How is your life affected by COVID-19?

I've been more creative than ever!

Have I benefited from a COVID relief fund?


How do you feel in general?

I feel optimistic that this period in time will help us all slow down to contemplate our lives and drive us inward for an even deeper creative output.

A short funny/memorable/touching story on the job.

I met a guy who was in Metallica and suddenly within days we formed a band called Megadeth!
