    to visit planet earth, you will have to be born as a human child…”

    so much pain in the world can be traced back to the way adults rarely respect kids as the full, complex, deeply thinking-and-feeling human beings that they are, in those formative early years of our lives during which we first try to understand what it means to be a person, to experience and express emotion—to process fear, sadness, love, vulnerability, and everything in between. which makes…

    hello friends! for the past five months, I've been hard at work creating this 6-minute experimental animated short film about gender & identity. this was my first time doing claymation as well as composing an original score for my work, and I'm proud of how it turned out (as well as relieved to have finally finished! 😅)

    many thanks to my peers and the wonderful faculty in my grad program at Syracuse, as well as my friends and family for all…

    I wish I liked this movie more, but the good news is that while watching this I downloaded an app called Penguin Isle and began some very important work on raising a colony of penguins, so in the coming weeks, I will be content to stay indoors and wait out this pandemic while tending to my penguin children

    when I heard Netflix was doing an animated adult sci-fi anthology I was incredibly excited! went into this first episode expecting to love it... but 15 minutes later, I was left not only unconvinced, but doubtful that I'll be watching any more of the series. 

    personally I was turned off by the superficial, poorly written, misogynistic dystopian vision on display here. despite a surface-level impulse to disguise itself as a feminist critique of patriarchal institutions, the episode remains rooted in…
