With the start of every year, the ubiquitous pressure of resolutions regarding change and habits is heavily felt. This year I want to focus on streamlining the process of exhibition of all of my work, both the everyday snapshots and longterm projects. Over these many years, my wordpress had been a mixture of inspiration and personal work, but now with the many different social media platforms and the creation of my website I had decided it’s time to let go. The overlap of websites and apps along with the decision process of what content to post where became taxing. I’ve decided to archive my wordpress and have an expanded journal attached to my website using Format.


Throughout my life I never regularly kept a diary, but still loved the idea of a journal.  As a visual person my version of a diary has been notebooks with lists, quotes, tearsheets and the like for organization and creative flow. It’s not because I had a dislike for writing, I never happened to discipline myself on the practice. Now as I am finishing up my undergrad, the writing courses I have taken seem to have left an impression and the flow of writing is present – hopefully not temporarily.


The Thinking Tank was an outlet for my creative inspiration and will continue doing so on tumblr and pinterest. This journal will be comprised of posts filled with bits and pieces of my life, glimpses of my everyday occurrences along with an in depth view of my creative work process. To those of you who have followed over the years, thank you for reading.

We are just now starting to feel the first signs of autumn here in San Francisco. One positive of these lingering summery days is that they create perfect conditions for the marine layer – so we have been seeing lots of Karl the Fog! This past summer was a exceptional one, full of wonderful experiences with friends both old and new. Here are some of my favorite snapshots documenting the last few months.

Cement Factory

Posted on July 23, 2015

The Cement Factory came to attention in 1973, as an abandoned cement factory partially in ruins, comprised of over 30 silos, underground galleries, and huge engine rooms. Architect Ricardo Bofill bought it and began renovation… or, re-architecture. He defined the space by demolishing certain structures, cleaning cement, exposing previously concealed structures and creating the landscape architecture by planting varied plants such as eucalyptus, palms, olive trees and cypresses; renovation work lasted nearly two years. Read more here.

He’s always saying these amazing, profound things. Just recently he was talking about how “better is the enemy of the good,” and that was really sticking with me. Just don’t try to make things better all the time; it’s usually good and it gets worse if you keep trying to fiddle with it. Gia on Francis Ford Coppola

I saw Palo Alto last week and couldn’t recommend it more! I am already planning to see it again with two of my friends. It really is the most honest portrayal of american youth I have seen, and the cinematography is so dreamy and beautiful. I’m also really loving Gia’s photos of the cast over on Papermag.
