My Fall Lab

I am saying yes to sustaining myself financially in a way that sustains the earth and its citizens through art, compassion, development, and social justice. I am saying yes to deciphering these details to decode oppressive forces that impact me personally and socially.

Current Guiding Question

How do I converge, commit, and focus on my passions to turn them into my livelihood?
