I'm a fairly hardline atheist and anti-theist, secular humanist. I work as a graphic designer and in my spare time I design t-shirts and other graphics, as well as being an artist and photographer.

I am a former Baptist Christian of 18 years.
Check out my URL to see some of my t-shirts, including some of my popular atheist shirts.
