Rollin’ with it


Thesis has been super stressful but I’m really thankful for my Jemie who always makes sure I take breaks and is a constant source of delight in my life. She’s super smart, fun, sassy, and sweet. HAPPY 9 YEARS to the best dog one could ask for.

Still Open


I thought it was about time to change my homepage graphic, but I’m really going to miss my “open” sign. I plan to make some changes to my site in the near feature, mainly updating the functionality while still keeping the look pretty simple. Hopefully that will happen sooner than later.

A Product of Delight


Allan Chochinov, partner of Core77 and one of my professors from last Fall, is heading up a new MFA program at SVA called Products of Design. I think I have an unintentional theme of “delight” in my work so I was really flattered when they asked to feature one of my products on their homepage. More here.
