For the final portfolio project, the process of designing has gone pretty smoothly; however, the bulk of the work remains with writing out descriptions for each portion.

For the final portfolio project, I’ve decided to build my website through the Wix platform. It’s been pretty fun playing around with the different template that the builder provides.

Without any goals, motives, or purpose, the flâneur aimlessly wanders the city as to absorb each detail of their surrounding. Following the pace of […]

I have yet to begin filming for the vine project; however, I have several ideas for what I want to film. Having the limitation of six seconds serves as a double-edged sword.
