About




Chris Burnett / cburnettdesign @ me.com

There are times when I design, and there are times when I skate.
Other times I produce music, which tends to keep me up late.
These are times that I love, and sometimes, that I hate.
But they’re all the best times, because I get to create.



Right Now:
☀  Smelling the roses. ☀
