In my past professional lives, I have been a salesman, an auto mechanic, a draftsman, a security guard, a cartographer of cemeteries, and a Russian, Serbian, and Croatian Linguist whilst in the Army. Now, I have found my calling in life, hence the architectural student status. I am in my 5th and last year of schooling to get my Bachelors of Architecture.

For those that have asked, I am from Tennessee and always will be, regardless of what state I am currently residing, hence the TN in my name.

This sculpture is located in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. You can see
the Downtown skyline beyond.It was designed by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen in 1985-1988, and
was commissioned especially for this spot. It weighs more than 7,000 pounds.
The spoon is 52 feet long, and the cherry alone weighs 1,200 pounds. The
sculpture is so huge that it had to be fabricated at two separate shipyards:
one in Maine, the other in Rhode Island.
