I originally went to my undergraduate college to study philosophy. I could not get enough of eastern religious studies, theology, cosmology, all of it. I lived for any class or lecture that had to do with our definition of what is, what isn't and what do we think this all means. I got the degree but no answers. Life is what you make of it. I could have told them that… 

I still to the present day have a unique fascination with the art that comes about through the narrow constructs that often encompass the idea of what is correct in society. It is these tensions that expose the beauty that lies in the range and depth of the individual human experience. We often forget in our pursuit to make a better world, to be better people.
