Cleveland Born & Bred
Like Jerome, I was an overly sensitive queer kid who grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and ventured out to California to explore my artistic dreams. Ohio (Cleveland in particular) breeds a type of artist like no other.
I have the best parents in the world! I could not have tackled The Jerome Project without them. My mother and father NEVER waiver with their love and support for me. They recognized the artist in me when I was very young and have been nurturing my creative drive ever since.
