Once destroyed half the neighbor's corn field to art direct a team of designers to create a town out of corn stalks. My excuse: I was only 9.

Designed and created a series of over 40 murals for a restaurant in a certain mouse-themed park in Shanghai, China.
Once did an illustration for an ad selling a gay men's sex phone line. At least I learned a lot about anatomy.

Wrote (and rewrote, and rewrote) a memoir about my father, which I never published. But writing it changed my life.
