How my parents shaped me and my business

Couldn’t think of a click bait title for this one so I’m just laying it out there 😉 mother’s day was last week, but you can appreciate your parents any time! This post is a shout out to the ‘rents and how they inspired me 🙂

My mother is a beacon of sunshine, and nothing can ever dampen her positivity. She stays the course, happily plodding along. She is also incredibly organized, which is a trait she fortunately passed along to me. She takes care of everyone and makes them feel at ease. She also appreciates a good TV drama as much as I do.

Dad is so tall it made cropping this picture hard lol

My father is always pushing me to try new things- we often had competitions at restaurants to order the most unusual foods. He is unapologetically himself and has a wide variety interests; he enjoys D&D as much as he enjoys fishing. He is the reason I am a huge nerd; we played EverQuest and World of Warcraft together when I was growing up. He also took me to Gen Con where I won a Happy Birthday Pikachu (one of my most prized possessions). Because of him, I will always feel at home at game shops and conventions, and hope to one day sell my creations at a convention like Gen Con!
