  2. In April 2010 a massive oil spill began in the Gulf. The entire country was glued to the news until the well was capped, and then we forgot about it.

    As the year anniversary was approaching I became curious, just how much oil was that exactly? Where would it have gone? What I found was shocking.

    So in an effort to further our discussion on oil dependency I created this short animation to help illustrate just how dependent we truly are on oil.

    UPDATE: A few people have mentioned strange things with the audio. I've changed a couple audio settings and hope it fixes any problem people may have had.

  3. Behind the scenes of the photo shoot "Upcycled Fashion" that is dedicated to showcasing eco-friendly tips for everyday life. We realized our vision by using conceptually engaging sets and fashions made from either recycled materials or vintage inspired prints and fabrics. Each look presents a poetic idea on how to preserve the environment while also preserving your style.
