This website has already lived a few lives.

It started as “Joyful Participation in the Life of the Planet: Design and travel to communicate, inspire, and foster positive change.” (Nerd points awarded for the use of an obscure Buckminster Fuller quote!) I used that platform to write about my study abroad experiences, and my various passion projects like building a cello from scratch. As I completed my undergraduate program and began working professionally I annexed the blog completely from my site, thinking it was a little too much, a little too wordy, and at times a little too personal. Then I found myself missing the act of writing, and missing the connections that come from putting your passions out on display. Finally, the site transitioned to what it is today: resume, portfolio, and blog combined.

Let’s explore.
