Zach is a friend, fellow SVA-alumnus, and an exciting new-media artist (http://zachkrall.com).
A day short of a month since we moved in, and the studio doors are now open.

Waterbury Street in July
Yesterday we took to Capitol Hill to protest against the Republican effort to take away healthcare from those that need it the most, while giving billions in tax cuts to the top 1%. That is outrageously unacceptable. Five hundred protesters from all over the country and 155 arrested in planned civil disobedience. Our chants echoed up and down the Senate halls. Healthcare is a human right. Healthcare is a human right. Healthcare is a human right.
On July 1st, 2017, we moved into our first studio together.
