It's really short and simple. I joined back in 2006 somewhere around October....it might have been 2005. We'll see if the year mark ticks over come the end of October. I was dating someone who was a member at the time. She was on here one night when I was at her place and I asked her what she was doing. She started showing me around and I made an account that night.
I'd stopped coming around for a little while, but then I got some sort of creative spark and began playing around with Photoshop. Started making forum signatures for myself and friends. Which turned into making fliers for event in City of Heroes. I lost my job in 2007 and ended up buying a camera and picked up photography which first started off as a hobby, but the more I got into it the more I fell in love with it and now I want to become a professional. I even started going to college after 20 years of not being in any type of school. Was working towards my BFA-Photography, but decided to put that on the back burner and switch to something that would be a little more lucrative. So now I'm working on my BFA-Web Design and New Media degree, but plan to go back and finish that photography degree.
I haven't posted much on dA lately, but that is soon to be changing.
