Snakes inspire me. I watch TV about them and sometimes read books about them. I like working with animals, and I volunteer working with birds of prey. Snake coloration's and patterns interest me, for example, gaboon viper color patterns look like dead leaves. An art teacher in high school taught me to draw snake scales, and then I became interested.

Japanese culture interests me. I make comic books and write stories based on my anime drawings. I made a comic book where six death knights went to retrieve a dragon that died on a glacier. I watch anime on television and am inspired by the way the heroes stop the villains.
