Hometown: Morgantown, KY / Proud father of Laney Bell age 3 / I like to read books, watch movies, listen to music & make art / After working for a horrible human-being and learning how to not treat people in the work place, I became determined to own a business and treat people kindly.  Yellowberri, at least for me, was spawned out of need for a creative work environment and to spite all the horrible bosses.
