Heather is only a hater when it comes to mayonnaise and is a lover of the other white meat.

JUSTIN HARRISON

When I was little I promised my mom that I'd thank her first when I made it big. So, hi mom! Oh and hi dad too. (Wouldn't want any squabbling back home now would we?) When I'm not slamming DVD boxes or adding production value to GRFX I can be found killing renders & chasing ferrets...
