keep this space alive... plus they are like candy for women. Oops did I say that...
Favorite room in the house and why? The studio is the most fun. I love comic books so I pretty much have those all around the space. Plus, I keep my work and other artist work on the wall for ideas, critique and inspiration.
Are you originally from this area? Yes
If so, have you lived in any other cities? Yes, I have lived in California (San Francisco), Connecticut (Shelton) and Florida (Cape Canaveral).
Why do you love living where you do (city wise)? I have been in this town long enough to see it go through a period of harsh decline to now what appears to be a push in a positive direction. It takes a level of toughness and character for a city to survive and begin to come back from what this town has been through. People here nurture each other. We have no choice. We want each other to succeed. That energy is amazing to be around. Walk around this town now a days and you can't help but to feel it.
