I love to learn. I seek out multi-cultural and historic assignments, because I love to learn about new cultures and history. I'm particularly fascinated by the way that people are the same underneath the clothing, food, housing, and customs of their culture.

Touring some of northern RI's historic houses:

What I learned when I took an Illustrator class at RISD:
