In the summer of 2014 in Paris, I wandered through the city and began to notice drawings scratched on walls, graffiti lurking in corners, wall paintings in a funky nook, and fragments of murals on a crowded street.

One of the ways in which I've learned most about myself is through personal projects. Some have turned into businesses, books, relationships — even films.
