Harry Potter and the Social Network

For my complex systems term project, I decided to map the social network of Harry Potter. Not the whole network, that would mean I would have to go through all 11,379 pages on the Harry Potter Wiki.

The Revamping of a Logo

During my time as a Marketing & Strategy Intern for Warmilu, I revamped their logo & other visual branding, to look more professional, and to better communicate their message as a company.

Casey Abrams @ The Ark

Posted on Aug 23, 2013 in Adventures, Blog, Music

Recently I got the chance to hear Casey Abrams in all his riff-tastic and scruffy glory. He began the concert singing in the back of the nearly pitch black hall, and made his way toward the stage. His album is great – but he’s much, much better live.

A couple nights ago, I broke out the inks my Dad bought for me in China, and doodled: Go here for background and some more Chinese painting doodles.          

A Day at the Detroit Institute of Art

Posted on Aug 12, 2013 in Adventures, Blog, Detroit

Note: this post contains a drawing of a Greek-style statue. So unclothed. You were warned. It’s been a year since residents of Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties gained free general admission to the DIA, thanks to a successful millage.

Day 14: Our last day in Samox, and we spent it mostly with Doña Olivia’s family watching a four-town soccer tournament. And boy, do they take their soccer seriously.We said our reluctant goodbyes to our friends, and of course, posed for some necessary photos with our host family and our various excellent Samox tour guides.

Guatemala Days 10-13, May 14th-17th

Day 10: The students had fun sticking post-it notes on various body parts of their visiting teachers. Later in the day, we sat by the side of the main road, and the children taught us the names of body parts in Q’eqchi’. Quid pro quo. Day 11: Red light, green light proved to be an immensely […]
