I am the Community Development Coordinator at the Bossier Arts Council, and here is a quick synopsis of my path to my new career.
I’m still an avid artist where I paint, draw and create when I have the time. Also, bodybuilding, weightlifting, bike riding and staying healthy have always been passions of mine. Without the stress release of exercise, I would have lost my mind by now (LOL).
I was born in Bossier and raised in Shreveport. When I was 20, I left Louisiana to serve my country as a USAF Medic for 24 years. This afforded me the opportunity to see the world; protect millions; and transport, mend and provide care to thousands. Once I retired from the USAF, I knew it was time for a change.
After being away, I returned home to continue my life in Bossier City, La., where I could be closer to my family and friends, including my wife, four children and grandson.
I acquired my sixth degree from LSUS in Digital Art and changed my direction in life.
I’m not marching 300+ troops down 5th Avenue in New York City, leading 72 airmen, or transporting wounded hero soldiers to their destination hospitals anymore. These days, I am living a simpler life by selling and marketing artists’ work and providing my services to the BAC.
There are no “Art Emergencies,” only “Art Inspirations.”
