Last summer, I was working at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, enjoying the challenge but wondering why I was spending the vast majority of my summer sitting in a chair in a tiny room with walls the color of toothpaste.

Somehow, most likely at the suggestion of Joseph Rooks, I stumbled upon Chris Guillebeau's website, the Art of Non Conformity, while on lunch break one day.  I read nearly the whole website and began to think, what do I really want to do with my last summer in college?

This website is the first major step in the fulfillment of that dream.  I hope the blog contains insights and information you, dear reader, find useful.  Perhaps you are looking for a portrait photographer in the Howard County area.  If I don't provide what you're looking for, I'll help you find someone who does.  Maybe you're looking for some art to set as your desktop background or adorn your walls - it's possible something here will catch your eye.

This website will grow over the coming months, especially once school lets out in the middle of May.  I'd love your comments and suggestions - email me!

My next steps are to have a full-fledged business running and find ways that I can serve my community back home in Howard County, Maryland.  I hope this blog can document what will end up to be an incredibly rewarding summer, as well as be a relevant destination as time goes forward!

Thanks for visiting!
