    Looking back on a semester a few months later always brings unexpected things to the surface. Images and drawings I loved now seem less important, and vice versa. As I'm editing my work again for an upcoming portfolio, I'm realizing that excess is evil! This back(b)log includes work from a Spring... View full entry

    Today I'm posting a project I completed about 2.5 months ago now. Just to post something...I'm feeling a little slack regarding this site, I suppose, and wanting to begin a routine that will remind me that I should constantly be editing and documenting my work as I approach portfolio time(s)...

    so, the first year is done. over the past week, i've managed to leave my debit card at a restaurant in DC, develop a strong, strong desire to drive a golf cart into water, locate a 'non-descript grey car' in the woods of chapel hill, and evade a major repair bill for my car, which is about to...

    As a short break arrives, I find myself traveling south again to visit my family in North Carolina. I haven't been able to post much this term, as RISD + life has been all consuming. I feel very pleased to have had Kyna Leski this term in my first RISD studio. To sum it up into a sentence, this... View full entry

    Sorry for the false start last week. Some information, since this will be my first real post: I arrived in Providence this summer equipped with my southern accent, [small] car.
