The world craves meaningful design.
When I was in the third grade, I broke both of my arms falling off of the monkey bars; I had tried to climb around the outside instead of down the middle like everyone else. Even then, I was convinced that conventionality is boring.
Today, I’m a double major/triple minor in International Business, Operations and Supply Chain, Psychology, French, and Russian at the University of South Carolina Honors College. How did I decide what to study?
I find satisfaction in my work by pursuing opportunities to add unique value to projects—I want to create work that is a reflection of my own experiences, skills, and perspectives. I don’t want a job that involves making spreadsheets or using some sort of mold. I don’t want an output that would be identical whether I were involved or not. I want to build the mold myself.
I’m a photographer, designer, director, producer, artist, writer, etc. I don’t really know what to call myself because labels have limitations. The only thing that matters is I create work that I believe makes the world a better place.
So what is this website?
I needed to create a space for my work. I needed to create a vault of my art, my writings, and my music. Over the coming years I plan on adding to this website constantly. Whether it's art projects, songs I've written, photo diaries of my travels, or anything else I pursue, this website will be a starting point for the rest of my life and it will be a method of documenting my experiences.
I certainly don't expect a website to encapsulate who I am as a person, as no lines of code could summarize something as complex as life, but I do hope that it will begin to paint a picture of who I am and what I'm passionate about. It’s a resume, it’s a CV, it’s a portfolio—it’s a glimpse into where I’ve been and where I’m headed.
It’s nice to meet you.
