Creative Projects

The creative and whimsical stuff. The fruits of my inner goofball and desire to unearth beauty in the world.


If we’ve met IRL, it’s likely you’ve noticed I’ve got some ~interesting~ ink stickers. Most are mathematical, many are whimsical, some are meaningful. It's exciting when people ask about them; it's like a mini science outreach opportunity! Well, I present to you - a visual catalog & explainer for the concept behind each one.


Lactate threshold testing revealed that I ran “hard” too often and my “easy” days weren’t nearly easy enough for me. I went down a rabbit hole of researching the science behind it all…

Visually delightful explainers have fueled my enthusiasm and curiosity for science. In the spirit of digesting what I learned to encourage the running-curious and running-enthusiast, here is my take. Happy sponge-growing and brick-building, dear friends!


I left my corporate job in June 2023 with no plans for next steps. There wasn’t a specific moment I started feeling unfulfilled at work. I only remember the feelings/thoughts themselves: “I’m good at my job, but I don’t feel good doing it. I’m stressed constantly even though I don’t work that many hours. I feel inauthentic. I get most of my personal fulfillment from my hobbies. But lately, I even feel self-critical on stage and on the trails, which used to feel like carefree play.” 

I worked with my coach, Ahran, as I stepped into a messy journey of re-evaluating my values in career and in life. I started to realize that it’s okay to want a career that is personally meaningful, even if it leads me away from what is expected. And it’s okay if I don’t know exactly what that looks like yet.


Pacing people at ultras deserves more structured thought beforehand. There’s a unique opportunity to understand the psychology and motivations of your racer. I created this questionnaire for Leona, whom I pace regularly :-)
