After many years of thinking about having a website, I finally put one together. My website serves a few functions. The first function is to show case my artwork. I’m an artist first and am skilled in a variety of areas. The second function is to display my academic research, as I am a researcher and practitioner. The final function is to have a place to blog about things that I find of interest. This is where my blog theme, “Espy: to see or notice,” comes into play.


“Espy: to see or notice” is a blog dedicated to exploring the moments and ideas that promote extended knowledge. Espied moments and ideas, at times, cause great insight. The insight can lead us to discovering new approaches, techniques or a better understanding. Art, higher education, social media, gaming, and being first-generation are a few of the many topics that will be explored.


Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I hope you enjoy my art and writing. For any questions, feel free to contact me.
