Though he has been a designer since 1978, it was only 2 1/2 years ago that Valicenti decided to follow his heart instead of just the rules. Total anarchy? Certainly not. Not / from a suburban father of 2, married for 17 years! Rather, he is a mild-mannered madman in sheep's clothing / orbiting pop culture's magnetic pull. Valicenti hopes that Thirst's energies will be successful in achieving / self-expression without overpowering the communication intent. See Valicenti 4 yorself . hee wil b nervus.
