Hey all! I've had an amazing opportunity to display my photos at Madcap Coffee for a little while now, and they will be up through the end of this week. So if you haven't had the opportunity to stop by yet, here's your final chance! I can guarantee you a real coffee experience, well and being able to see my art is of course a bonus :)
Madcap is located on 98 Monroe Center, in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. Hours are Mon - Sat 7am to 7 pm. Visit their website for more info, http://www.madcapcoffee.com/.
I would also like to thank Trevor Corlett, the owner of Madcap, for giving me this great opportunity to share my work with the Grand Rapids community. To me, who is an amateur artist and a recent college graduate, an opportunity like this is like a dream job offer. When someone sees something great in your work, it inspires, motivates, and helps you grow. So thank you Trevor for opening another door for me and helping me grow as an artist, I will always be grateful. Also, thank you for educating the community about a real coffee experience and serving the best coffee of all time! I <3 Madcap Coffee.
"The Kidness of Strangers" is a nice post written by Jessica Helfand that's worth everyone's read. I always had much respect for Massimo Vignelli for being a design genius and creating what he calls "timeless design." But this man is also very much respected for being a kind man, a trait that's hard to run into these days in the design field, especially among the successful and well-known.

A brilliant singer & musician who just happens to be my very own sister and I somehow got lucky to be her personal photographer. She's also got an awesome website that's worth a visit, made & designed by a very talented designer, Andrew Matveev.
So I finally got to starting my own blog (mainly for all of you who have been asking) where I will be posting my personal work and sharing my insights on photography, design, and sharing the exciting things happening in my life.
Thanks for stopping by and check back often!
Yours truely :)
