Today is my grad review! I am very excited! Three years of exploration, discovery, learning and growing. Brooks has been one of the best choices of my life! The friends that I have made, the faculty that always got you to think a little further and the technical skills I have learned are incredible. The road to here has been intense and I can’t believe today is the day! I am proud of my portfolio and very excited to meet the outside judge. I am of course a little nervous too but thinking of all my family and friends and of course my dog Rui; I calm down because the support I get from my loved ones is so strong that I can’t help but feel grounded. Thank you everybody for your constant encouragement and believing in me. Here is one of my favorite images I have taken. Emma, my muse and Copper the Afghan connecting at the Salton Sea.
