I’m a graduate student at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), pursuing my MA in Cinema Studies and MFA in Writing. After graduation, I hope to pursue my Ph.D. in film studies and to teach – to inspire other students who, like me, have been captivated by the cinema apparatus and the moving image.

The SCAD Conundrum

It’s a strange phenomenon, attending an art school. At times, I still can’t believe I’m here, – strolling down the hallways with future painters, novelists, screen-writers, fashion designers and the like. I see them with cradling their MacBook Pros and wide canvases, pass by their hipster vans, patchwork jeans, and multicolored hair wondering ‘what the hell am I doing here?’
