I smile way more than this!

I smile way more than this!

"Sly toldja everybody is a star.  You just hafta be put into the dipper and po'd back onto the world, and men will see your good works, and glorify God Jehovah." -Little Richard

Currently, I’m a first year PhD student in the Digital Media program at Georgia Tech in Atlanta Georgia. I have a Masters degree in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. I’m from the southern regions of the United States, Los Angeles and Atlanta, GA respectively. I feel passionate about using media for participatory and civic purposes.

Aesthetically, I'm interested in beauty - both the obvious and the mundane; as well as quiet moments that can leave a lasting impression. Photographically, I come from the lineage of Eve Arnold and Roy DeCarava. Academically, I look to Audre Lorde, bell hooks, and Michel Foucault for inspiration.

I left an unsatisfying career in the dust. I’m in my 40s and am learning to code, making generative art, and games. Anything is possible.
