      Absolutely not- lol. This may seem crazy, but I didn’t start the company to make money, I did it because I thought it’d be fun and it would give me a chance to explore a whole other side of my personality. In fact, I decided that for the first 2 years I won’t take a salary but just keep pushing to make Lizzard bigger and better. Also, I donate partial proceeds back to science- my idea is science inspires fashion and fashion supports science.

      The whole thing started really small only making a few T-shirts here and there and now we are in stores and ship all over the world. It’s crazy to think someone in India right now is rocking one my shirts- that’s wild. I never thought Lizzard would become what it has and I urge you- if you have crazy, wild ideas go for it- you’ll never regret it!

      *on a somewhat cool note- I did buy a “Lizzard Fashion” car- I got a blue Prius and it arrives tomorrow! if you follow Lizzard Fashion on facebook you can check it out!
