Michael C.

Life Story

I was in dangerous situations constantly as a poor child in a Florida slum. I developed PTSD from it. I was in a battlefield of the mind.

Trauma has a different effect on everyone. The same trauma that inspires one to go to college, get a degree and become a senator to affect policy, can lead someone else to walk into a liquor store, buy a bottle of tequila and fall right in. That was me.

The logistics of being homeless are impossible. I hope to start sculpting, painting, and writing again. I hope to get the right nutrition, and rent a storage locker, to get started.

Ask me about making a costume for you, and about my famed project, the Spartan Seahawk. If you'd like to commission me on art or writing, I would be happy to talk. If you want to be trained in ping pong, that too.
