In 10 words or less, why should a student want to be involved in this department?
I made a piece once that involved dumping several flats of strawberries on the gallery floor.

What initially drew you to this department?  What keeps you coming back?
We have a really amazing faculty. I visited a lot of small liberal arts colleges when I was choosing, and K's professors really blew the rest out of the water.

What’s your biggest piece of advice to first years and sophomores in this department?
Take Visual Fundamentals early, don't put it off! And invest in good safety equipment. Respirators exist for a very good reason.

How does your department connect to your other interests and activities?
I chose to study at a liberal arts college because I wanted to have something to make art about. My professors and peers have always encouraged me to explore other content that interested me, and some of my most dynamic classmates have been students from other majors; they bring a lot of fresh stuff to the table.

What’s the most valuable thing you’ve learned at K?
Never under estimate how important sleeping and eating well is.

What has been your favorite class at K?  Why?
German 101. Nothing is quite as fun as being reverted back to Kindergarten language skills.

What is your SIP?
It's complicated.

What are your career aspirations/next steps after K?
I'm moving to South Korea to teach English.
