I went to California University of Pennsylvania and I was a Graphic Design major.

I may be biased, but I have the best dog. His name is Tyrion, he is a box lab (a boxador) and he is a little over a year old.

I love to take him to the part and watch him run, and we also taught him a lot of fun tricks.
