For those who even remember me, let alone give a rip - I had an "incident" with a feline a few weeks ago that has left my two index fingers in a semi-useful state. The good news is I do get to keep the fingers, the bad news is things are ALOT harder to do, like turning a doorknob, reaching in my pocket, or signing my name. I know I've been inactive so long probably nobody cares, but I'm afraid drawing is RIGHT OUT.... For a while until I heal.

With he dawn of 2013, I think it's high time for a profile update!

My fingers have healed quite well, but it's taken them years.  The cat did some somewhat permanent damage, as the fingers can tire out quickly.  Nevertheless, I can still churn out an occasional drawing!!  (Happy dance)

Still railroading.  Still voice acting.  Still loving it all!

Last year, I bought myself my very own place!  A nice little waterfront two-bedroom condo in a big California city. 
I still can't believe First National Title saw fit to give me a home loan!  o_O
Year one of mortgage payments down - 29 more to go.  Wish me luck.

Animaker131Hey! Thanks for the comment! I'm glad you like my work & the things I'm into! ^v^ Yes, guitar is one of my most favorite ways to pass the time. I like to play instrumental fingerstyle guitar mostly. haha, I've tried the Ukulele once, In fact I have one, but I haven't looked into how it was tuned, so I haven't been able to play it. I think that's great that you can play one! ^v^
I have never met anyone who was studying to become a professional voice actor. This is so cool!! I'm afraid voice acting isn't my highest priority right now, since I'm not one of the most promising voice actors around. XD I guess that's why I decided to leave it as a hobby 'til I get more skilled with animating, which I've been looking into online courses for. I'd really like to one day be capable of creating my own animated productions & know every aspect of how it's done. The animation, Voice acting, Music... everything. Maybe that's too ambitious of a goal, I don't know. XD But that doesn't stop me from dreaming or trying! I just LOVE to sing & play with as many different voices as I can. Mostly when I'm working. XD Though I'm sure it's nothing pretty. XD But you are in your 2nd year of studying voice acting?! That's great! Oh gosh, that must be fun. Could you tell me what it's like? & What kind of part you are auditioning for? I'd love to hear about it. I'm Sorry, now I'm the one who's rambling. thanks again for the comment! Hope to hear from you again.
