Hi. I'm your friendly neighborhood doodler. You can find me sketching away in the crowd at CreativeMornings MIA, much like Waldo. I'm shy, but friendly.
My hobbies include: sketching, playing my ukulele, photo editing, impersonating Jack Skellington, puns.
Photo retouching/ Photoshop, analogue Photoshop, bunnies, Tim Burton's filmography, dreams, and music.
I'm always learning, so my favorite answer is everything.

I would teach, but I think I do that anyway.
Can you really be aware of something that requires no effort? Symmetry is something I do unsolicited.

If you have a thing that you want to do ... just grab the reins and fuckin' do it.
Do what makes you happy is bullsh*t advice.

The more unqualified you are to take something on, the more you'll benefit from it.
Bite off more than you can chew and figure it out later.

Our fear is a creative ally that we should treasure and befriend.

The most meaningful and memorable moments of my life were brought on by moments of full body terror, so maybe I should start paying attention to them.
It's unsafe to play it safe— and I've got a chart proving that!
