Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays To All!

I am currently in North Carolina, celebrating Christmas with my family. I drove down with my parents and my dog, Tucker, and have enjoyed a wonderful few days of family, music and food.

I thought I’d share with you all what I’ve been up to since my last post (months ago!). I’ve completed my Fall semester at Connecticut College, leaving me with just one semester left until graduation. Exciting, to say the least!

This semester, I conducted an Independent Study in Photography, with Professor Ted Hendrickson as my advisor. I have compiled a portfolio of over 30 photos of New London, CT, the beautiful small city near my hometown. Some of those can be seen here.

I also finished my minor in Computer Science, a very exciting development. My writing has been strengthened through a course in Writing the Short Story with Professor Blanche Boyd, and I studied Queer Theory and History with Professor Ariella Rotramel. Overall, a very successful semester.

Who knows what 2015 will bring? I have many plans and intentions, and will be sure to keep everyone here updated as I move forward!

My New Year’s Resolution: create, explore, and enjoy myself!

Photos from New London, CT – Fall 2014

This semester I undertook an independent study in Photography at Connecticut College under the tutelage of Professor Ted Hendrickson. I spent a few hours each week wandering the streets of New London, capturing the details of this small city. These are just a very few of the photographs I included in my portfolio this fall. To see more of my photography, check me out on Instagram.

Photos From Oxfordshire, England – August 2014

I went to England with my family for ten days in August. We spent a day and a half in London before travelling to the tiny town of Napton, where we rented a 58-foot long canal boat for a week. We flew over 3000 miles in a about 15 hours to travel just 108 miles in 7 days. I loved every minute of it. The English countryside is gorgeous, and we were blessed with some of the best weather you can imagine, though a little chilly at times, considering I was coming off a summer in New York!

Here are some of my favorite photos from the trip:
