Although I don’t consume a lot of pop culture content, I pay a lot of attention to the trends and shifts in society as a whole. This often leaves me with a lot of opinions that I don’t get the opportunity to express. As a result, I’ve done a fair bit of article-writing over the years. Some of them have been published, others live only on this site.
Multimedia Triptych (link)
My writing covers a variety of topics. In the past, I have written about public policy, student leadership, entrepreneurship, marketing, and technology.
My most recent project is an essay in three parts. It’s kind of a triptych of multimedia excerpts that I have stitched together into three “weaves”:
- Analog Iteration
- Digital Perfection
- Peaceable Kingdom
They are meant to be read in order on a laptop or desktop screen. The first one takes about 15 minutes to complete, and is available here.
I used to enjoy writing open letters, as they forced me to take stands on issues and be accountable for my words. This helped sharpen my perception and required me to continually evaluate, update, and defend my worldview.
