What is your favorite college memory?

  • Working late nights in the art studio with my friends and all the shenanigans that occurred.
  • Late night walks around campus and 3 a.m. runs to Shipley's for donuts
  • The first night in Italy, walking to the beach and dancing in the sea with a few friends, basking in the joy of being there with such good company and to study art and history.

Start drinking coffee. In all seriousness, be yourself and explore! Take a class outside your comfort zone and don’t be afraid to leave campus and explore Little Rock and the natural wonders of Arkansas.

What are you passionate about?

Many things! The liberal arts and its place in the modern world, art, film, music, and literature, the environment and exploring.

Personal Quote

Paul Klee once described an artist "as being like a tree, drawing the minerals of experience from its roots - things observed, read, told and felt - and slowly processing them into new leaves"
