About

I am interested in visual storytelling using images and text.

The only thing more important than the stories we tell each other are the ones we tell ourselves. Maybe "stories" is too simple… Narratives provide meaning to inform what we should or should not value. They help us define what is real and true. They are numerous, spoken, unspoken, conscious, and unconscious. They allow us to tell ourselves who we are and what we believe.

My work is in no small part a personal exploration to uncover the long lineage of narratives that enable me to say ‘This is me’. Many of my current projects are studies of readability and understanding as it relates to these personal narratives.
