If you're on this page, you've likely seen my professional profile on LinkedIn as well as my technical CV on Github. Here, I want to call out my creative work.

In my spare time, I moonlight as an artist and I do a lot of mixed media usually involving acrylic painting, inking, and illustration. Additionally, after over a decade-long hiatus, I've found my love of fashion again and have gotten back into doing custom womenswear. In this area, I'm currently working on my side project which explores the intersection of fashion and tech.

In addition to some longterm runway aspirations, I'd also love to eventually be able to do fashion work with: Rihanna, Madelaine Petsch, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Annie Murphy, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Camila Mendes, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Coolidge, Jennifer Garner, Blake Lively, Christine Baranski, Rebekka Sorensen-Kjelstrup, Alana Morshead, Jolie Anna Andreatta, and Daniel Lawson.
