Every year of my life I grow more convinced that it is wisest and best to fix our attention on the beautiful and the good, and dwell as little as possible on the evil and the false.”  —Richard Cecil

I am most inspired in environments of peace and the rhythms of nature that connect us to our most true selves. My passions include working on layout design, typography, line art illustration, watercolor, and lifestyle photography.

Gentrification is a highly important topic these days in major cities, such as Seattle, New York City, Detroit, New Orleans and many more than seem to have more hipster cafes than community center and less kids playing in their front yard and more construction workers taking up room on the roads. If you lived long enough in Seattle, your view of home may have changed these last few years. Gentrification is a term nearly everyone has heard of, but it remained without a precise definition.

The definition of the word, biography, is the written history of a person’s life. We were challenged by our professor to create a magazine article, telling a story about a memory we deeply remember, secrets we wanted the world to hear, or a narrative about our life up to this point. I decided to write about the struggles of impermanence. I am constantly reflecting on being and its sufficiency. In this article, I write from a third-person perspective about myself, about finding what remains true in life, which most of us have felt is so fleeting. I recount fond childhood memories at the lake and seeing God in nature.
