So this is me attempting to strike a balance somewhere in between my “big-kid profession” and that part of me that thrives in creativity and imagination. I tried subscribing to one entirely and like a third-world condom, it just didn’t fit right. Working as a composition instructor is fulfilling in many respects, but the freedom to cater to and further my own creativity isn’t there. Realizing that took sometime, leading to some days face-down in anger and sadness at what I’d let my life become, but this site, for me, is a return to my true form. I’m a doodler `til death; the majority of my notes from grad school and faculty meetings are covered in images not unlike those that you’ll find here on this page (not like this page in particular, but you get the idea).
