About Me

When I was seven, I would make haunted houses with my cousins in their basement. I would dream up "attractions," and stage my cousins as the actors in various “scary” roles. When they were in place, I would act as a tour guide, leading the adults through said attractions. They would always pretend to be scared, laughing at the amusement of it all. I’ve never forgotten how much I enjoyed seeing their faces reacting to what we had created.

Even today, I love making things that make people happy.
