Daring and Intimate Brave Space

It’s been a few months since I last wrote on this blog. I’ve been busy with traveling and lots of exciting freelancing opportunities.

NYC in Spring: 2018 Part 3

Our second day in NYC was filled with Tiffany glass, delicious cheese, art installations, and magic. We began our morning by going to the NYC Historical Society in the west side, next to the Natural History Museum. I don’t believe I’ve ever been there before but it was worth it. What blew my mind was […]

Repost: Tossed and Found

Several years ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing several incredible circus performers for the 2015 Chicago Contemporary Circus Festival. This is the last post that I’m putting up.

NYC in Spring: 2018

Winter Trip 2018: Part 8

January 1st was our last full day on the trip. Sad panda. But we made it count! We started our day at the Victoria and Albert. I’ve mentioned previously about my recent love of this museum. As a kid, I found the museum exceedingly dull but a combination of rebranding and maturity (on my part) […]

New Mexico: Part 2

Meow Wolf was worth the trip. Regular readers of this blog know how I feel about immersive art experiences. This bowling alley turned art space delivered. I’ll try to not reveal too many of the secrets but be forewarned. When we pulled into the Meow Wolf parking lot, I could already tell that we had […]
