Idle hands, BE GONE! I've recently started a couple internships and I'm super pumped. Obviously, you should be, too. I'm currently running social media for Filter Photo Festival, which is an annual photo festival every October here in Chicago, dedicated to fostering and connecting the city's vibrant photo community. The festival includes portfolio reviews, lectures and workshops with national and internationally established artists and curators.
Be sure to 'Like' us on Facebook for constant updates on photo events in Chicago!
Next, Colossal news! I just signed on as the first ever intern at Colossal. ZING! Seriously though, I'm super excited to be helping Christopher Jobson maintain and update this hugely popular Art and Design blog. Check it out, but be warned, heavy doses of daily awe and artistic inspiration will follow.
finally got around to adding some more projects to my site. check out the new "photos" page menu, and added project "A Lens, Darkly." It's a bit of an older project, but I've always had a soft spot for B&W and surrealist photography.
