Instructor Biography

Victor Nevárez aka Shaquille lives in Arizona where he makes vines, draws pilchards, and cooks fancy food every day. He is good at many things, but talking about himself is not one of them. Also, he is me. Hi guys. Sorry to trick you. It was me the whole time. I wrote this bad bio for myself.
